Today, I'm posting a simple solution to a problem that I was having. Maybe some of you are having this same problem as well.
Context: A camel route that takes 10 exchanges at once from a queue and sends to a webservice.
Problem: Processing time seems too slow and it's not working like I was expecting.
Reading the code above, we may expect there will be ten threads calling the web service at once, right? But using some logs and running tests, I realized the
camel-http component was creating a sort of internal queue and making only two calls at once, not respecting concurrent processing.
Solution: After a headache, I resolved this problem using the
camel-jetty component at the beginning of the line.
Then, rerunning the tests, I saw that the problem was solved! The application was consuming ten exchanges at once and sending them to the web service at the same time.
That's all. I hope this information may be useful to you.
