camel-mongodb-source-kafka-connector source configuration

Connector Description: Consume data from MongoDB. If you enable the `persistentTailTracking` property, the consumer keeps track of the last consumed message and, on the next restart, the consumption restarts from that message. If you enable `persistentTailTracking`, you must provide a value for the `tailTrackIncreasingField` property (by default it is optional). If you disable the `persistentTailTracking` property, the consumer consumes the whole collection and waits in idle for new data to consume. The collection that provides the data must be a capped collection.
