CMIS Component

Since Camel 2.11

Both producer and consumer is supported

The cmis component uses the Apache Chemistry client API and allows you to add/read nodes to/from a CMIS compliant content repositories.

URI Format

cmis://cmisServerUrl[?options]

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

CMIS Options

The CMIS component supports 4 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Type

sessionFacadeFactory (common)

To use a custom CMISSessionFacadeFactory to create the CMISSessionFacade instances

CMISSessionFacadeFactory

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 CMIS endpoint is configured using URI syntax:

cmis:cmsUrl

with the following path and query parameters:

Path Parameters (1 parameters):

Name Description Default Type

cmsUrl

Required URL to the cmis repository

String

Query Parameters (15 parameters):

Name Description Default Type

pageSize (common)

Number of nodes to retrieve per page

100

int

readContent (common)

If set to true, the content of document node will be retrieved in addition to the properties

false

boolean

readCount (common)

Max number of nodes to read

int

repositoryId (common)

The Id of the repository to use. If not specified the first available repository is used

String

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

query (consumer)

The cmis query to execute against the repository. If not specified, the consumer will retrieve every node from the content repository by iterating the content tree recursively

String

exceptionHandler (consumer)

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.

ExceptionHandler

exchangePattern (consumer)

Sets the exchange pattern when the consumer creates an exchange.

ExchangePattern

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

queryMode (producer)

If true, will execute the cmis query from the message body and return result, otherwise will create a node in the cmis repository

false

boolean

basicPropertyBinding (advanced)

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

false

boolean

sessionFacadeFactory (advanced)

To use a custom CMISSessionFacadeFactory to create the CMISSessionFacade instances

CMISSessionFacadeFactory

synchronous (advanced)

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

false

boolean

password (security)

Password for the cmis repository

String

username (security)

Username for the cmis repository

String

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

The component supports 5 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Type

camel.component.cmis.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.cmis.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.cmis.enabled

Enable cmis component

true

Boolean

camel.component.cmis.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.cmis.session-facade-factory

To use a custom CMISSessionFacadeFactory to create the CMISSessionFacade instances. The option is a org.apache.camel.component.cmis.CMISSessionFacadeFactory type.

String

Usage

Message headers evaluated by the producer

Header Default Value Description

CamelCMISFolderPath

/

The current folder to use during the execution. If not specified will use the root folder

CamelCMISRetrieveContent

false

In queryMode this header will force the producer to retrieve the content of document nodes.

CamelCMISReadSize

0

Max number of nodes to read.

cmis:path

null

If CamelCMISFolderPath is not set, will try to find out the path of the node from this cmis property and it is name

cmis:name

null

If CamelCMISFolderPath is not set, will try to find out the path of the node from this cmis property and it is path

cmis:objectTypeId

null

The type of the node

cmis:contentStreamMimeType

null

The mimetype to set for a document

Message headers set during querying Producer operation

Header Type Description

CamelCMISResultCount

Integer

Number of nodes returned from the query.

The message body will contain a list of maps, where each entry in the map is cmis property and its value. If CamelCMISRetrieveContent header is set to true, one additional entry in the map with key CamelCMISContent will contain InputStream of the document type of nodes.

Dependencies

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

pom.xml

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

where ${camel-version} must be replaced by the actual version of Camel (2.11 or higher).
