Export/Import from JDBC gateway file location

From JDBC gateway administrative console

Selecting file > export

The export of the Personal Data Sources has a pre-defined path (on server) that is not changeable and indicates the installation path by default.

While the export of Repositories and JDBC Library settings

Does not allow to edit name or location and saves a on local workstation download directory.

So one file is on USS and one on local workstation.

When a user need to import for both Personal Data Sources and Repositories and JDBC Library settings, the panel gives you only the ability to Browse local workstation directories, thus one should transfer from USS to local directory the .wso file...and if the was saved by another user from another workstation, this file should be shared in some ways.

We feel that, in the case of the Data Sources, if I export to one location I should be able to import from the same location, thus avoiding transferring files around and thus avoiding to have to deal with outdated versions of the file.

We would prefer all to be saved on a USS path and we would like to have the possibility to change the Directory where it is saved.
