The restart-enabled Domain Manager provides a way to create an adapter that is robust in the face of communication problems with the Domain Manager.

Normally, errors encountered during the transmission of an operation to the Domain Manager result in an exception to the rule set. This exception normally terminates the adapter. With a restart-enabled Domain Manager, however, the exception is treated as a non-fatal error and it does not automatically terminate the parser. Once the Domain Manager connection is re-established, operations no longer result in exceptions but begin working properly again.
