Definitely a feature you should be using. The advantages far outweigh the
disadvantages, especially when you are journaling the files anyway.

But you should be aware that CC requires a little bit more care in the
programming. When an RPG program issues a COMIT, the commit applies to the Job (
for RPG III ) or to the Activation Group ( for RPG IV ). Therefore, care needs 
be taken to ensure that a program does not accidently issue a COMIT for another
program in the Job/Group.
