Azure Storage Queue Service

Since Camel 3.3

Both producer and consumer are supported

The Azure Storage Queue component supports storing and retrieving the messages to/from Azure Storage Queue service using Azure APIs v12. However, in the case of versions above v12, we will see if this component can adopt these changes depending on how much breaking changes can result.

Prerequisites

You must have a valid Windows Azure Storage account. More information is available at Azure Documentation Portal.

Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.camel</groupId>
    <artifactId>camel-azure-storage-queue</artifactId>
    <version>x.x.x</version>
  <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version -->
</dependency>

URI Format

azure-storage-queue://accountName[/queueName][?options]

In the case of consumer, accountName and queueName are required.

In the case of producer, it depends on the operation that being requested, for example, if operation is on a service level, e.b: listQueues, only accountName is required, but in the case of operation being requested on the queue level, e.g.: createQueue, `sendMessage, etc., both accountName and queueName are required.

The queue will be created if it does not already exist. You can append query options to the URI in the following format: ?options=value&option2=value&…​

Configuring Options

Camel components are configured on two separate levels:

  • component level

  • endpoint level

Configuring Component Options

At the component level, you set general and shared configurations that are, then, inherited by the endpoints. It is the highest configuration level.

For example, a component may have security settings, credentials for authentication, urls for network connection and so forth.

Some components only have a few options, and others may have many. Because components typically have pre-configured defaults that are commonly used, then you may often only need to configure a few options on a component; or none at all.

You can configure components using:

  • the Component DSL.

  • in a configuration file (application.properties, *.yaml files, etc).

  • directly in the Java code.

Configuring Endpoint Options

You usually spend more time setting up endpoints because they have many options. These options help you customize what you want the endpoint to do. The options are also categorized into whether the endpoint is used as a consumer (from), as a producer (to), or both.

Configuring endpoints is most often done directly in the endpoint URI as path and query parameters. You can also use the Endpoint DSL and DataFormat DSL as a type safe way of configuring endpoints and data formats in Java.

A good practice when configuring options is to use Property Placeholders.

Property placeholders provide a few benefits:

  • They help prevent using hardcoded urls, port numbers, sensitive information, and other settings.

  • They allow externalizing the configuration from the code.

  • They help the code to become more flexible and reusable.

The following two sections list all the options, firstly for the component followed by the endpoint.

Component Options

The Azure Storage Queue Service component supports 18 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Type

configuration (common)

The component configurations.

QueueConfiguration

credentialType (common)

Determines the credential strategy to adopt.

Enum values:

  • SHARED_ACCOUNT_KEY

  • SHARED_KEY_CREDENTIAL

  • AZURE_IDENTITY

SHARED_ACCOUNT_KEY

CredentialType

serviceClient (common)

Autowired Service client to a storage account to interact with the queue service. This client does not hold any state about a particular storage account but is instead a convenient way of sending off appropriate requests to the resource on the service. This client contains all the operations for interacting with a queue account in Azure Storage. Operations allowed by the client are creating, listing, and deleting queues, retrieving and updating properties of the account, and retrieving statistics of the account.

QueueServiceClient

bridgeErrorHandler (consumer)

Allows for bridging the consumer to the Camel routing Error Handler, which mean any exceptions (if possible) occurred while the Camel consumer is trying to pickup incoming messages, or the likes, will now be processed as a message and handled by the routing Error Handler. Important: This is only possible if the 3rd party component allows Camel to be alerted if an exception was thrown. Some components handle this internally only, and therefore bridgeErrorHandler is not possible. In other situations we may improve the Camel component to hook into the 3rd party component and make this possible for future releases. 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

createQueue (producer)

When is set to true, the queue will be automatically created when sending messages to the queue.

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

operation (producer)

Queue service operation hint to the producer.

Enum values:

  • listQueues

  • createQueue

  • deleteQueue

  • clearQueue

  • sendMessage

  • deleteMessage

  • receiveMessages

  • peekMessages

  • updateMessage

QueueOperationDefinition

autowiredEnabled (advanced)

Whether autowiring is enabled. This is used for automatic autowiring options (the option must be marked as autowired) by looking up in the registry to find if there is a single instance of matching type, which then gets configured on the component. This can be used for automatic configuring JDBC data sources, JMS connection factories, AWS Clients, etc.

true

boolean

healthCheckConsumerEnabled (health)

Used for enabling or disabling all consumer based health checks from this component.

true

boolean

healthCheckProducerEnabled (health)

Used for enabling or disabling all producer based health checks from this component. Notice: Camel has by default disabled all producer based health-checks. You can turn on producer checks globally by setting camel.health.producersEnabled=true.

true

boolean

maxMessages (queue)

Maximum number of messages to get, if there are less messages exist in the queue than requested all the messages will be returned. If left empty only 1 message will be retrieved, the allowed range is 1 to 32 messages.

