No, a program object can’t be journaled. There would no sense in doing it because there is no data to record in a journal. — Tom
Objects including files can be audited. This will provide a history of object changes.

“Auditing” is not “journaling”. You can’t start journaling a program. You can start auditing a program with CHGOBJAUD.
Note, however, that the system audit journal (QAUDJRN) is where audit entries are stored; so there can be some confusion between “auditing” and “journaling”. The two processes create very different kinds of entries.
Hello Tom, If i use this ex :[CHGOBJAUD OBJ(MVXCOBJ/ACLCTAX) OBJTYPE(*PGM) OBJAUD(*CHANGE) ] cmd to audit a program how could i retrive the information on changes made to that particular object.-Rajesh
You always retrieve entries from a journal the same way (or ways, if you use different techniques for different reasons). It doesn’t matter if events are retrieved from the system audit journal or a database journal or an accounting journal or any object of type *JRN. If you want to display entries from a journal, use the DSPJRN command. Specify whatever parameter values that you need. — Tom
