Why is my processor not showing up in JConsole
Not every processor is managed, and thus not all are visible in JConsole.
A processor must implement the
org.apache.camel.Service to be managed. Most EIP processors do this.
For example, the minor ones such as
setHeader does not and thus is not visible in JConsole.
From Camel 2.6 onwards your custom
Processor should use the Spring JMX annotations (for Camel 2.9 onwards see the tip box below). Just add
@ManagedResource to the class, and the other annotations for the attributes and operations. Then Camel will automatically use those when the processor is being registered in JMX.
The same applies when using beans in your routes.
Notice that from Camel 2.9 onwards its encouraged to use the
@ManagedOperation from the
org.apache.camel.api.management package. This allows your custom code to not depend on Spring JARs anymore.
