Camel-CDI will find every class in a deployment which extends RouteBuilder and automatically add them to the context. This is a major issue for me as I usually wants to instantiate my RouteBuilders programatically setting various parameters, with CDI support.
This behaviour was introduced with https://github.com/apache/camel/commit/0421c24dfcf992f3296ed746469771e3800200e3 from Antonin Stefanutti and we had a good discussion about the issue on his github project in https://github.com/astefanutti/camel-cdi/issues/12 but never came up with a good solution for it. I have patched camel-cdi to use a marker annotation @DoNotAddToCamelContext to work around it but I don't want to have to patch every release I use..
I understand the logic why Camel-CDI finds and add every RouteBuilder class, even though I don't agree that it is a good idea but it could very well be the default behavior as long as it is possible to override it.
What I would like is a discussion on how this could be made configurable. I'm thinking about if there could be an annotation like @CamelContextStartup(false) or maybe even a more general @CamelContextConfig(autostart=false) if there are other things that should be configurable.
