It is recommended that the system portion of your library list does not include any libraries that exist in an ASP group.

Whenever you run a MIMIX command, MIMIX automatically determines whether the job requires a call to the IBM command Set ASP Group (SETASPGRP). The SETASPGRP command changes the current job's ASP group environment and enables MIMIX to access objects that reside in independent ASP libraries. MIMIX resets the job's ASP group to its initial value as needed before processing is completed.

The SETASPGRP command may modify the library list of the current job. If the library list contains libraries for ASP groups other than those used by the ASP group for which the command was called, the SETASPGRP removes the extra libraries from the library list. This can affect the system and user portions of the library list as well as the current library in the library list.

When a MIMIX command runs the SETASPGRP command during processing, MIMIX resets the user portion of the library list and the current library in the library list to their initial values. The system portion of the library list is not restored to its initial value.

Figure 34, Figure 35, and Figure 36 show how the system portion of the library list is affected on the Display Library List (DSPLIBL) display when the SETASPGRP command is run.

Figure 34.Before a MIMIX command runs. The library list contains three independent ASP libraries, including a library in independent ASP WILLOW in the system portion of the library list.
