Merging of tables for physical partitioned databases to a single Kafka topic

We have data in IMS which is divided in multiple partitions and sored in different physical databases. So multiple tables are created like <table_1>,<table_2>,..........,<table_20> for the same dataset using CDA mapping tool. We want to merge all these tables and load the data to one Kafka topic <table>.

Based on our discussion with IBM LAB Services team, we were provided with custom KCOP java file alongwith .class files which we placed on Kafka apply agent server. We would like to get this new KCOP feature included in the product and available in the new release.
