1 - I would NOT add all these third party products to your system library
list. If your 'upgrade' instructions ever do something drastic like have
you delete the library and reinstall it the process won't be able to be
completed until you can get a lock on the library from ALL jobs.
2 - Let's say DBU using a command called FIXFILE. And it is in a library
called DBU. If they put a command in QSYS or QUSRSYS then that command
should be a "proxy" command only (see CRTPRXCMD). That proxy command
should point to the real command in the DBU library. And FIXFILE in the
DBU library could then have a "product library" associated with it.
Want an easy way to see a product library in use? Then simply enter in
the command STRPDM. At the command line at that menu type in DSPLIBL and
you will see QPDA listed as such:
As soon as you F3 out of the STRPDM command it goes away.
As you can see, product libraries appear below the QSYSLIBL but above any
QUSRLIBL and even your 'current' library.
