Enhancement of mqsiextractcomponents command to preserve the complete bar file path while performing migration from IIB to ACE

currently while we perform in place migration by using mqsiextractcomponents mqsi command from IIB to ACE, it doesn't preserve neither the complete bar file path nor bar file name. This is very much required in order to understand which bar has been deployed previously and address any issues occur during the migration .

    Idea Review. Thank you for taking the time to submit this idea for enhancement. As noted on the case which was raised on this topic, we now have the capacity within ACEv12 to store the BAR file path (and deploy time) for BAR file deployments which are executed within v12. Given this we have the core capability on which to build the enhancement requested which forward ports the same information from IIBv10 when mqsiextractcomponents is utilised. Although we are not able to *commit* a delivery vehicle / timeframe publically for this work, we do plan on taking on this request and to include it in a future v12 mod release so we are updating the status of the idea to reflect this.
