The checkPointTransaction function closes the specified ObjectRepository database archive file {aGor} and marks the end of a series of transactions. When a beginTransaction function is evaluated, the ObjectRepository treats all transactions as temporary until either of the abortTransaction, checkPointTransaction, or commitTransaction functions are evaluated. If an abortTransaction function is evaluated, all objects stored in the ObjectRepository, up to the previous beginTransaction, are rolled back; however, if a checkPointTransaction or a commitTransaction function is evaluated, all objects stored in the ObjectRepository, up to the previous beginTransaction, are made persistent.


The checkPointTransaction function leaves the ObjectRepository with the current transaction still in progress. The checkPointTransaction function is equivalent to invoking a commitTransaction function immediately followed by another beginTransaction function.
