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.

[MI400] Accessing objects in another job's QTEMP


I think we hit this topic back several releases ago and I'd like to see if
there's anything enhanced in recent history.

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.
