Problem Description

Assume that a route is exposed as web service provider using a cCXF component, and that it also calls an external web service using another cCXF.


If this external web service takes longer to respond, then the first cCXF throws a NullPointerException instead of a Timeout:

  at org.apache.camel.impl.DefaultConsumer.doneUoW([158:org.apache.camel.camel-core:2.16.3]
  at org.apache.camel.component.cxf.CxfConsumer$1.asyncInvoke([159:org.apache.camel.camel-cxf:2.16.3]
  at org.apache.camel.component.cxf.CxfConsumer$1.invoke([159:org.apache.camel.camel-cxf:2.16.3]
Problem root cause Camel issue
Solution or Workaround

Upgrade to Talend version 6.4.1.

Also add the continuationTimeout argument in the first cCXF component ("Advanced settings"), and set it to a value greater than the ReceiveTimeout. For example, set it to 70000 (70 seconds) if you are using the default ReceiveTimeout of 60000 (60 seconds).
