MDC routeId value is lost after calling a direct route from a camel transacted route

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We are experiencing issues with the camel.routeId value is disappearing from the MDC context after calling a direct route.
    It seems that this occurs when the direct component is used within a transacted route.

  • Attached is a test case demonstrating the issue. The case is loosely based on org.apache.camel.processor.MDCTest.
    The issue goes away if either:

    • direct:b is replaced with direct-vm:b
    • .transacted() is removed from the parent route definition
  • In our current routes it appears that converting all direct components into direct-vm components will probably be a workable solution, though we have yet to test this.
