JCR Component

The jcr component allows you to add/read nodes to/from a JCR compliant content repository (for example, Apache Jackrabbit) with its producer, or register an EventListener with the consumer.

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

URI format

Consumer added

Icon

From Camel 2.10 onwards you can use consumer as an EventListener in JCR or a producer to read a node by identifier.

Usage

The repository element of the URI is used to look up the JCR Repository object in the Camel context registry.

Producer

Name

Default Value

Description

CamelJcrOperation

CamelJcrInsert

CamelJcrInsert or CamelJcrGetById operation to use

CamelJcrNodeName

null

Used to determine the node name to use.

When a message is sent to a JCR producer endpoint:

  • If the operation is CamelJcrInsert: A new node is created in the content repository, all the message headers of the IN message are transformed to javax.jcr.Value instances and added to the new node and the node's UUID is returned in the OUT message.
  • If the operation is CamelJcrGetById: A new node is retrieved from the repository using the message body as node identifier.
Icon

Please note that the JCR Producer used message properties instead of message headers in Camel versions earlier than 2.12.3. See https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CAMEL-7067 for more details.

 

Consumer

The consumer will connect to JCR periodically and return a List<javax.jcr.observation.Event> in the message body.

Name

Default Value

Description

eventTypes

0

A combination of one or more event types encoded as a bit mask value such as javax.jcr.observation.Event.NODE_ADDED, javax.jcr.observation.Event.NODE_REMOVED, etc.

deep

false

When it is true, events whose associated parent node is at current path or within its subgraph are received.

uuids

null

Only events whose associated parent node has one of the identifiers in the comma separated uuid list will be received.

nodeTypeNames

null

Only events whose associated parent node has one of the node types (or a subtype of one of the node types) in this list will be received.

noLocal

false

If noLocal is true, then events generated by the session through which the listener was registered are ignored. Otherwise, they are not ignored.

sessionLiveCheckInterval

60000

Interval in milliseconds to wait before each session live checking.

sessionLiveCheckIntervalOnStart

3000

Interval in milliseconds to wait before the first session live checking.

username Camel 2.15: Allows to specify the username as a uri parameter instead of in the authority section of the uri
password Camel 2.15: Allows to specify the password as a uri parameter instead of in the authority section of the uri

Example

The snippet below creates a node named node under the /home/test node in the content repository. One additional property is added to the node as well: my.contents.property which will contain the body of the message being sent.

 

The following code will register an EventListener under the path import-application/inbox for Event.NODE_ADDED and Event.NODE_REMOVED events (event types 1 and 2, both masked as 3) and listening deep for all the children.
