Known Issues

Please be aware of the cacheLevelName setting when using the JMS and ActiveMQ components; the defaults have changed recently to work around some bugs in Spring that are fixed in version 2.5.x. Please refer to the warnings on the JMS page for more details.

There is an issue in Error Handler if you have configured 2 or more exception clauses. Camel picks the first clause that is an instance of the thrown exception. Chances are that if you have configued a top level clause such as java.lang.Exception that Camel could pick this clause over a more specialized clause such as for network related issues. The issue is reported in CAMEL-410.
