Cloned message flow application across execution group

message flows that leverage aggregate control/request/reply nodes in WMB 7.x and beyond cannot scale across EGs within the same broker unless changes are made to the aggregate reply node to differentiate reply node "name" per EG.

    RFE Review. Although the product has evolved to allow independent integration servers running in containers to use a remote default queue manager for the purpose of defining the queues used by aggregation nodes, we still have not allowed users to be able to scale multiple servers to use the same queue so that servers can pick up one another's in-flight aggregations. So - despite being open for several years now (and with relatively meagre community votes), there remains value in this use case especially in more modern container based architecture topologies. We will continue to monitor and status is maintained as Uncommitted Candidate.

    Thanks for raising this requirement. We'd like to be able to process aggregations across multiple execution groups in time, to allow for the scaling scenarios you mention. In the mean time, do take a look at the embedded cache support in MB 8001, which allows you to share transient/cached state across multiple execution groups and brokers. The aggregation nodes do not currently take advantage of this, but we would like them to. Regards
