Isolated esql environment (i.e. jar ) for testing purposes

System: Product Broker
Actor: User needing new feature

Description: Our team uses Message Broker as ESB Solution.
In order to improve the developement speed as well as the software quality we need an isolated esql environment. The best would be the java implementation, that will allow us including the esql tests in our countinous integration environment.

    RFE Review. ACEv12 introduced an entire unit testing framework which now enables the flow developer to easily write and execute JUnit testing for isolated parts of a message flow such as a single Compute node's ESQL. Status of the idea suggestion is updated to Delivered.

    RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been in the status of Under Consideration. We agree that this suggestion would enhance the product. When implemented, it is likely that this would be tackled as part of a wider remit in the area of unit testing improvements. This is an area of capability we improved in both IIBv10 and ACEv11, with the provision of the test data capture view in the Toolkit and the associated administrative REST API, but is also something we plan to further improve in future. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
