RPG A calls RPG B, passing pointer to CLOB. RPG B receives pointer, and uses it as base for CLOB there. Both compile. Both execute with no bombs. But based CLOB in RPG B does not reflect data in CLOB in RPG A.
Program A creates a CLOB and populates it with 2mb of JSON data. Program A calls Program B which is supposed to send the CLOB data from Program A via a POST REST service or MQ msg. We use two programs to adhere to a SoC (separation of concerns) and to place our logic in multi-tiers, keeping things modular. But this will not work. We are forced to put the CLOB in an SQL VARIABLE and Program B reads it from there. This works but is not the cleanest way.
