Description of Init, Fini, and Boot Methods

These methods are one-time action methods as defined by the Resource Management API specifications. The sample implementation that is included with the DSDL does not illustrate the use of these methods. However, all the facilities in the DSDL are available to these methods as well, should you need these methods. Typically, the Init and the Boot methods would be exactly the same for a resource type implementation to implement a one-time action. The Fini method typically would perform an action that undoes the action of the Init or Boot methods.
