             Summary: camel-castor does not work in apache service mix modules
                 Key: CAMEL-5358
             Project: Camel
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: osgi
    Affects Versions: 2.9.2, 2.8.5
         Environment: Apache Service Mix: MacOS, Linux, Windows
            Reporter: jacob vandergoot
             Fix For: 2.8.6, 2.9.3

Sorry for putting this in the wrong component but I did not see a camel-castor component.

By default, the castor org.exolab.castor.mapping.Mapping will use the class's class loader
to resolve java classes declared in the castor mapping XML file.  However when the CastorDataFormat
is used an a service mix OSGi module, the class loader the contains the Java classes is not
the same as the class loader that loads the Mapping object.  Therefore it cannot load the
mapping file because the Java classes cannot be resolved.  Instead the constructor that takes
Classloader as an argument should be called when initializing the mapping object.  The classloader
it should use is the same classloader used to resolve the castor mapping XML file.

The following change in AbstractCastorDataFormat seemed to resolve the problem.

public XMLContext getXmlContext(ClassResolver resolver) throws Exception {
        if (xmlContext == null) {
            xmlContext = new XMLContext();

            if (ObjectHelper.isNotEmpty(getMappingFile())) {
                Mapping xmlMap = new Mapping(
