--The other question I would have is why anyone would write a service program these days using file I/O instead of SQL.

With file I/O I get more control over the file locks. When I close a file, its closed.


SQL doesn't always close the files when you run a close cursor.
So, short of destroying active service program, killing the activation group, or other extreme methods, that SQL service program is going to hold onto file locks.
