Subject [jira] [Created] (CAMEL-4704) Allow type converters to be specified as Spring beans
Date Wed, 23 Nov 2011 02:50:39 GMT
Allow type converters to be specified as Spring beans
-----------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CAMEL-4704
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CAMEL-4704
             Project: Camel
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: camel-core
    Affects Versions: 2.8.2
            Reporter: Daniel Gredler
            Priority: Minor


There are many Camel configuration elements that are auto-discovered when they are configured
as Spring beans (Tracer, InterceptStrategy, EventNotifier, PlatformTransactionManager, etc):

http://camel.apache.org/advanced-configuration-of-camelcontext-using-spring.html

However, instances of TypeConverter are not auto-discovered based on the Spring configuration
(there is a different auto-discovery mechanism):

http://camel.apache.org/type-converter.html

A related JIRA ticket (requesting custom XML syntax) was marked "won't fix": CAMEL-1685.

I agree that the extra XML tag is not necessary. However, the omission of Spring bean auto-discovery
seems to violate the principle of least surprise -- as a new Camel user, knowing that Camel
auto-discovers Spring beans for other configuration elements, I was surprised to find that
Camel didn't find my TypeConverter Spring bean.
