I switched to using getenv() and putenv() and it's working now. Go figure. :)

Thanks guys!

I don't know why you might be having problems with reading a value you set - could be a multitude of things - but like Scott, I would recommend the putenv() and getenv() APIs.

QSH CMD('set > /tmp/my-set.txt')

And

QSH CMD('env > /tmp/my-env.txt')

Might reveal something interesting.  (?)

I've been playing around with the envinronment variable APIs to set
the CLASSPATH for java.

At first I started using QtmhPutEnv and QtmhGetEnv, and it worked
fine.  But, I realized to use these you'd need to have The HTTP server
installed.

So I did some searching and I found Bob Cozzi's examples for
Qp0zPutEnv and Qp0zGetEnv.

At first the the get wasn't working and I found if I but X'00' after
the classpath name to retrieve, then it worked.

The put was working fine, just like the Qtmh API.  A WRKENVVAR command
showed this.

But, I now find that with identical CLASSPATH environment variables,
when set using the Qp0z APIs, it's like the environment variable
doesn't even exist.  It can't find the java objects to use and I get
class not found errors when running the same java methods.

If I switch back to using the Qtmh APIs (and sign off and sign back
on), it works slick.  I've double checked the class path value and
everything is identical...

Any ideas?
