Generate ESQL code in user-defined node projects for private nodes also

ESQL for selected modules in "Binary Build" should be included in generated/.metadata.txt, even, if it is a private interface, that is not used in the scope of the same plugin. Otherwise it is not possible to define a private common function in plug-in A and use it in plug-in B without using it also in plug-in A or making it public.
See corresponding PMR for detailed problem description.

    Idea / RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been held in Uncommitted Candidate status. Since raised in 2012, the product has evolved significantly in this area. With the advent of shared and static libraries it is possible to group ESQL functions and procedures in both a shared and isolated context .. and in ACE with the introduction of a new style of Subflow UDN, we also give users the option of a pseudo private interface for ESQL code. Given these changes we are closing this RFE as delivered, but if you feel there is still an aspect to be addressed then please feel free to raise a new idea against the latest product level making it clear which parts you feel still need attention. Many thanks!

    Thanks for raising this requirement. We have a strategic intent to make it easier to develop nodes/connectors for the Broker, and also to make the sharing of assets easier to accomplish (e.g. V8 applications and libraries). This requirement is consistent with this strategy, and we will investigate at the next available opportunity.
