Extend the WMB Node API to allow the creation of Monitoring Events

Creating new message flows during the instantiation of a pattern is a very nice feature. However, right now it is not possible to add monitoring events to a node using the WMB Node API.
There are already dummy methods defined (addMonitorEvent, getMonitoringEvents, removeMonitorEvent, setMonitorEvents) which I was told are unimplemented yet and therefore marked as protected.
I would strongly suggest to implement these methods to handle monitoring events as well.

    RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been in the status of Uncommitted Candidate. Despite not being able to justify the business prioritization of this feature request up to now, and the likely rather limited appeal, we still see value in the enhancement and have seen use cases that would have been assisted with this feature. Given these aspects we will continue to monitor and maintain the status as Uncommitted Candidate.

    Product - IBM Integration Bus (WebSphere Message Broker) - IIB

    For recording keeping, the previous attributes were:

    Thanks for raising this requirement. As you correctly identify, there is no API-driven way of creating and manipulating monitoring events today, but being able to do this is highly desirable, and consistent with the product's strategy of being able to do all development and operational tasks through programming interfaces.
