Programs that use customized versions of IBM-supplied commands

Release to release considerations for programs that use customized version of IBM-supplied commands

Some IBM® i functions that use IBM-supplied control language (CL) commands that are not library-qualified in this release might be changed in a future release to specify a specific library, *NLVLIBL or *SYSTEM, for the library qualifier.

Applications that depend on using their own version of commands instead of the IBM-supplied commands might not work as they had on earlier releases. These applications should be changed to use the retrieve command exit point (QIBM_QCA_RTV_COMMAND) or the change command exit point (QIBM_QCA_CHG_COMMAND) that allows your exit program to get control and possibly change the command that is used.
