Assume I have a string(ex:abcdefg), it will be read by an online program.
Now I want to hide this string, I mean nobody can browse it.
I tyied three methods, which one is the best? (Normally what will you do?)
1. I tyied TDQ, but it just can be read once, and need close/open to reread it, or I will get a QZERO error.
2. Then I tyied TSQ, yes, it can be read repeatedly. But everybody can use CEBR to browse it...
3. And CWA, it works well. But is it possible somebody write a pgm to get data from CWA on purpose, how to protect it?
there is no way to hide the string from other programmers (that are resoucefull enough to look for it), unless you
put it in a vsam file with password protection
you might try putting the string in a table, and letting your systems
people racf' protect it from other people loading the table.
