Enable Job Description to be defined on Printer Device Description
When a print writer is started there is no option to specify a job description. There are three supplied job descriptions: QSPLPRTW - used for all local and LAN Writers QSPLAFPW - used for local and LAN writers for IPDS printers configured with AFP as *YES QSPLRMTW - used for remote writers We also use infoprint server.
We use the library list to find page and form definitions (PAGDFN and FORMDF).
If the job description could be specified when the writer is started then the underlying library list can also be specified thereby enabling specific writers to specific functions.
We have multiple environments, development, test/QA and production and multiple versions within that structure.We have objects related to the writer job and mapping programs in a similar library structure.
With the ability to specify a job description to a writer a specific writer can be linked to specific environment.
