Subject [jira] Created: (CAMEL-3124) polling of feeds in FeedEntryPollingConsumer is broken.
Date Tue, 14 Sep 2010 14:02:40 GMT
polling of feeds in FeedEntryPollingConsumer is broken.

                 Key: CAMEL-3124
             Project: Apache Camel
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: camel-rss
    Affects Versions: 2.4.0
         Environment: ubuntu 10.4
java 6
            Reporter: Ernst Bunders

The FeedEntryPollingConsumer class implements the poll() method for the 'splitEntries' mode
of the RssEndpoint is broken. You can think of two ways that polling feeds could work:
1) A feed is created, then one item is processed, then the delay, then process another item.
This way the feed is kept between calls to poll().
2) A feed is created, then all the items are processed, the feed is cleared, and then the

But the way it presently works:
- A feed is created, one items is processed, and the feed is cleared, then the delay, and
again the feed is created and the next item is cleared.
This is clearly wrong. Feed entries can be missed, because the index of the next item to process
is stored over polls but the list isn't. Also this creates a big network overhead when polling
very active feeds such as twitter search...

This is easy to fix. In the below code:
public void poll() throws Exception {
        Object feed = createFeed();

        while (hasNextEntry()) {
            Object entry = list.get(entryIndex--);

            boolean valid = true;
            if (entryFilter != null) {
                valid = entryFilter.isValidEntry(endpoint, feed, entry);
            if (valid) {
                Exchange exchange = endpoint.createExchange(feed, entry);
                // return and wait for the next poll to continue from last time (this consumer
is stateful)

The return (at line 56 of org.apache.camel.component.feed.FeedEntryPollingConsumer) should
be deleted.
