The irc component implements an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) transport.

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

keys

null

sslContextParameters

Camel 2.9: Reference to a org.apache.camel.util.jsse.SSLContextParameters in the Registry.  This reference overrides any configured SSLContextParameters at the component level.  See Using the JSSE Configuration Utility.  Note that this setting overrides the trustManager option.

#mySslContextParameters

null

SSL Support

Using the JSSE Configuration Utility

As of Camel 2.9, the IRC component supports SSL/TLS configuration through the Camel JSSE Configuration Utility.  This utility greatly decreases the amount of component specific code you need to write and is configurable at the endpoint and component levels.  The following examples demonstrate how to use the utility with the IRC component.

Programmatic configuration of the endpoint
Spring DSL based configuration of endpoint

Using the legacy basic configuration options

You can also connect to an SSL enabled IRC server, as follows:

By default, the IRC transport uses SSLDefaultTrustManager. If you need to provide your own custom trust manager, use the trustManager parameter as follows:

Using keys

Available as of Camel 2.2

Some irc rooms requires you to provide a key to be able to join that channel. The key is just a secret word.

For example we join 3 channels where as only channel 1 and 3 uses a key.
