Note also that OS/400 and i5/OS (IBM i) has provided the ability to have libraries on the library list without locking them for many years now, since V5R1 ... when the (then new) system value QLIBLCKLVL was introduced.

Issue DSPSYSVAL QLIBLCKLVL and see what your system is set to... also you can press F1=Help and read about that system value.

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.

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Searching for better method to determine object locks since WRKOBJLCK OBJ(XXX) OBJTYPE(*LIB) is no longer valid.
