Tokenize

Since Camel 2.0

The tokenizer language is a built-in language in camel-core, which is most often used with the Split EIP to split a message using a token-based strategy.

The tokenizer language is intended to tokenize text documents using a specified delimiter pattern. It can also be used to tokenize XML documents with some limited capability. For a truly XML-aware tokenization, the use of the XML Tokenize language is recommended as it offers a faster, more efficient tokenization specifically for XML documents.

Tokenize Options

The Tokenize language supports 11 options, which are listed below.

Name Default Java Type Description

token

String

Required The (start) token to use as tokenizer, for example you can use the new line token. You can use simple language as the token to support dynamic tokens.

endToken

String

The end token to use as tokenizer if using start/end token pairs. You can use simple language as the token to support dynamic tokens.

inheritNamespaceTagName

String

To inherit namespaces from a root/parent tag name when using XML You can use simple language as the tag name to support dynamic names.

headerName

String

Name of header to tokenize instead of using the message body.

regex

Boolean

If the token is a regular expression pattern. The default value is false.

xml

Boolean

Whether the input is XML messages. This option must be set to true if working with XML payloads.

includeTokens

Boolean

Whether to include the tokens in the parts when using pairs The default value is false.

group

String

To group N parts together, for example to split big files into chunks of 1000 lines. You can use simple language as the group to support dynamic group sizes.

groupDelimiter

String

Sets the delimiter to use when grouping. If this has not been set then token will be used as the delimiter.

skipFirst

Boolean

To skip the very first element.

trim

Boolean

Whether to trim the value to remove leading and trailing whitespaces and line breaks.

Example

The following example shows how to take a request from the direct:a endpoint then split it into pieces using an Expression, then forward each piece to direct:b:

<route>
  <from uri="direct:a"/>
  <split>
    <tokenize token="\n"/>
    <to uri="direct:b"/>
  </split>
</route>

And in Java DSL:

from("direct:a")
    .split(body().tokenize("\n"))
        .to("direct:b");

Spring Boot Auto-Configuration

When using tokenize 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-core-starter</artifactId>
  <version>x.x.x</version>

Float

camel.resilience4j.minimum-number-of-calls

Configures the minimum number of calls which are required (per sliding window period) before the CircuitBreaker can calculate the error rate. For example, if minimumNumberOfCalls is 10, then at least 10 calls must be recorded, before the failure rate can be calculated.

Configures the size of the sliding window which is used to record the outcome of calls when the CircuitBreaker is closed. slidingWindowSize configures the size of the sliding window. Sliding window can either be count-based or time-based. If slidingWindowType is COUNT_BASED, the last slidingWindowSize calls are recorded and aggregated. If slidingWindowType is TIME_BASED, the calls of the last slidingWindowSize seconds are recorded and aggregated. The slidingWindowSize must be greater than 0. The minimumNumberOfCalls must be greater than 0. If the slidingWindowType is COUNT_BASED, the minimumNumberOfCalls cannot be greater than slidingWindowSize .

Integer

camel.resilience4j.slow-call-rate-threshold

Configures a threshold in percentage. The CircuitBreaker considers a call as slow when the call duration is greater than slowCallDurationThreshold Duration. When the percentage of slow calls is equal or greater the threshold, the CircuitBreaker transitions to open and starts short-circuiting calls. The threshold must be greater than 0 and not greater than 100. Default value is 100 percentage which means that all recorded calls must be slower than slowCallDurationThreshold.

Float

60

Integer

camel.resilience4j.writable-stack-trace-enabled

Enables writable stack traces. When set to false, Exception.getStackTrace returns a zero length array. This may be used to reduce log spam when the circuit breaker is open as the cause of the exceptions is already known (the circuit breaker is short-circuiting calls).

true

Boolean

camel.rest.api-component

The name of the Camel component to use as the REST API. If no API Component has been explicit configured, then Camel will lookup if there is a Camel component responsible for servicing and generating the REST API documentation, or if a org.apache.camel.spi.RestApiProcessorFactory is registered in the registry. If either one is found, then that is being used.

String

camel.rest.api-context-path

Sets a leading API context-path the REST API services will be using. This can be used when using components such as camel-servlet where the deployed web application is deployed using a context-path.

String

To use a specific hostname for the API documentation (such as swagger or openapi) This can be used to override the generated host with this configured hostname.

String

camel.rest.api-property

Allows to configure as many additional properties for the api documentation. For example set property api.title to my cool stuff.

