The seda producer only allows:
- adding with possible exception if queue is full
- blocking until space is available
I'd like to suggest a third option for seda where a configured timeout can be added to the block case. Utilizing the .offer(timeout) method of the underlining java queue
I have a Apache NiFi system doing rest posts to my Apache Camel system. The camel system attempt to put the received message onto a seda queue which is backed by a SynchronousQueue. This causes an exception to occur if no threads are available to do the work requested, returns a service temporarily unavailable status to NiFi and Nifi pauses it's rest posts for a short delay.
I'd be able to save on some network traffic I/O if I was able to say try and wait 100ms before giving up on putting the data on the queue.
Concept of adding the "offer/timeout" was suggested in comments of
