Subject Re: How to use the InOut (Request-Reply) pattern in combination with REST/Jetty?
Date Mon, 28 Nov 2016 07:51:18 GMT
Hi all,
some additional info/Java code: What I have currently working is some 
code without the ActiveMQ part:

                 .dataFormatProperty("prettyPrint", "true")


                  .setHeader(Exchange.HTTP_PATH, simple(
                  .setHeader(Exchange.HTTP_METHOD, simple("GET"))

I send my REST request to localhost:8080/object/[ID]/ and get back the 
reply from the other webservice running on localhost:8888.

Now, I want to include an ActiveMQ queue here. Basically the ActiveMQ 
queue should be between the two routes (from/to("direct:objectGet")). 
The first route should send the message to the queue, the second route 
should fetch it, get the response from the other web service and send 
the response back via the queue to the first route. This one should then 
reply to the incoming REST request. Is this possible, if yes, how? My 
attempts at this did not really work.
