Map - CustomJavaTransformation - SharedLibrary

Issue: Application level map '' can not reference Shared Library level Java file ''

From IIB infocenter documentation -
"When the map uses Java code available in a shared library, you
must create the map in the shared library project where the Java code is available. "

    Idea / RFE Review. Given that applications, libraries and shared libraries have now been a part of the product for several major engineering releases, the vast majority of our users have now adopted these constructs for achieving their desired level of sharing and isolation for their artifacts deployed to an integration server. Given this adoption level, the single vote received for this suggestion, and the approach outlined in the previous comment whereby shared library references can be used to refer from a map to a common piece of Java, we have decided to close this suggestion.

    Thanks for raising this RFE. We agree this would make a good enhancement to the product - adding specific configuration information in the map to address a project scope which contains java methods that a user wants to refer to in their mapping. Meanwhile, it should be possible to workaround this restriction using a hierarchy of separate shared libraries to separate the map from the java. If you place the map in a shared library, and another map in a different shared library, you should be able to refer to a common shared library of java methods from both of these libraries. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
