At this moment the IBM MQSC adapter has a -CD option for channel definition but there is no way to specify a CCDT file for secure connections

We use WTX with launcher on AIX . Until now, with 1 CCDT we only had to set the environment variables MQCHLLIB, MQCHLTAB, MQSSLKEYR to point to a single CCDT-file. These envrionment variables are set before WTX is started and so every map of every system runs with the same CCDT file.           

For a new  project we need to be able to connect to 16 different destinations (IP + port) with encryption (specify things like SSLCIPH,SSLPEER,... ). As every destination uses the same client connection channel we have to define 16 different CCDT-files. But there is no easy way with WTX + launcher to specify 2 or more different CCDT-files.

The only thing that comes close, the -CD parameter of the MQSC-adapter which does not support CCDT-files.

This idea : would it be possible to add support for CCDT-files in the MQSC-adapter in the existing -CD option or with a new option. The goal would be to be able to use 2 or more secure MQ connections via MQ client + CCDT in different cards of a single map.
