mqsicreatebar on linux environment needs Xvfb installed

I am using IBM Integration Bus V10 with Toolkit on Linux environment.
mqsicreatebar command requires Xvfb display installed to work on Linux environment.
I am doing continuous integration deployment using mqsicreatebar command on Linux server.
Since I am using mqsicreatebar command in non interactive mode, I would expect the command to work without Xvfb. This is something that needs to be fixed.

    Idea / RFE Review. Further to the last comment on this RFE, ACEv12 has now provided the "ibmint package" and "ibmint deploy" commands which meet this use case. Status of the idea is updated to Delivered.

    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this request for enhancement and apologies it has been in Submitted status for so long. The mqsicreatebar command runs Eclipse in headless mode, so the strong suspicion is that this has led to the behaviour observed. We absolutely agree that offering the capability to more easily create BARs on non-Eclipse platforms would be a great enhancement for the product. We are planning on looking into this, including the amalgamation of mqsibar, mqsicreatebar and mqsipackagebar as part of a future release. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
