Allow an Atomic Action for Asynchronous Check-In

       This article describes a method for enterprise users to
request that the Document Interchange Architecture CHECK-IN function
be processed either synchronously or asynchronously.

      An enterprise user may wish to check an object back into the
library and then delete the local copy of the object once the object
has been checked in successfully. This operation may not be performed
asynchronously because of the availability of the line. No mechanism
prior to this disclosure exists in the Document Interchange
Architecture to allow the CHECK-IN function to be completed
asynchronously but atomically.

      This article provides a mechanism whereby an enterprise user
can specify whether the CHECK-IN function is to be processed
immediately and the results returned to the user, or a portion of the
CHECK-IN function - RETRIEVE - is to be performed immediately, and
the balance of the operation - FILE and DELETE - are to be processed
at some later time (asynchronously).
