I'm afraid that such functionality is not supported directly, and that
we don't have an example.

The solution I could think about is little tricky, but should work
(anyway I think we should have this functionality 'directly' ;).

from("direct:start").to("direct:aggregator", "seda:timer");
from("direct:aggregator").aggregator(header("correlation"), new

Then your MyStrategy class has to:
1) recognize MARKER body as the one that signals timeout
2) store in result exchange the last message Id received
3) if MARKER body received and the last messageID aggregated is the
one received with MARKER body, then set "completed" header that will
be discovered by completedPredicate.

Solution is not pretty and we should have something like
iddleTimeout() parameter to aggregator, but should work (I think).

It is not tested at all, and could even not compile directly ;) but
should be OK.
