Subject Re: Best Practices for Triggering Routes from Code
Date Thu, 03 Dec 2009 00:32:41 GMT

I'm talking about on demand triggering. Basically, I want to be able to
trigger a route programatically from within my code. I'm using quartz
already for certain batch processing. I'm just trying to understand how the
items I listed differ, whether they are the set you'd want to use for on
demand triggering and whether the ProducerTemplate is the right way to go
about that.
