The idea was to cover 95% of the common use cases when you need a little bit of expression based script in your Camel routes.</p><p>However for much more complex use cases you are generally recommended to choose a more expressive and powerful language such as:</p><ul><li><a shape="rect" href="spel.html">SpEL</a></li><li><a shape="rect" href="mvel.html">Mvel</a></li><li><a shape="rect" href="groov

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 are a few changes in the syntax which are no longer backwards c
 ompatible. 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>"<strong>${body} == 'Camel'</strong>"</code>. Notice how we have single quotes around the literal. The old style of using <code>"<strong>body</strong>"</code> and <code>"<strong>header.foo</strong>"</code> to refer to the message body and header is <strong><code>@deprecated</code></strong>, and it is encouraged to always use&#160;<strong><code>${ }</code></strong> 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>"<strong>${header.zip} between '30000..39999'</strong>"</code>.</p></div></div><p>To get the body of the in message: <strong><code>body</code></strong>, or <strong><code>in.body</code></strong> or <strong><code>${body}</code></strong>.</p><p>A co
 mplex expression must use&#160;<strong><code>${ }</code></strong> placeholders, such as: <strong><code>Hello ${in.header.name} how are you?</code></strong>.</p><p>You can have multiple functions in the same expression: <code>"<strong>Hello ${in.header.name} this is ${in.header.me} speaking</strong>"</code>. However you can <em><strong>not</strong></em> nest functions in Camel 2.8.x or older e.g., having another&#160;<strong><code>${ }</code></strong> placeholder in an existing, is not allowed.
