Doc1gen generating a non zero byte AFP file in a GEN0033A failure scenario

Product Feature: DOC1GEN

Issue

Doc1Gen can produce multiple outputs simultaneously.

While executing a set of resources to produce both PDF and AFP output the PDF was produced with zero bytes but the AFP had a byte value but was not viewable\printable as the file is incomplete. 

Cause

Each print stream is executed in different manner. AFP stream is written out as the execution progresses, whereas PDF output is kept in memory before writing out to disk.

As a result, an incomplete AFP is produced. This is expected behaviour.
