Gateway for Message Bus (XML) should support replication of secondary tables

The gateway and probe for message bus is getting more and more important on all customer sites to receive alerts and to transfer ObjectServer data to external customer systems.

Most customer implementations contain secondary tables which hold different specific data for special customer use cases.

Currently the gateway for message bus doesn't support replication of such secondary tables. The gateway should support this option as e.g. the gateway for JDBC (Gate.ResyncTables) or the Java Socket Gateway. It's hard to explain to customers that one gateway is supporting replication of secondary tables and another gateway is not.

To be able to integrate different customer systems via the gateway for message bus, this functionality is highly required.
Replication of secondary tables should be a default feature which is supported of all gateways!

    I don't understand why the XML gateway is not capable of that in the first place. JDBC gateway is able to do that for years and the only difference in my opinion is the destination interface. The interface to the object server should be the same. MAybe just copy the code? This feature is highly in demand.
