Can't you handle all the state info you'd need by passing it a pointer back
to it in the stateInfo subfield?

The only issue I see at this time (other than having to do a handler for
each logical) is that if PGMA calls PGMB and both use the handler, and I
don't need to hit the web service...then I might have to pay for extra I/Os
to reposition the local table.

I suppose a bound by copy handler wouldn't have that problem. Didn't
realize that was a possibility.

And if I were mapping to a DB2 table and needed to do read next type
operations that would matter to me - but I'm having trouble seeing why it
matters when I'm changing the UPDATE in the RPG to and SQL update on
another system. Normally doing that I'd be using some kind of
handle/cursor/whatever to keep track of the connection anyway and if that
is stored in the state info then I'm golden.

Why can't you use Service Programs Dieter? All my OA handlers are
re-entrant (unless I code them not to be) and I can't see why it would be
any different having them bound.

Two programms in the same ACTGRP share one activation of a SRVPGM,
regardless if you let it run in *CALLER or in a named ACTGRP, but they
might
have two open data pathes to the same file. Binding modules by copy, they
would have two actiavtions of the same module.
