Camel CouchDB component

Available as of Camel 2.11

The couchdb: component allows you to treat CouchDB instances as a producer or consumer of messages. Using the lightweight LightCouch API, this camel component has the following features:

  • As a consumer, monitors couch changesets for inserts, updates and deletes and publishes these as messages into camel routes.
  • As a producer, can save or update documents into couch.
  • Can support as many endpoints as required, eg for multiple databases across multiple instances.
  • Ability to have events trigger for only deletes, only inserts/updates or all (default).
  • Headers set for sequenceId, document revision, document id, and HTTP method type.

Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:

URI format

Where hostname is the hostname of the running couchdb instance. Port is optional and if not specified then defaults to 5984.

Options

Property

Default

Headers

The following headers are set on exchanges during message transport.

Property

Value

CouchDbDatabase

the database the message came from

CouchDbSeq

the couchdb changeset sequence number of the update / delete message

CouchDbId

the couchdb document id

CouchDbRev

the couchdb document revision

CouchDbMethod

the method (delete / update)

Headers are set by the consumer once the message is received. The producer will also set the headers for downstream processors once the insert/update has taken place. Any headers set prior to the producer are ignored. That means for example, if you set CouchDbId as a header, it will not be used as the id for insertion, the id of the document will still be used.

Message Body

The component will use the message body as the document to be inserted. If the body is an instance of String, then it will be marshalled into a GSON object before insert. This means that the string must be valid JSON or the insert / update will fail. If the body is an instance of a com.google.gson.JsonElement then it will be inserted as is. Otherwise the producer will throw an exception of unsupported body type.

Samples

For example if you wish to consume all inserts, updates and deletes from a CouchDB instance running locally, on port 9999 then you could use the following:

If you were only interested in deletes, then you could use the following

If you wanted to insert a message as a document, then the body of the exchange is used
