Key Security, Maintenance, and Features Releases
Apache Camel 3.6
To speed up the startup we switched to a new UUID generator. The old (classic) generator was inherited from Apache ActiveMQ which needed to ensure its ids were unique in a network of brokers, and therefore to ensure this the generator was using the hostname as the prefix in the id. This required on startup to do network access to obtain this information which costs a little time. Also depending on networks this can be more restrictive and delay the startup. The new generator is a pure in-memory fast generator that was used by Camel K and Camel Quarkus.
We also identified a few other spots during route initialization. For example, one small change was to avoid doing some regular expression masking on route endpoints which weren’t necessary anymore.
