Hi Don,

We also have several environments. Some of our developers use multiple connections, but most use a command to set Library Lists. It's possible that your menu system uses a command/program to set the library list. You should be able to use those same commands in RDi.

Here's a link to an RFE that will allow users to create/maintain/and use Library List objects within RDi. Our next release will have a Library List View, and plan in the future to allow users to maintain lists and use them. Please vote on this RFE so we know how important this enhancement is to the community.

Thanks for helping make RDi better!

Sorry I am not offering a solution.

Library list processing in RDi is one of the main reasons I don't us all the features and mostly compile from green screen.

We administer about 30 different environments and each environment has many applications and each of these require a specific library list.

In green screen we just use the menu manager to go to the respective environment and application - library list set now just do what is needed.

And we are commonly chopping and changing between environments all day long.

I don't want 30 separate connections to servers.

I wish there was a simple solution.


My 2 cents

Sent by: "WDSCI-L" <wdsci-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>



Hi,

Although I use RDi for a couple of years, I did not yet notice the following problem before. But now I run into a problem when running a certain unit test. I always thought that the libraries that I specify at "Connection - Subsystem - Objects Tab - Library list" are used for building the library list when establishing a connection to a remote system.

But apparently that is wrong, since in fact the libraries are added to the initial library list of my user profile. For example:

The initial library list of my user profile is:

QSYS2924
UBMSYS
QSYS
QSYS2
QHLPSYS
QUSRSYS
RADDATZ400
QTEMP
QGPL
RZ.FOO
RZ.BAR

The library list of the RSE connection is:

LIBHTTP139

Now, when the connection is made, the library list of the connection is:

QSYS2924
UBMSYS
QSYS
QSYS2
QHLPSYS
QUSRSYS
RADDATZ400
QTEMP
QGPL
RZ.FOO
RZ.BAR
LIBHTTP139

This behavior makes it difficult to specify the proper library list for a connection. Sadly I cannot use "CHGLIBL *NONE" as the "Initial command" of the connection to clear the library list before, because the initial command is execute after the library list was built.

Of course I can fix the library list when I specify the libraries with "library position" *FIRST in reverse order. That is not nice and hard to read, but at last it works.

How do you specify the library list of your RSE connections to get the right list?

Things would be so easy if there was a checkbox "Replace initial library list" on the properties dialog of the RSE connection.

Regards,

Thomas.
