We have different engineers who all have a different way of storing general used parts of mappings (i.e. TypeTrees).
The possibility to use a resource var in the filename parts of input and output cards would help us drastically to maintain a central single version of typetrees and coordinate the location of test-input and storage of ouput.
We develop on windows and run on AIX.
On windows we have a mavenized directory tree but that doesn't exist on the AIX server so you always have to overrule in and outputs when testing on AIX.
Wrt to the typetrees : their exact locatrion might differ per developer; using a resource in front of the TT-name resolves that for everyone.
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
As described in the details every dev. has a different setup of repositories.
With resources-functionality this would be solved just like with any other use of resources.
