Camel Spring Boot Starter for ehcache

Spring Boot Auto-Configuration

When using ehcache with Spring Boot make sure to use the following Maven dependency to have support for auto configuration:

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.apache.camel.springboot</groupId>
  <artifactId>camel-ehcache-starter</artifactId>
  <version>x.x.x</version>
  <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version -->
</dependency>

The component supports 21 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Type

camel.component.ehcache.action

To configure the default cache action. If an action is set in the message header, then the operation from the header takes precedence.

String

camel.component.ehcache.basic-property-binding

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

false

Boolean

camel.component.ehcache.bridge-error-handler

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

Boolean

camel.component.ehcache.cache-manager

The cache manager. The option is a org.ehcache.CacheManager type.

String

camel.component.ehcache.cache-manager-configuration

The default cache configuration to be used to create caches. The option is a org.ehcache.config.CacheConfiguration type.

String

camel.component.ehcache.configuration-uri

Whether to enable auto configuration of the ehcache component. This is enabled by default.

Boolean

camel.component.ehcache.event-firing

Set the delivery mode (synchronous, asynchronous)

EventFiring

camel.component.ehcache.event-ordering

Set the delivery mode (ordered, unordered)

EventOrdering

camel.component.ehcache.event-types

String

camel.component.ehcache.key

To configure the default action key. If a key is set in the message header, then the key from the header takes precedence. The option is a java.lang.Object type.

String

camel.component.ehcache.key-type

The cache key type, default java.lang.Object

String

camel.component.ehcache.lazy-start-producer

Whether the producer should be started lazy (on the first message). By starting lazy you can use this to allow CamelContext and routes to startup in situations where a producer may otherwise fail during starting and cause the route to fail being started. By deferring this startup to be lazy then the startup failure can be handled during routing messages via Camel’s routing error handlers. Beware that when the first message is processed then creating and starting the producer may take a little time and prolong the total processing time of the processing.

false

Boolean

camel.component.ehcache.value-type

The cache value type, default java.lang.Object
