Subject Re: Where exception handling should set a handled exception?
Date Wed, 25 Feb 2009 13:43:20 GMT
Hi Roman

Could you add a route example to that.
AFAIR this is *only* with the try .. handle DSLs ?

I can enlighten that on the DeadLetterChannel we store previoysly
occured exception as a property when we do redelivery.
There is a constant KEY for it on the Exchange (Camel 2.0)

    String EXCEPTION_CAUGHT = "CamelExceptionCaught";
