Fix IMS Stub DFDL Schema Handling

Improve error handling in IMS transport stub code to support DFDL schema errors.

Currently due to the lack of multiple operation support in an IMS transport stub (enhancement request 132307) a single IMS transport stub cannot properly support DFDL message schema encodings. If the stub receives a message with a different DFDL schema, an error occurs and the stub does not continue with any additional processing, messaging steps/logic, or send any response (no error code, no passthrough, nothing).

Practically, this prevents applying a DFDL schema to any stub that receives mixed messages from a source system - and requires processing the encoded values directly or dispatching the message to a worker stub for processing based on type.

Please see support ticket number attached to this request for related files.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
