Subject Re: Asynchronous Routing Engine - Status
Date Wed, 07 Jul 2010 08:21:11 GMT

camel-netty producer is now async as well.

However I wonder if NettyConsumer should be async as well?

We do have the Channel in which a reply should be send back to, which
allows us to use it from the async callback.
Which should allow the NettyConsumer thread to return and let Netty
reuse that thread to service new requests.

I am just wondering if keeping that Channel around longer than the
original request thread would cause any issues?

I was looking for continuations support in Netty but there is no such
thing currently. This would obviously make it a first class feature in
and make me more comfortable to let the continuations handle returning
the reply when the async routing is done.
