Bill,

Let's see if I have this straight.

For in-house queries you would write a wrapper to perform routing, but
for the canned product you need some form of control not currently
available.

If that's a fair assessment, how about writing your own RUNQRY command
that the canned product gets run through?

Now having said that, to introduce a library above QSYS to do a run
around the OS supplied commands does require a bit of attention to
security measures.

Personally and professionally, I'm going to have to give a two thumbs
down.  The first for an application provider using query as a processing
solution (instead of a -real- program) and the second for not allowing a
user controllable method of management for their selected choice of
solution.  Had they tied each query to a job description, you would at
least be able to tweak the job description to suit your needs.  Better
than nothing IMHO.

Sigh...
