>                 URL:
>             Project: Camel
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: camel-activemq
>    Affects Versions: 2.10.0

> Imagine a sequential JMS invocation across Camel routes, such as the following:
> {code}
> <route>
>     <from uri="timer:foo?fixedRate=true&amp;period=10000" />
>     <inOut uri="activemq:queue:test1" />
>     <inOut uri="activemq:queue:test2" />
> </route>
> {code}
> The camel-jms consumer listening on test1 will set the {{JMSCorrelationID}} header to
the {{JMSMessageID}} for that exchange.
> When the response returns to the route and sent to test2, this consumer also uses the
*same* {{JMSCorrelationID}} as before.
> IMHO, this behaviour is incorrect from the pragmatic perspective. Why should test2 reuse
the Message ID from test1 after all?
> Despite that, the correlation works for simple cases, but for complex routing with parallel
JMS exchanges, it doesn't because the correlation ID is not unique for each exchange. Consider
the following splitter:

>             <inOut uri="activemq:queue:test1" />
>             <split parallelProcessing="true">

>                 <inOut uri="activemq:queue:test2" />
>             </split> 
>             <to uri="log:Finished?showAll=true" />
>         </route>
>         <route>
>             <from uri="activemq:queue:test1" />
>             <to uri="log:Received?showAll=true" />
>         </route>
>          <route>
>             <from uri="activemq:queue:test2" />
>             <to uri="log:Received?showAll=true" />
>             <setBody><constant>reply</constant></setBody>
>             <delay><constant>100</constant></delay>
>         </route>
> {code}
> There are several solutions here:
> # Remove the JMSCorrelationID header before each request to test2
> # Enable the useMessageIDAsCorrelationID option on both producer and consumer endpoints
> # Create a new option to assign a unique ID to the JMSCorrelationID header
> The downside of 2 is that the message ID is only assigned after the JMS dispatch, so
the component updates the correlation map with the final JMSMessageID after the JMS dispatch.
Also, camel-jms is also prepared to handle cases where the reply comes in before the map update
has occurred, by waiting 5 seconds if an unknown correlation ID is received, blocking the
receipt of any further replies. You will agree with me this is inefficient and flaky for enterprise
> That's where the upside of 3 lies. By expressly setting a static unique ID as the correlation
ID, we get rid of these race conditions and inefficiencies.
> I propose calling this option 'assignUniqueCorrelationID'.
> I'm happy to submit a patch for this, targeting 2.10.1.
