Camel Quarkus limitations

CSimple language is supported only in


  • Java DSL when implemented in a class extending org.apache.camel.builder.RouteBuilder

The compilation of CSimple scripts happens at build time. To be able to discover the scripts in the route definitions, those definitions need to get assembled at build time. When extending org.apache.camel.builder.RouteBuilder, this basically means instantiating your RouteBuilder, setting a fake CamelContext instance on it and calling its configure() method. It may fail if your configure() method attempts to access some resource that is only available at runtime.

You can use the quarkus.camel.csimple.on-build-time-analysis-failure configuration parameter to decide what should happen in such cases. Possible values are warn (default), fail or ignore.

CSimple language will not work on Camel Quarkus if used in a org.apache.camel.builder.LambdaRouteBuilder