Map

camel.rest.api-vendor-extension

Whether vendor extension is enabled in the Rest APIs. If enabled then Camel will include additional information as vendor extension (eg keys starting with x-) such as route ids, class names etc. Not all 3rd party API gateways and tools supports vendor-extensions when importing your API docs.

false

Boolean

camel.rest.binding-mode

Sets the binding mode to use. The default value is off.

RestBindingMode

camel.rest.client-request-validation

Whether to enable validation of the client request to check: 1) Content-Type header matches what the Rest DSL consumes; returns HTTP Status 415 if validation error. 2) Accept header matches what the Rest DSL produces; returns HTTP Status 406 if validation error. 3) Missing required data (query parameters, HTTP headers, body); returns HTTP Status 400 if validation error. 4) Parsing error of the message body (JSon, XML or Auto binding mode must be enabled); returns HTTP Status 400 if validation error.

false

Boolean

camel.rest.component

The Camel Rest component to use for the REST transport (consumer), such as netty-http, jetty, servlet, undertow. If no component has been explicit configured, then Camel will lookup if there is a Camel component that integrates with the Rest DSL, or if a org.apache.camel.spi.RestConsumerFactory is registered in the registry. If either one is found, then that is being used.

String

camel.rest.component-property

Allows to configure as many additional properties for the rest component in use.

Map

camel.rest.consumer-property

Allows to configure as many additional properties for the rest consumer in use.

Map

camel.rest.context-path

Sets a leading context-path the REST services will be using. This can be used when using components such as camel-servlet where the deployed web application is deployed using a context-path. Or for components such as camel-jetty or camel-netty-http that includes a HTTP server.

String

camel.rest.cors-headers

Allows to configure custom CORS headers.

Map

camel.rest.data-format-property

Allows to configure as many additional properties for the data formats in use. For example set property prettyPrint to true to have json outputted in pretty mode. The properties can be prefixed to denote the option is only for either JSON or XML and for either the IN or the OUT. The prefixes are: json.in. json.out. xml.in. xml.out. For example a key with value xml.out.mustBeJAXBElement is only for the XML data format for the outgoing. A key without a prefix is a common key for all situations.

Map

camel.rest.enable-cors

Whether to enable CORS headers in the HTTP response. The default value is false.

false

Boolean

camel.rest.endpoint-property

Allows to configure as many additional properties for the rest endpoint in use.

Map

camel.rest.host

The hostname to use for exposing the REST service.

String

camel.rest.host-name-resolver

If no hostname has been explicit configured, then this resolver is used to compute the hostname the REST service will be using.

RestHostNameResolver

camel.rest.inline-routes

Inline routes in rest-dsl which are linked using direct endpoints. By default, each service in Rest DSL is an individual route, meaning that you would have at least two routes per service (rest-dsl, and the route linked from rest-dsl). Enabling this allows Camel to optimize and inline this as a single route, however this requires to use direct endpoints, which must be unique per service. This option is default false.

false

Boolean

camel.rest.json-data-format

Name of specific json data format to use. By default jackson will be used. Important: This option is only for setting a custom name of the data format, not to refer to an existing data format instance.

String

camel.rest.port

The port number to use for exposing the REST service. Notice if you use servlet component then the port number configured here does not apply, as the port number in use is the actual port number the servlet component is using. eg if using Apache Tomcat its the tomcat http port, if using Apache Karaf its the HTTP service in Karaf that uses port 8181 by default etc. Though in those situations setting the port number here, allows tooling and JMX to know the port number, so its recommended to set the port number to the number that the servlet engine uses.

String

camel.rest.producer-api-doc

Sets the location of the api document the REST producer will use to validate the REST uri and query parameters are valid accordingly to the api document. The location of the api document is loaded from classpath by default, but you can use file: or http: to refer to resources to load from file or http url.

String

camel.rest.producer-component

Sets the name of the Camel component to use as the REST producer.

String

camel.rest.scheme

The scheme to use for exposing the REST service. Usually http or https is supported. The default value is http.

String

camel.rest.skip-binding-on-error-code

Whether to skip binding on output if there is a custom HTTP error code header. This allows to build custom error messages that do not bind to json / xml etc, as success messages otherwise will do.

false

Boolean

camel.rest.use-x-forward-headers

Whether to use X-Forward headers for Host and related setting. The default value is true.

true

Boolean

camel.rest.xml-data-format

Name of specific XML data format to use. By default jaxb will be used. Important: This option is only for setting a custom name of the data format, not to refer to an existing data format instance.

String
