Re: memory leak in Camel
Ah okay, good to hear you were able to build a better solution that runs stable.
There are a lot of Camel applications over the world running stable in
production, so if we hear about memory leaks, we are keen on fixing /
looking into them.
But as you say they can sometimes be hard to track, whether its camel
code, user code, or 3rd party libraries that are the culprit, or a
combination of them.

At least, the application is running since Friday and did not have any problems. The original software had run into the OutOfMemoryException after only a couple of minutes.
