Routine implementation to check the existence of CF Structure to be used when defining or changing a shared queue.

When defining or changing a shared queue, it is necessary to inform the name of CF Structure to be used. On some occasions there were problems when the application tried to open this queue because the CF structure does not exist. This problem occurs due to a typo when informing the structure name or if the person responsible did not create the definition of the CF structure for MQ. It makes possible the correction of errors in advance and prevents the occurrence of errors only when the application tries to use the Shared queue.

    Cross-checking between object attributes at definition time is not something that MQ generally does, to allow objects to be defined with arbitrary ordering, so implementing this would be against the usual pattern. As a result we are declining this Idea.
