Calling the Logger.fatal() method

You can terminate a job by calling the method from your Processor implementation.

When Java™ code calls the Logger.fatal() method, the job does not return the control to the Java code. The Processor.terminate() method, which stops the job cannot be invoked. This might result in an issue while restarting the job.

If your Java code requires a termination process, then use the ConnectorException object or any other Exception object, because the Processor.terminate() method is invoked with the isAborted argument set to true.

The following example shows Java code calls the Logger.fatal() method. The job ends and the messageMy job terminates abnormally is logged to the job log with the message ID IIS-CONN-JAVA-00015.

Logger.fatal("My job terminates abnormally.");
