Determining if using the Finalist Compatibility Interface or native mode

Products Affected:  Finalist
Windows and Unix platforms call Finalist in native mode.

Mainframe platforms can either call the Compatibility Interface (C/I) or native Finalist.

Compatibility Interface

Usually a COBOL program for the mainframe would have the following statement:

CALL 'FINAL' USING FINAL-CALL-AREA  (FINALOL in CICS)

Native Finalist:

If using the Finalist batch driver, the following statement would be used:

PGM=FINALIST

If using a COBOL program in native mode, the following statements would be found:

CALL 'PBFNInit'
CALL 'PBFNInfo'
CALL 'PBFNProcess'
CALL 'PBFNTerminate'
