PHP

Camel supports PHP among other Scripting Languages to allow an Expression or Predicate to be used in the DSL or Xml Configuration.

To use a PHP expression use the following Java code

For example you could use the php function to create an Predicate in a Message Filter or as an Expression for a Recipient List

Passing Additional Arguments to the ScriptingEngine

Available from Camel 2.8

You can provide additional arguments to the ScriptingEngine using a header on the Camel message with the key CamelScriptArguments.

Example:

Using Properties Function

Available from Camel 2.9

If you need to use the Properties component from a script to lookup property placeholders, then its a bit cumbersome to do so. For example, to set a header name myHeader with a value from a property placeholder, whose key is taken from a header named foo.

From Camel 2.9: you can now use the properties function and the same example is simpler:

Loading Script From External Resource

Available from Camel 2.11

You can externalize the script and have Camel load it from a resource such as classpath:, file:, or http:. This is done using the following syntax: resource:scheme:location e.g. to refer to a file on the classpath you can do:

How to Get the Result from Multiple Statements Script

Available from Camel 2.14

The script engine's eval method returns a null when it runs a multi-statement script. However, Camel can look up the value of a script's result by using the key result from the value set. When writing a multi-statement script set the value of the result variable as the script return value.

 

Dependencies

To use scripting languages in your camel routes you need to add the a dependency on camel-script which integrates the JSR-223 scripting engine.

If you use maven you could just add the following to your pom.xml, substituting the version number for the latest & greatest release (see the download page for the latest versions).