Duration

timeToLive (queue)

How long the message will stay alive in the queue. If unset the value will default to 7 days, if -1 is passed the message will not expire. The time to live must be -1 or any positive number. The format should be in this form: PnDTnHnMn.nS., e.g: PT20.345S — parses as 20.345 seconds, P2D — parses as 2 days However, in case you are using EndpointDsl/ComponentDsl, you can do something like Duration.ofSeconds() since these Java APIs are typesafe.

Duration

visibilityTimeout (queue)

The timeout period for how long the message is invisible in the queue. The timeout must be between 1 seconds and 7 days. The format should be in this form: PnDTnHnMn.nS., e.g: PT20.345S — parses as 20.345 seconds, P2D — parses as 2 days However, in case you are using EndpointDsl/ComponentDsl, you can do something like Duration.ofSeconds() since these Java APIs are typesafe.

Duration

accessKey (security)

Required information options:

To use this component, you have multiple options to provide the required Azure authentication information:

  • By providing your own QueueServiceClient instance which can be injected into serviceClient.

  • Via Azure Identity, when specifying credentialType=AZURE_IDENTITY and providing required environment variables. This enables service principal (e.g. app registration) authentication with secret/certificate as well as username password.

  • Via shared storage account key, when specifying credentialType=SHARED_ACCOUNT_KEY and providing accountName and accessKey for your Azure account, this is the simplest way to get started. The accessKey can be generated through your Azure portal. Note that this is the default authentication strategy.

  • Via shared storage account key, when specifying credentialType=SHARED_KEY_CREDENTIAL and providing a StorageSharedKeyCredential instance which can be injected into credentials option.

Usage

For example, to get a message content from the queue messageQueue in the storageAccount storage account and, use the following snippet:

from("azure-storage-queue://storageAccount/messageQueue?accessKey=yourAccessKey").
to("file://queuedirectory");

Advanced Azure Storage Queue configuration

If your Camel Application is running behind a firewall or if you need to have more control over the QueueServiceClient instance configuration, you can create your own instance:

StorageSharedKeyCredential credential = new StorageSharedKeyCredential("yourAccountName", "yourAccessKey");
String uri = String.format("https://%s.queue.core.windows.net", "yourAccountName");

QueueServiceClient client = new QueueServiceClientBuilder()
                          .endpoint(uri)
                          .credential(credential)
                          .buildClient();
// This is camel context
context.getRegistry().bind("client", client);

Then refer to this instance in your Camel azure-storage-queue component configuration:

from("azure-storage-queue://cameldev/queue1?serviceClient=#client")
.to("file://outputFolder?fileName=output.txt&fileExist=Append");

Automatic detection of QueueServiceClient client in registry

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

Azure Storage Queue Producer operations

Camel Azure Storage Queue component provides a wide range of operations on the producer side:

Operations on the service level

For these operations, accountName is required.

Operation Description

listQueues

Lists the queues in the storage account that pass the filter starting at the specified marker.

Operations on the queue level

For these operations, accountName and queueName are required.

Operation Description

createQueue

Creates a new queue.

deleteQueue

Permanently deletes the queue.

clearQueue

Deletes all messages in the queue..

sendMessage

Default Producer Operation Sends a message with a given time-to-live and timeout period where the message is invisible in the queue. The message text is evaluated from the exchange message body. By default, if the queue doesn’t exist, it will create an empty queue first. If you want to disable this, set the config createQueue or header CamelAzureStorageQueueCreateQueue to false.

deleteMessage

Deletes the specified message in the queue.

receiveMessages

Retrieves up to the maximum number of messages from the queue and hides them from other operations for the timeout period. However, it will not dequeue the message from the queue due to reliability reasons.

peekMessages

Peek messages from the front of the queue up to the maximum number of messages.

updateMessage

Updates the specific message in the queue with a new message and resets the visibility timeout. The message text is evaluated from the exchange message body.

