Global variables

Global variables are variables created in HCL ZIETrans Toolkit and used by HCL ZIETrans projects. Global variables are stored outside of the macro script. They are maintained and updated by HCL ZIETrans runtime. There are two types of global variables:
A local global variable is one that is created within an HCL ZIETrans project, and is only visible to the project.
A shared global variable is one that is visible to and can be used by all the HCL ZIETrans Web applications in an .ear file.
Whether a global variable is considered local or shared depends on whether the shared check box in the GUI is checked when the global variable is created, or whether the value of the shared attribute of a set, prompt, or extract tag is specified as yes or no in the HCL ZIETrans .hma source file.
