IIB support of JCEKS

With IIBv10 if we configure a keystore/truststore of type JCEKS, at execution time of the flow, we get errors with the CICS Request Node stating that the format of the keystore is invalid.

Below details of the error returned by the CICS transaction gateway:
Caused by: CTG6651E Unable to connect to the Gateway daemon: [address = servername, port = ****] [ Invalid keystore format]

    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request and apologies it has been in Submitted status for a while. We agree that this would enhance the product, yet also note that there are significant technical challenges we would need to overcome ... in order to make this external work, we would either need to pursue CICS CTG client support for JCEKS, or within the IIB code base convert to a JKS format. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
