Available as of Camel 2.11
The controlbus: component provides easy management of Camel applications based on the Control Bus EIP pattern.
Where command can be any string to identify which type of command to use.
You can append query options to the URI in the following format, ?option=value&option=value&...
The route command allows you to do common tasks on a given route very easily, for example to start a route, you can send an empty message to this endpoint:
To get the status of the route, you can do:
Available as of Camel 2.11.1
This requires JMX to be enabled (is by default) then you can get the performance statics per route, or for the CamelContext. For example to get the statics for a route named foo, we can do:
The returned statics is in XML format. Its the same data you can get from JMX with the dumpRouteStatsAsXml operation on the ManagedRouteMBean.
To get statics for the entire CamelContext you just omit the routeId parameter as shown below:
Using Simple language
You can use the Simple language with the control bus, for example to stop a specific route, you can send a message to the "controlbus:language:simple" endpoint containing the following message:
As this is a void operation, no result is returned. However, if you want the route status you can do:
Notice: its easier to use the route command to control lifecycle of routes. The language command allows you to execute a language script that has stronger powers such as Groovy or to some extend the Simple language.
For example to shutdown Camel itself you can do:
Notice we use async=true to stop Camel asynchronously as otherwise we would be trying to stop Camel while it was in-flight processing the message we sent to the control bus component.
