Camel doesn't shutdown properly in a Spring Boot environment. Calling the /shutdown endpoint causes Camel to hang-up after stopping the CamelContext. The reason for this is the count-down latch in the CamelSpringBootApplicationController. The overriden Main class modifies the latch in the Main class itself, not the one in CamelSpringBootApplicationController. As a result, the latch in CamelSpringBootApplicationController is waiting forever preventing a proper shutdown.
