Subject Re: Component Design - SMSLib

My advice would be to read over the source for the file endpoint first - it's
fairly bare-bones and makes it easy to comprehend how things work (for
example, how endpoints receive parameters and then pass those along to
consumers and producers). From there it's helpful to go through the mock
endpoint and get a new point of view for how things are constructed largely
in-memory. To get a better idea of how asynchronous production works, the
source for the HTTP component is a good place to start.

You'll see a common thread amongst the file/HTTP/mock components on common
design patterns, including:
- Start out with separate Component/Endpoint/Producer/Consumer/Message and
unit test them out the wazoo individually
- Use Camel's thread pool strategy when creating new thread pools
- Use helper methods such as DefaultComponent.setProperties to set options
from the URI onto your endpoint
should be the base classes you need
