Subject Re: UuidGenerator performance issue
Date Tue, 21 Sep 2010 06:05:45 GMT

Can you try as suggested by Christian to use the ActiveMQ based UUID generator.
And if possible can you post some details about the performance gain you see?

We should consider switching the default uuid generator in Camel back
to the AMQ based if its much faster.
The JDK UUID based is used when you run Camel in the cloud which may
not have access to some APIs which the AMQ based need on startup.
So its a matter of just letting them use the Java UUID based if they
run in the cloud, and we can use the fastes by default instead.
