Segregate PR and PP JMS properties instead of overloading them into one and forcing 2 copies of MountFiles

If embedded JMS is used, the Partner Repository and Partner Provisioner use different values in the same property "enable_jms_features" in Setup.cfg file. This makes it imperative to create two distinct copies of the entire MountFiles directory to make this one parameter distinct for Partner Provisioner. Instead, it would be a good design to have the PR and PP look up distinct parameters in Setup.cfg which would make one copy of MountFiles work. This will then be a viable option for embedded JMS as well as WSMQ.

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
How will this idea be used?

This will make the deployment foot print smaller and more manageable. The customer does not have to install two copies of the same MountFiles with one distinct parameter that will be different. It will also avoid explaining to the customer why this should be done for keeping one property value distinct for sake of one container.

    his only affects embedded JMS which we are not recommending. It would be a nice to have option, but it is not something that we expect to be able to address within the medium term (next two years).
