Subject [jira] [Created] (CAMEL-4428) Avoid references from camel api and spi to model
Date Fri, 09 Sep 2011 08:55:09 GMT
Avoid references from camel api and spi to model

                 Key: CAMEL-4428
             Project: Camel
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: camel-core
    Affects Versions: 2.8.0
            Reporter: Christian Schneider
             Fix For: 2.9.0

Currently several interfaces and classes in org.apache.camel and org.apache.camel.spi access
classes from org.apache.camel.model.
As the classes in model are forming the dsl they need access to many other parts of camel.
So this creates a lot of dependency cycles. Most importantly these references make the api
not self contained. 

So I propose to introduce interfaces on model level that contain the methods that access the

For example there should be a ModelCamelContext that extends CamelContext and contains methods
like :
void startRoute(RouteDefinition route) throws Exception;

DefautlCamelContext will already implement ModelCamelContext so it is ready for 3.0.

To achieve maximum compatiblity we should leave the problematic methods in CamelContext but
deprecate them.
For camel 3.0 we will then remvoe these methods.
