Hmm, if you don't use Futures, is there any other way of getting the 
asynchronous result of a proxy method call? Or is everybody directly 
using send/receive without service proxies?

Some background for my question: I started looking into Camel as a 
possible replacement for Lingo, which we're using in our project in 
production. (Lingo is no longer maintained and only works for us with a 
bunch of patches.)

But it seems that camel-jms only has a subset of Lingo's features (and 
possibly some others) - we're heavily using EventListener callbacks with 
Lingo. It may be a matter of taste whether or not Futures are preferable 
to listeners and callbacks, but as long as Camel supports neither, I 
guess we're stuck with Lingo.

Best regards,
