Chapter 157. VM
The vm: component provides asynchronous SEDA behavior, exchanging messages on a BlockingQueue and invoking consumers in a separate thread pool.
This component differs from the SEDA component in that VM supports communication across CamelContext instances - so you can use this mechanism to communicate across web applications (provided that
camel-core.jaris on the
VM is an extension to the SEDA component.
queueNamecan be any string to uniquely identify the endpoint within the JVM (or at least within the classloader that loaded camel-core.jar)
You can append query options to the URI in the following format:
Before Camel 2.3 - Same URI must be used for both producer and consumer
An exactly identical VM endpoint URI must be used for both the producer and the consumer endpoint. Otherwise, Camel will create a second VM endpoint despite that the
queueNameportion of the URI is identical. For example:
Notice that we have to use the full URI, including options in both the producer and consumer.
In Camel 2.4 this has been fixed so that only the queue name must match. Using the queue name
bar, we could rewrite the previous exmple as follows:
In the route below we send exchanges across CamelContext instances to a VM queue named
And then we receive exchanges in some other Camel context (such as deployed in another
