How do the
vm endpoints compare?
VM and SEDA endpoints are basically the same; they both offer asychronous in memory SEDA queues; they differ in visibility — endpoints are visible inside the same JVM or within the same CamelContext respectively.
Direct uses no threading; it directly invokes the consumer when sending.
Spring Event adds a listener to Spring’s application events; so the consumer is invoked the same thread as Spring notifies events. Event differs in that the payload should be a Spring
ApplicationEventobject whereas Direct, SEDA and VM can use any payload.
