Subject Re: Camel SCR and CDI

Hi Brad,

Camel CDI only works at the level of CDI beans, that is it won’t manage RouteBuilder instances
that are declared as SCR component.

Then you can imagine having Camel CDI and SCR components collaborating through the OSGi registry,
using PAX CDI in the mix.

That being said, Camel CDI / SCR integration is an area that still needs some work.
