IIB / WMB - allow ESQL to access user defined configurable services

WMB 7 and above provide a feature to store user defined configurable services definitions in the broker.

This feature is very useful for message flow applications to hold static reference information.

However User defined configurable service values can only be accessed from Java (e.g. in a JCN).

Please add a feature to ESQL to allow the same values to be directly accessed from standard compute nodes.

Please add this feature (in a fixpack release) to IIB v9 (and later) and if possible to all currently supported versions of websphere message broker.

    Hi, I created a UserDefined configurable service for T24Outbound adapter and I would like to check on where I can define my UserDefined configurable service in T24Outbound properties. Thanks!

    I agree with AlexeyGrishin , I have had a couple of cases where I had to write java and then call the java from ESQL. IBM Development comment mentions a level of feature parity between Java and ESQL, so this is a good one to start with ( don't need to do it all at once ! ).

    The lack of this functionality prevent us to use "User Defined Configurable Services". It is really handy, but then attempt to use it java is spoils everything. I'd like to push this feature.

    Good requirement, thanks for raising. We'd like to get to an appropriate level of feature parity between Java and ESQL, and access to user-defined configurable services would be great to have as part of this effort.
