If you SAV/RST, many of these things will be handled correctly. For example, if the objects exist that will handle a stored procedure - if they exist when you CREATE PROCEDURE, the procedure information gets put into the program object, so that, when it is restored, the procedure is created automatically. I still don't completely trust this, since the program doesn't need to exist when you create the procedure or function, but it might help.

Lots more information is in the redbook SG24-6503 on Stored Procedures, Triggers, and User-Defined Functions.

The Object Relational Support redbook SG24-5409 may also have some information about save/restore.

There've been presentations on this kind of thing at COMMON and at the RPG/DB2 Summit conferences.

Suppose I want to distribute it, as part of a product.

Is it enough to send the *SRVPGM to the customer box? Or do I have to
CREATE FUNCTION there?

And what about an ILE RPG SRVPGM that I've registered as a UDF, using
"LANGUAGE RPGLE" and "EXTERNAL NAME" clauses on a CREATE FUNCTION?
