Keyword end


The end attribute provides a guideline to the scheduler when the task should end. It will never end later, but it may end earlier when allocated resources are not available that long. When an end date is provided for a container task, it will be passed down to ALAP tasks that don't have a well defined end criteria.

Setting an end date will implicitly set the scheduling policy for this task to ALAP.
