Currently an application programmer can set name-value pairs only one at a time. With APAR PJ45192, you can use the tpf_nameValueLocalGetList and tpf_nameValueLocalSetList functions to pass name-value pairs to different ECBs in either the same or different z/TPF complex. You can use the tpf_nameValueLocalGetList function to save the name-value pairs for an ECB in storage. Then you can pass the name-value pairs in storage to another ECB and use the tpf_nameValueLocalSetList function to set the name-value pairs in that ECB. You can use the tpf_nameValueLocalGetSize function to determine how much storage is required to save the name-value pairs. For added security an option is provided to encrypt the data by using AES128_CBC or AES256_CBC encryption. Encryption is mandatory for name-value pairs that are marked as non-displayable.
