Scheduled Poll Consumer

This component implements the ScheduledPollConsumer. Only the last message from the provided 'consumeUsers' are retrieved and sent as Exchange body. If you do not want the same message to be retrieved again when there are no new messages on next poll then you can add the idempotent consumer as shown below. All the options on the ScheduledPollConsumer can also be used for more control on the consumer.
@Override
public void configure() throws Exception {
 String hipchatEndpointUri = "hipchat://?authToken=XXXX&consumeUsers=@Joe,@John";
 from(hipchatEndpointUri)
  .idempotentConsumer(
    simple("${in.header.HipchatMessageDate} ${in.header.HipchatFromUser}"),
    MemoryIdempotentRepository.memoryIdempotentRepository(200)
  )
  .to("mock:result");
}
