Global variables

Global variables are variables created in ZIETrans Toolkit and used by ZIETrans projects. Global variables are stored outside of the macro script in the ZIETrans .hma source file. They are maintained and updated by ZIETrans runtime. There are two types of global variables:
A local global variable is one that is created within a 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 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 selected 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 ZIETrans .hma source file.
