MQCONNX not able to use alternative SCO

As detailed in Case number: TS004710317

Trying to develop a multi-threaded highly concurrent MQ client application connecting to many hundreds of qmgrs in a short space a time, once an MQCONNX is established to 1 qmgr, using an SCO initialized with one key store, any subsequent qmgr connections established with a new MQCONNX, reuse the first SCO initalized and not any new SCO for the new connection.

This combined with having dedicated and separate client keystores for independent and unrelated qmgrs means an entirely dedicated process is required per connection, which makes highly concurrent, high throughput threaded clients in a resource limited environment - an impossibility.

    We hope to deliver a solution to this in a future version of MQ
