I am looking into this but I think you can maybe use depends-on the
route builder bean as shown here:

    <bean id="myRouteBuilder" depends-on="myDependsOnBean"

    <!-- this bean must be initialized first -->
    <bean id="myDependsOnBean"
        <property name="endpointName" value="mock:result"/>

    <camelContext id="myCamel" xmlns="">
        <routeBuilder ref="myRouteBuilder"/>
