Subject Re: Camel Azure component
Date Thu, 09 Feb 2017 17:42:28 GMT

I've finally attached a patch for the experts to have a glance, I know I 
can commit and look forward to doing my first Camel commit, but it is my 
first Camel component, so if something obvious is missing - let me know 

It is hard to create a complete functional component from a start but I 
hope it will be incrementally enhanced and improved.
At the moment it covers an Azure Blob Service (with some tweaks likely 
needed later on once we experiment more with it), I'll have a look at 
adding a Queue service support later on.

The most obvious thing which proved hard to solve is to have the tests 
not ignored - I run all the tests which are there against the live 
30-day free account called 'camelazure' but it is a private account 

I spent a lot of time on trying to mock the clients but the Azure SDK 
creators made all of the clients final, so after messing with PowerMock 
I thought it was not worth it as it looks it can add some instability in 
the running tests. The idea of running the integration tests is also on 
the hold given that they do not have a Maven plugin for starting the 
emulator (and no emulator for Linux yet).

So I'd like to go ahead with having these tests disabled and let those 
who are interested start playing with this component and provide the 
feedback until we figure out how to test it in Jenkins...

Claus, what do you think, would you be OK for the commit to go to 
2.19.0-SNAPSHOT in the current form ?

Cheers, Sergey
