camel-timer-kafka-connector source configuration

When using camel-timer-kafka-connector as source make sure to use the following Maven dependency to have support for the connector:

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.apache.camel.kafkaconnector</groupId>
  <artifactId>camel-timer-kafka-connector</artifactId>
  <version>x.x.x</version>
  <!-- use the same version as your Camel Kafka connector version -->
</dependency>

To use this Source connector in Kafka connect you’ll need to set the following connector.class

connector.class=org.apache.camel.kafkaconnector.timer.CamelTimerSourceConnector

The camel-timer source connector supports 17 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Priority

camel.source.path.timerName

The name of the timer

null

HIGH

camel.source.endpoint.bridgeErrorHandler

Allows for bridging the consumer to the Camel routing Error Handler, which mean any exceptions occurred while the consumer is trying to pickup incoming messages, or the likes, will now be processed as a message and handled by the routing Error Handler. By default the consumer will use the org.apache.camel.spi.ExceptionHandler to deal with exceptions, that will be logged at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.delay

Delay before first event is triggered.

1000L

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.fixedRate

Events take place at approximately regular intervals, separated by the specified period.

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.includeMetadata

Whether to include metadata in the exchange such as fired time, timer name, timer count etc. This information is default included.

true

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.period

If greater than 0, generate periodic events every period.

1000L

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.repeatCount

Specifies a maximum limit of number of fires. So if you set it to 1, the timer will only fire once. If you set it to 5, it will only fire five times. A value of zero or negative means fire forever.

0L

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.exceptionHandler

To let the consumer use a custom ExceptionHandler. Notice if the option bridgeErrorHandler is enabled then this option is not in use. By default the consumer will deal with exceptions, that will be logged at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

null

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.exchangePattern

Sets the exchange pattern when the consumer creates an exchange. One of: [InOnly] [InOut] [InOptionalOut]

null

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.basicPropertyBinding

Whether the endpoint should use basic property binding (Camel 2.x) or the newer property binding with additional capabilities

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.daemon

Specifies whether or not the thread associated with the timer endpoint runs as a daemon. The default value is true.

true

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.pattern

Allows you to specify a custom Date pattern to use for setting the time option using URI syntax.

null

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.synchronous

Sets whether synchronous processing should be strictly used, or Camel is allowed to use asynchronous processing (if supported).

false

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.time

null

MEDIUM

camel.source.endpoint.timer

To use a custom Timer

null

MEDIUM

camel.component.timer.bridgeErrorHandler

Allows for bridging the consumer to the Camel routing Error Handler, which mean any exceptions occurred while the consumer is trying to pickup incoming messages, or the likes, will now be processed as a message and handled by the routing Error Handler. By default the consumer will use the org.apache.camel.spi.ExceptionHandler to deal with exceptions, that will be logged at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

false

MEDIUM

camel.component.timer.basicPropertyBinding

Whether the component should use basic property binding (Camel 2.x) or the newer property binding with additional capabilities

false
