|For transactions that are . . .||The owner is . . .|

The resources are obtained at the time of the application request.
|Resources are released . . .||When they are associated with . . .|
|explicitly by the application||ordinary transactions.|
|implicitly at the end of the transaction||non-terminal-related transactions.|
|at the end of the conversation||terminal-related transactions.|
