Improvement of RDi Commands log and Joblog view

RDi view Commands Log should become more readable by providing means to filter displayed text. Best would be to filter by program call level, and first and second level message text. The same should be provided for the Joblog View.
Also it should be possible to see detailed information about each message contained in the log, like severity, time, date, originating programm, etc.

Use Case:

When using RDi to manage Source files, compile source modules and bind them to programs, commands are executed which are logged in commands view. This view is very hard to read, since it contains raw and mostly unformatted text of all messages contained in the joblog of the executing job. Especially when a compile or bind fails, the log output must be viewed, which is virtually impossible, since it is filled up with lower level messages and repeating second level message text.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
