We have a system environment that is considerably slower that the other, but we use the same HATS project to access both systems. We need the screen timeout to work for both systems. the systems use TN3270e with contention resolution enabled. My solution would be to specify a value large enough to enable the slowest system to work. There are some who believe that specifying the large value, e.g. 15000, would cause the faster system to run slower. I ensured them that would not happen with contention resolution enabled. Is it possible to read a value from a properties file and use the value to dynamically change the screen timeout property in a macro?
However, I've been asked if there is a way that we could read this value from a properties file when the user starts the application and have that value used. The idea being that they would use a smaller value for the faster system. I've searched and cannot find such a capability, unless I could use a macro variable for that specification. Is this allowed? I know I can use a macro variable for other things, like erow, but will it work with the timeout value?
