Availability of MQ options to have 'MQ GET' Retries enabled similar to 'MQ Connection Resilience' configurations including no of retries and retry interval

This option of having 'MQ GET Retries' configured in IBM Rational Integration Tester and having the corresponding virtual service(stub) deployed on RTVS, will help in cases where virtual service(stub) is 'BROKEN' due to 'MQ GET' disabled accidentally(MQ issues) or intentionally(Negative testing) and ability to restore to its original 'RUNNING' status automatically without manual intervention as soon the 'MQ GET' is enabled. Currently, as there is no option of 'MQ GET Retries' configuration, stubs need to be manually restarted as soon as the MQ GET is enabled. Else, stub will continue to be in 'BROKEN' state. So, its good to have this 'MQ GET Retry configuration' similar to 'MQ connection resilience' configuration where user can specify the number of retries and interval of retries(1 sec to infinite) This will be helpful for all teams dealing with MQ based testing or virtual services.
