Subject Re: Testability of routes

Yes, you can use mock endpoint to check the exchange.
According to you description of the production configuration,
I think you can add a mock endpoint at the end of route, and check the 
exchange which is routed to this endpoint. But this will change your 
production route rule a litter bit.

Or you can treat the camel route as a black box, just use camel 
producerTemplate to send the message and check the response. This 
solution requires your message exchange pattern to be InOut.

Maybe we can add an debugInterceptor dsl which take the mock endpoint as 
the parameter and we can turn on or turn off the interceptor at camel 

Any thought ?
