Allow multi-threaded access to the SAP assured delivery store

Update from IBM support (see related Support Case):

I have reviewed the affected code area and can see where the suggested change would be made. However since the benefit is speculative and the issue currently seems resolved I think this would be better handled as an RFE. Particularly the proposed change would be:

Allow multi-threaded access to the SAP assured delivery store

The proposed change would be to remove synchronized locks around access to the MQ based persistent store that is used for assured delivery of SAP messages and replace this with a Thread Local Storage lookup. This would not remove delays in MQ processing however it would potentially allow multiple threads to wait on MQ in parallel (I say potentially because MQ itself may enforce some level of synchronization on calls accessing the same queues).

The testing required to ensure such a change works is fairly complex (we need an assured delivery SAP test which exercises success and failure cases in a highly loaded / performance environment) and given that there is no current business impact I think that this needs to be prioritized against our other in plan deliverables by OM / development.

    RFE Review. Thank you for raising this RFE and apologies for the time period it has been in Submitted Status. The conversation you have had with our service team speaks for itself with this RFE - the change is unfortunately quite complex, but we do agree this would bring benefit to a section of users. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
