AWS Lambda Component

Since Camel 2.20

Only Producer is supported

The Lambda component supports create, get, list, delete and invoke AWS Lambda functions.

Prerequisites

You must have a valid Amazon Web Services developer account, and be signed up to use Amazon Lambda. More information is available at AWS Lambda.

When creating a Lambda function, you need to specify a IAM role which has at least the AWSLambdaBasicExecuteRole policy attached.

Warning

Lambda is regional service. Unlike S3 bucket, Lambda function created in a given region is not available on other regions.

URI Format

aws-lambda://functionName[?options]

You can append query options to the URI in the following format, ?options=value&option2=value&…​

URI Options

The AWS Lambda component supports 7 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Type

configuration (advanced)

The AWS Lambda default configuration

LambdaConfiguration

accessKey (producer)

Amazon AWS Access Key

String

secretKey (producer)

Amazon AWS Secret Key

String

region (producer)

Amazon AWS Region

String

basicPropertyBinding (advanced)

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

false

boolean

lazyStartProducer (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

bridgeErrorHandler (consumer)

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

The AWS Lambda endpoint is configured using URI syntax:

aws-lambda:function

with the following path and query parameters:

Path Parameters (1 parameters):

Name Description Default Type

function

Required Name of the Lambda function.

Spring Boot Auto-Configuration

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

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.apache.camel</groupId>
  <artifactId>camel-aws-lambda-starter</artifactId>
  <version>x.x.x</version>

Example

To have a full understanding of how the component works, you may have a look at this integration test

Automatic detection of AmazonLambda client in registry

The component is capable of detecting the presence of an AmazonLambda bean into the registry. If it’s the only instance of that type it will be used as client and you won’t have to define it as uri parameter. This may be really useful for smarter configuration of the endpoint.

Dependencies

Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml.

pom.xml

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.camel</groupId>
    <artifactId>camel-aws-lambda</artifactId>
    <version>${camel-version}</version>
</dependency>

where ${camel-version} must be replaced by the actual version of Camel.
