    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this suggestion. In general we would like to encourage users to move away from compiled message flow formats in the BAR file. Source artifact deployments are more flexible in the event you wish to recover build time artifacts from runtime systems, and it can also save on processing required to compile the artifact into the BAR and then interpret the compiled artifact at deployment time. That said, we appreciate that a minority of our users who have chosen not to move away from .cmf and are currently moving up to v12 are hitting this published limitation of the product for the first time. We would like to help, and we are updating the status of this enhancement request to "In development".
