Can COBOL EXTERNAL Data be used in online CICS module ?

Example:

Code:

01  AABP1DAL-CALL-POINTERS EXTERNAL.                     
    05  AABP1DAL-DDAL-PNTR                     POINTER. 
    05  AABP1DAL-RTRN-PNTR                     POINTER. 
    05  AABP1DAL-RCRD-PNTR                     POINTER.

Yes, but the EXTERNAL WS definitions must be identical in all related programs and are only addressable within the same run unit (IE: Transaction).

Would it make more sense to use the COMMAREA for this purpose?
