In V5R3 the Open List of Objects (QGYOLOBJ) API was enhanced to allow the list to be the QTEMP of another job. This API can be found in the Object category of System APIs in the V5R3 Information Center. In V5R4 a new Call Job Interrupt Program (QWCJBITP) API is also available. This API allows you to have a user exit program run in the initial thread of another job. The program could, among other things, examine the contents of the other jobs QTEMP library and generate a report, write the results to a shared resource such as a file or user space, etc. The API can be found in the Work Management category of system APIs in the V5R4 Information Center.

The current need is to be able to catalog name, type and size of objects in other job's QTEMP for disk and object use analysis. I don't need to necesarily open or assign the objects a lock state, but I do need to be able to get thier attributes for systems analysis use. I'm not aware of an API that allows retrieval of this from a supported IBM side, and if it's not there, it probably should be. And since the list has been quiet for too long I thought I'd drop this out there to see if anyone's got a nice way to skin this cat...prefereably sans system state pgms...but I'm not excluding anything at this point.
