When you change a service program, you _could_ (but shouldn't) reclaim the activation group. I say "shouldn't" because reclaiming activation groups can sometimes cause strange problems if other activation groups have hooks into the reclaimed one.

Following the simple rule, giving a PGM a named activationgroup PGM_Name and the SRVPGM ACTGRP(*CALLER), RCLACTGRP PGM_Name works as expected. "Strange effects" will occur under commitment controll, caused by the idiotic default OPTION(*normal) of the command RCLACTGRP. This will send an automatic commit, commiting an open transaction.
