Subject Re: metadata for components, processors etc
Date Fri, 01 May 2015 11:39:52 GMT

No the components / endpoints dont provide meta-data what java types
and data formats they support. However we may get there in the longer
run. There is a JIRA ticket about this idea. And with the recent
component doc enhancements we have an instrument to provide the
details. So end users can annotate the endpoints with the details, and
then you can get that information at both design time for tooling, and
at runtime etc.
