Allow Multiple debugger ports on ACE Integration Server

We are encountering an issue on our DEV Environment which is common for all the developers. Integration Server is enabled with jvmDebugPort for developers to do debugging using breakpoint through ACE Toolkit. As we have multiple ACE developers we are facing problems while more than 1 developer running the debugging, as according to ACE Product behaviour it allows only 1 debugger port to be configured due to which developers has to wait until the other developers completes the debugging. This causing delay in the development troubleshooting and resulting these delays to move to next environment. Having multiple jvmDebugPort on ACE Integration may allow multiple ACE developers to run the debugging on ACE v12.

    Idea Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request. After careful consideration, unfortunately on this occasion we will not be pursuing this idea further at this time. Significant architectural and development effort has gone into isolating integration server processes from the integration node, and enabling them to be lightweight with unused internal components (resource managers) switch off-able. As a result, the server process can easily be run locally on a developer's workstation (which is also free for development purposes under our licensing terms) and so a model of having one server for each developer is an easy good practice to follow. Significant configuration is also held at the server level, so we feel this is the right level of sharing / isolation in the product hierarchy. As a result we do not feel it is a business imperative to encourage multiple developers to be able to maintain separate debug sessions against a single integration server, so we will not be pursuing this idea at the moment.
