Information to externalize file IO

I need to externalize file IO. Where can I find a good source to obtain information to do so within a *SRVPGM?

There is not a source that will discuss this topic as far as manuals are concerned. If your applications have all of the files to be used in the service programs opened with SHARE(*YES) and the files are declared in the service program, I would assume that it would work. I would also assume that if any service program needed to be changed during use, the new copy of the module would require all jobs using the service program to exit all programs that have previously used the service program for the changes to take effect.
