Performance Improvement: add index on CorrelationKeyInfo.processInstanceId in your schema

This is based on this case: TS016078647

In our domain, we run a couple of IBM BAM instances on PostreSQL.

Our DB experts figured, that on the IBM BAM schema, an index would be helpful to increase performance. The symptom was, that in our case, the DB query ate a lot of unnecessary CPU resources.

Our request is, to add this index for future versions of the IBM BAM.

The query is:
select correlatio0_.keyId as keyId1_9_, as name2_9_, correlatio0_.processInstanceId as processI3_9_, correlatio0_.OPTLOCK as OPTLOCK4_9_ from CorrelationKeyInfo correlatio0_ where correlatio0_.processInstanceId=$1

The index would need to be created on:

* CorrelationKeyInfo.processInstanceId

    Any fedback on this?

    It would be favorable to have such a small change in v8 of IBM BAM.
