> So my assumption reading the servlet component doco is that with 2.18+ and a Servlet
3+ container, the component supports async, which it kind of does with the async=true init
config, and there is even a method in CamelServlet called "doServiceAsync" but from what i
can tell it doesn't really do it in a asynchronous manner, where there are no blocked threads
while a request is awaiting an async operation (like an AHC call for example).
> Looking at:
> https://github.com/apache/camel/blob/master/components/camel-http-common/src/main/java/org/apache/camel/http/common/CamelServlet.java
> While processing a request, we check if we are in async mode and call doServiceAsync..
> {code:java}
>  @Override
>     protected final void service(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse resp) throws
ServletException, IOException {
>         if (isAsync()) {
>             final AsyncContext context = req.startAsync();
>             //run async
>             context.start(() -> doServiceAsync(context));
>         } else {
>             doService(req, resp);
>         }
>     }
> {code}
> then in doServiceAsync() we call doService().. and then we call getProcessor().process(exchange),
not process(exchange, asyncCallback) which is the proper async method..
> {code:java}
> try {
>             if (log.isTraceEnabled()) {
>                 log.trace("Processing request for exchangeId: {}", exchange.getExchangeId());
>             }
>             // process the exchange
>             consumer.getProcessor().process(exchange);
>         } catch (Exception e) {
>             exchange.setException(e);
>         }
> {code}
> So the actual behaviour is an inbound request in async mode that ends up just blocking
waiting for the request to complete, in a totally sync manner. I presume this is not the desired
behaviour?
> It seems the fix would be to move the doService() logic to doServiceAsync() and have
doService() call it and use the AsyncProcessorConverterHelper. Or the other alternative would
be to update the documentation to explicitly note that it is actually not async at all.
> I can probably PR it in, just wanted to get thoughts on the actual intention.
