I agree,  the rtvobjd qsys/qsys *lib syslvl method is not 
perfect....but it is easy, and currently does work quite well.

If you can live with the fact that it might break in the future, it is 
a good way to go.  BTW, anything we do might break in the future. 
 Like 2 digit years.

The problem with the TAA Tool approach is that not everybody has it. 
 So that leaves the API solution.  I would say if you can not live 
with the rtvobjd method, then the API is the only way to go.

Hi,

Yes, this solution will work, however IBM points out that they have 
the
option of potentially shipping a new release by PTF (although they 
have
never done it, it has been planned for), and in this case, this would 
fail.

There's a TAA Tool, RTVRELID, or you can always code to the QSZRTVPR 
API if
you have masochistic tenancies.
