The direct: component provides direct, synchronous invocation of any consumers when a producer sends a message exchange.
This endpoint can be used to connect existing routes in the same camel context.
The SEDA component provides asynchronous invocation of any consumers when a producer sends a message exchange.
|Connection to other camel contexts|
The VM component provides connections between Camel contexts as long they run in the same JVM.
Where someName can be any string to uniquely identify the endpoint
| Name || Default Value || Description |
| allowMultipleConsumers || true || @deprecated If set to false, then when a second consumer is started on the endpoint, an IllegalStateException is thrown. Will be removed in Camel 2.1: Direct endpoint does not support multiple consumers. |
| block || false || Camel 2.11.1: If sending a message to a direct endpoint which has no active consumer, then we can tell the producer to block and wait for the consumer to become active. |
| timeout || 30000 || Camel 2.11.1: The timeout value to use if block is enabled. |
You can append query options to the URI in the following format, ?option=value&option=value&...
In the route below we use the direct component to link the two routes together:
