Support Batching using Input Nodes such as FileInput, MQInput etc

There was requirement to read messages from a QUEUE on demand. like in my application, I have all failed messages stored in a queue to be republish by triggering an event message. The Queue Q1 is containing around 50 failed messages needs to be resent.
I tried to use MQGET node to get messages but it gets only one message. It is needed to add Get Message Options to fetch all messages without matching CorrelatioId or MessageId

    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request, and apologies for the length of time it has been held in the status of Uncommitted Candidate / Future Consideration status. In reviewing this item, it seems the scheduling aspect of the request is well catered for with current product capabilities ... The Timeout nodes can be configured with a "StartDate" and "StartTime" at which flow propagations should start, using a defined "Interval" between flow propagations, and a specific "Count" of requests as well. The App Connect portfolio also includes a Designer connector named Scheduler (, which can be used in conjunction with ACE Toolkit flows using the Callable Flow technology ... additionally to make this even easier to achieve it is also part of our future technical strategy to make Designer connectors available for use in the ACE Toolkit flow palette. Once the flow has been fired, the PROPAGATE function can be used within a Compute loop to fire an MQGet / FileGet the desired number of times.

    Also of interest may be this slightly different slant on a similar concept:

    Given the product's current capabilities mentioned above, and the additional item APPC-I-168 referenced above, status of this particular RFE is closed.

    Thanks, a good set of use cases for our MQ nodes. We'll evaluate for the next set of MQ features.
