Since we're on a major migration process of this website, some component documents here are out of sync right now. In the meantime you may want to look at the asciidoc in the repository: https://github.com/apache/camel/blob/master/README.md https://github.com/apache/camel/blob/master/components/readme.adoc
Loading routes from XML files
Available as of Camel 2.6
This cookbook shows how to load and add routes from XML files into an existing CamelContext.
When adding routes as shown on this page, the routes is isolated and cannot re-use any existing
You can define Camel routes in XML files using the
<routes xmlns="http://camel.apache.org/schema/spring"> <!-- here we define the bar route --> <route id="bar"> <from uri="direct:bar"/> <to uri="mock:bar"/> </route> <!-- we could add more routes if we like, but in this example we stick to one route only --> </routes>
We can then load this route and add to the existing CamelContext using the following lines of code:Error rendering macro 'code': Invalid value specified for parameter 'java.lang.NullPointerException'
// load route from XML and add them to the existing camel context InputStream is = getClass().getResourceAsStream("barRoute.xml"); RoutesDefinition routes = context.loadRoutesDefinition(is); context.addRouteDefinitions(routes.getRoutes());
If you are using older versions of Camel, you can do this as well but it requires a bit more work. See this commit log.
