Before creating a custom trigger using function IsEndOfMonth, you need to have build installed in the
server where JSCAPE MFT Server is running.

For example, In order to check whether 31st August 2018 falls by end of month, the parameters should be passed as IsEndOfMonth(2018,08,31)
This method signature is used to check whether the current day falls by end of month. In order to make this method to function need to pass the system date as parameter.System date can be retrieved using CurrentDate() Method
