APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Net.Data scripts may specify *LOCAL or the local DB name and if
*LOCAL is specified Net.Data changes that to local DB name on
the SQLConnect. NetData is unable to access file in iASP.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE67439 :
-----------------------------
The Net.Data CGI program DB2WWW resides on an iASP.  Before
Net.Data is called, the HTTP server performs a Set ASP Group
(SETASPGRP) command to bring files on the iASP to the local
namespace. However,when Net.Data is called and the DATABASE
Net.Data variable is set to *LOCAL, Net.Data maps this to the
*LOCAL DB name alias, which results in a TCP/IP connection being
established to the local DB when connecting to the DB server as
if it was a remote DB.  Net.Data needs to specify *LOCAL when
connecting to the DB server to ensure that it is connecting to
the local DB manager, which allows files on the iASP and files
in the system ASP to be resolved.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE67439 :
--------------------------------
None.
