Claus Ibsen commented on CAMEL-11236:

Is there more work needed on this?

> We have grpc producer-only capabilities at the moment. After the implementation of the
grpc consumer side, it would be interesting to investigate how we can make it easy to use
grpc as transport for reactive streams across network in different JVMs.
> Something like this from the sending side:
> {code}
> from("reactive-streams:datasource")
> to("grpc:my.Data?mehod=stream&host=xxx&port=yyy");
> {code}
> And this from the receiving side:
> {code}
> from("grpc:my.Data?mehod=stream&port=yyy")
> to("reactive-streams:datasink");
> {code}
> Then from a RX implementation one can send a stream of data to *datasource* and receive
it using the *datasink* stream in the other JVM.
> We can leverage the streaming capabilities of grpc (payloads and return types can be
"streams" of data).
> Grpc has also an internal way to handle backpressure using a bounded internal buffer.
We can "bridge" the grpc backpressure mechanism to the reactive-streams one, to have a proper
flow control.
> We should give to reactive-streams subscriptions an identifier to distinguish between
a new method call or a continuation of the current stream (something like this is reported
in CAMEL-11140).
