Allow devtoolkit_docker/runtime/ApplicationManagerClient/client.jar to be downloaded directly from the SST

This is an issue for Mac developers after each cloud devtoolkit upgrade. The problem for Mac user is we have to rely on devtoolkit_docker/runtime/ApplicationManagerClient/client.jar to open the configurator. However, every devtoolkit upgrade, the client.jar must be upgraded to open up the cloud level configs which means the local setup has to be redone by installing the new devtoolkit. This will impact Mac developer's performance and will cost a day to setup the local again. Is it possible to include the latest client.jar as a part of the devtoolkit zip, so that Mac developers don't have to setup the entire local every time after the system upgrade?

Help Mac developers to download the latest jar file to open up the config without redoing the local

    Hi Jiandong, on OMoC 2.0 platform, the client.jar can be downloaded separately. However, this feature does not exist on 1.0 platform. As of now, we have not planned to build this feature on 1.0. Your issue will be resolved with upgrade to OMoC 2.0 platform.
