Subject [jira] [Commented] (CAMEL-1077) tcp client mode / server mode determined by "to" or "from" elements limits usability.
Date Thu, 18 Aug 2016 13:21:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CAMEL-1077?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15426429#comment-15426429

Oliver Pfeiffer commented on CAMEL-1077:
----------------------------------------

I have to correct myself: The example given above at least requires that *any* character is
send to trigger the route (not necessarily a newline). Unfortunately in our use-case the incoming
client just silently connects to our server-socket but does not send anything (instead it
is waiting for the request).

[~njiang] do you have any other suggestion how to switch the consumer / producer role even
if a server-socket is used?

> Internally, 
> MinaProducer is coded to create a Mina connector (client mode socket).
> MinaConsumer is coded to create a Mina acceptor (server mode socket).
> Additionally, it appears a producer (client mode socket) is created for a "to" route
mapping and a consumer (server mode socket) is created for a "from" route mapping.
> This means an endpoint cannot be created in which the session is initiated by a client
and messages are routed "to" the client. 
> The opposite is also true, an endpoint with a "from" route mapping cannot establish a
connection to a tcp server.
> This is a major limitation, as we do not often have control over the systems with which
we are interfacing.
> Perhaps, the mina::tcp URI could have a parameter the sets the socket mode: tcp.mode=server
or tcp.mode=client.
> Hope this make sense, thanks!
