Query Component (QCMP0100)

There is only one exit for this area and it is intended to allow you to prevent overly generic component searches from being requested (usually accidentally). This is a client-only exit as the underlying service can be legitimately used for generic component searches (e.g. during reporting etc.). This exit is, potentially, passed the following series of fields (REXX variable names). Note that not all clients use all these variables as the query component implementation is different from one client to the next. Also, the data fields have been set up with a view to future requirements so there may be some fields that are not populated by any client. Use the sample exits to display what is being passed from the client of interest.

Sample exits are provided which show how to display the data items passed to QCMP0100. They also show how to stop an overly generic component query request.

The exit can change any of the query criteria values but if a client doesn't actually use one of these variables then changing it in the exit will achieve nothing.

The exits are:
