RTWW - Central place to define the java global variables, to impact all the variables in the project

Currently user can define the variables only in the script level / component test level, if we are using RTWW in a large projects, there are scenarios where the variables need to have the scope for the entire project (or) all the scripts that are there in the scripts.
How can we define such global variables and values, so that all the scripts can set / reset based on the global input values.

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, so the idea will be closed. The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.