Refer to the example section in this page to learn how to use these operations into your camel application.

Consumer Examples

To consume a queue into a file component with maximum five messages in one batch, this can be done like this:

from("azure-storage-queue://cameldev/queue1?serviceClient=#client&maxMessages=5")
.to("file://outputFolder?fileName=output.txt&fileExist=Append");

Development Notes (Important)

When developing on this component, you will need to obtain your Azure accessKey to run the integration tests. In addition to the mocked unit tests, you will need to run the integration tests with every change you make or even client upgrade as the Azure client can break things even on minor versions upgrade. To run the integration tests, on this component directory, run the following maven command:

mvn verify -DaccountName=myacc -DaccessKey=mykey

Whereby accountName is your Azure account name and accessKey is the access key being generated from Azure portal.

Spring Boot Auto-Configuration

When using azure-storage-queue 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-azure-storage-queue-starter</artifactId>
  <version>x.x.x</version>
  <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version -->
</dependency>

The component supports 19 options, which are listed below.

camel.component.azure-storage-queue.access-key

Access key for the associated azure account name to be used for authentication with azure queue services.

String

camel.component.azure-storage-queue.autowired-enabled

Whether autowiring is enabled. This is used for automatic autowiring options (the option must be marked as autowired) by looking up in the registry to find if there is a single instance of matching type, which then gets configured on the component. This can be used for automatic configuring JDBC data sources, JMS connection factories, AWS Clients, etc.

Important: This is only possible if the 3rd party component allows Camel to be alerted if an exception was thrown. Some components handle this internally only, and therefore bridgeErrorHandler is not possible. In other situations we may improve the Camel component to hook into the 3rd party component and make this possible for future releases.

camel.component.azure-storage-queue.health-check-consumer-enabled

Used for enabling or disabling all consumer based health checks from this component.

true

Boolean

camel.component.azure-storage-queue.health-check-producer-enabled

Used for enabling or disabling all producer based health checks from this component. Notice: Camel has by default disabled all producer based health-checks. You can turn on producer checks globally by setting camel.health.producersEnabled=true.

true

Boolean

camel.component.azure-storage-queue.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.azure-storage-queue.max-messages

Maximum number of messages to get, if there are less messages exist in the queue than requested all the messages will be returned. If left empty only 1 message will be retrieved, the allowed range is 1 to 32 messages.

1

Integer

camel.component.azure-storage-queue.message-id

The ID of the message to be deleted or updated.

String

camel.component.azure-storage-queue.operation

Queue service operation hint to the producer.

QueueOperationDefinition

camel.component.azure-storage-queue.pop-receipt

Unique identifier that must match for the message to be deleted or updated.

String

camel.component.azure-storage-queue.service-client

Service client to a storage account to interact with the queue service. This client does not hold any state about a particular storage account but is instead a convenient way of sending off appropriate requests to the resource on the service. This client contains all the operations for interacting with a queue account in Azure Storage. Operations allowed by the client are creating, listing, and deleting queues, retrieving and updating properties of the account, and retrieving statistics of the account. The option is a com.azure.storage.queue.QueueServiceClient type.

QueueServiceClient

camel.component.azure-storage-queue.time-to-live

How long the message will stay alive in the queue. If unset the value will default to 7 days, if -1 is passed the message will not expire. The time to live must be -1 or any positive number. The format should be in this form: PnDTnHnMn.nS., e.g: PT20.345S — parses as 20.345 seconds, P2D — parses as 2 days However, in case you are using EndpointDsl/ComponentDsl, you can do something like Duration.ofSeconds() since these Java APIs are typesafe. The option is a java.time.Duration type.

Duration

camel.component.azure-storage-queue.timeout

An optional timeout applied to the operation. If a response is not returned before the timeout concludes a RuntimeException will be thrown. The option is a java.time.Duration type.

Duration

camel.component.azure-storage-queue.visibility-timeout

The timeout period for how long the message is invisible in the queue. The timeout must be between 1 seconds and 7 days. The format should be in this form: PnDTnHnMn.nS., e.g: PT20.345S — parses as 20.345 seconds, P2D — parses as 2 days However, in case you are using EndpointDsl/ComponentDsl, you can do something like Duration.ofSeconds() since these Java APIs are typesafe. The option is a java.time.Duration type.
