A library is essentially only a list of the objects it contains. I expect that the only time I'd get a lock on a library is if I'm doing something with it directly, like being in a library list or VPYLIB kind of thing. I even tried DSPLIB and WRKLIB - once the list of objects was displayed for DSPLIB, there was no lock on the library. WRKLIB just listed the library name at first, no lock then, either.

My guess is that command is working correctly. No locks on the library
itself. Why would a lock on an object in a library also lock the library?
Or, I am wondering, if there might be a specific type of lock on the
library, such as SHRRD that might be related to an open file in the library.

I have a utility that checks if an app is use by doing a WRKOBJLCK
OBJ(XXX) OBJTYPE(*LIB).

I recently had this fail.
One app addlible XXX.
Opens files in XXX
Execute a process, finish.
Rmvlible XXX.

WRKOBJLCK OBJ(XXX) OBJTYPE(*LIB) shows no locks.
But within the XXX library, there were object locks remaining.

Never realized you could have object locks and the library containing the
objects is no longer is the library list.

Searching for better method to determine object locks since WRKOBJLCK
OBJ(XXX) OBJTYPE(*LIB) is no longer valid.

Thank You
