For example if you have made a typo in one of the operators, then previously the parser would not be able to detect this, and cause the evaluation to be true. There is a few changes in the syntax which are no longer backwards compatible. When using <a shape="rect" href="simple.html">Simple</a> language as a <a shape="rect" href="predicate.html">Predicate</a> then the literal text <strong>must</strong> be enclosed
  in either single or double quotes. For example: <code>"${body} == 'Camel'"</code>. Notice how we have single quotes around the literal. The old style of using <code>"body"</code> and <code>"header.foo"</code> to refer to the message body and header is @deprecated, and its encouraged to always use ${ } tokens for the built-in functions.<br clear="none"> The range operator now requires the range to be in single quote as well as shown: <code>"${header.zip} between '30000..39999'"</code>.</p></div></div><p>To get the body of the in message: <code>"body"</code>, or <code>"in.body"</code> or <code>"${body}"</code>.</p><p>A complex expression must use ${ } placeholders, such as: <code>"Hello ${in.header.name} how are you?"</code>.</p><p>You can have multiple functions in the same expression: <code>"Hello ${in.header.name} this is ${in.header.me} speaking"</code>.<br clear="none"> However you can <strong>not</strong> nest functions in Camel 2.8.x or older (i.e. having another ${ } placehol
