It all depends on how it was created... with binder language or not. Do
you know if that's the case?

If it was created using Binder Language, then you can create a new set of
bindings with a new signature, and the programs that aren't recompiled will
continue to use the old signature.

Example:

First you had:

STRPGMEXP SIGNATURE('v1.0')
EXPORT SYMBOL(proc1)
EXPORT SYMBOL(proc2)
ENDPGMEXP

Now you create proc3 and change your binder language to:

STRPGMEXP SIGNATURE('v2.0')
EXPORT SYMBOL(proc1)
EXPORT SYMBOL(proc2)
EXPORT SYMBOL(proc3)
ENDPGMEXP

STRPGMEXP SIGNATURE('v1.0') PGMLVL(*PRV)
EXPORT SYMBOL(proc1)
EXPORT SYMBOL(proc2)
ENDPGMEXP

Any program compiled will use the new signature, and old ones will use the
old one.

But, if you created your service program using EXPORT(*ALL) then you may
have issues and now would be a good time to learn how to use binder
language.

I'm a newbie to service programs. If I have an existing service program
that is in use, how do I add a new module to it? Do I have to rebuild it
from scratch? If so, does that mean that I have to rebind all current
programs that are using the service program?
