14.2.4 Emulation of the *LDA Data Area

The IBM i *LDA (Local Data Area) is supported.

The use of the IBM i *LDA type of data area in new applications is not recommended. This feature is provided for support of existing applications and is not considered to be a "strategic" facility.

By its nature, the LDA is unique to every job and thus does not have to be enrolled in the data area definition table LX_DTA.
