Adapter Containers: Allow container-specific JVM arguments

Right now, if you want to add custom JVM arguments to adapter containers (say for JVM monitoring), this is done via the Performance Tuning wizard. The wizard provides only one field for custom JVM arguments, which are then applied to all adapter containers on that server.

If JVM monitoring requires that each JVM identify itself uniquely (say with a name such as "Node1AC1"), the Tuning wizard has no provision for this.

Please add some way of setting flags independently for each container, or some way to view and edit the final JVM command for the containers.

What is your industry? Retail
How will this idea be used?

Allowing container-specific JVM flags allows us to use JVM monitoring tools to monitor health and performance of all the Sterling Integrator JVM's running on the server, reduce incidents/crashes, and improve uptime/reliability
