Hi to all,
I'm looking for a stable solution (utility, handcrafted REXX, whatever...) for "sharing" variables between different ISPF application Profile Pools.
There are two ISPF-appliactions (ap1 and ap2) using their own profile pools in order to store the specific variable values. I want to use a common customized sub-routine in both application that needs some specific variable values too.
These values are set (for historical reasons) in the profile pool of ap1.
If I call the sub-routine in ap2 the needed variable values are not present.
I don't want to copy the variable-setting-logic into ap2.
There is a site restriction which disallows to use the shared variable pool.
I think of
- coding a REXX to "synchronize" the variables by
-- copying the vars from the profile pool ap1 into the shared pool
-- copying the vars from the shared pool to the profile pool of ap2
-- deleting the vars from the shared pool
a second idea could be to store the variable values in a neutral table, file ...
a third "advanced" idea is to synchronize the two profiles directly via any kind of tool.
Does anybody know such a tool/utility or is there a description of the profile pool dataset available which allows to code such a tool?
