WMB 8 Record and Replay - Non MQ Destinations

I am using WMB and am trying to implement record and replay functionality for a client to log incoming and outgoing messages processed by different message flows. I have message flows having MQInput, FileInput, HTTPInput and SOAPInput nodes as starting point.

I am able to record all events fine. But I see that replay can currently be done only to MQ destinations. This is a limitation since I cannot replay the original files to input directories for the flows or to the URL to which the HTTP or SOAP nodes are listening to.

Please consider incorporating this useful feature into the product.

    RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been in the status of Under Consideration. Based on the feedback we receive, the vast majority of our user base are very comfortable using a persistent asynchronous messaging protocol to drive the replay of data, however we acknowledge that having the ability to choose to convert the recorded data back into other on-wire protocols would bring more flexibility to the product. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
