GlobalContainer x Global Variable Java Section



My requirement: I have a variable that'll be read from message header with DynamicConfiguration and will be used in several UDFs in a message mapping.

Are there any problems in using either GlobalContainer object or Global Variable in Message Mapping Java Section for storing/recovering this variable?

And in the case I use Java Sections, suppose I have the following:

Global Variables

String param = null;

Initialization Section

param = "value";

Then, what do I need to use in Clean-up Section? Should I give it a null value or an empty string value? I mean, I can't understand the necessity of this section, since garbage collector would handle that variable (and supposing it will be valid only during this message mapping thread).

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
