Access logs available for HTTP embedded listener components

We are looking for enabling access* logs on the HTTP listeners. The information we are looking for should be something like: LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b %D" common where %h, %>s and %D would be the most relevant fields for us. *Note: Similar to the Apache's log files mechanism.

This idea is similar to the above idea which has already been implemented. However, our use case is for embedded listener instead. Understand that the current functionality is only for node wide listener.

    Idea / RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this suggestion, which we agree with in principle, as we appreciate the value in being able to track latency within the HTTP listener component before activity on the actual message flow thread begins. It should be noted that ACEv11 and ACEv12 have moved away from the Tomcat technology and now have a native implementation for both the embedded integration server listener and the node-wide listener. For this reason, it is likely that at the point of implementation, this will not be a "carbon copy" of the Access Log implementation but more likely an equivalent syntax. Status of the enhancement request is updated to Future Consideration status.
