Subject [jira] Commented: (CAMEL-3429) Extend DSL with more header filtering constructs
Date Mon, 03 Jan 2011 13:48:47 GMT


Richard Kettelerij commented on CAMEL-3429:

Thanks for integrating Claus. I did actually look into the use of String[] in the Spring DSL
and noticed a few other classes were also using array's a attributes, so I assumed it just

>    Affects Versions: 2.5.0

> Currently the DSL offers the following methods:
> - {{removeHeader(name)}} which removes a single header
> - {{removeHeaders(pattern)}} remove one or more headers based on a pattern (since 2.3)
> The attached patch extends the DSL with the following methods:
> - {{removeHeaders(name...)}} removes the headers in the given a vararg parameter. 
> - {{removeHeadersExcept(pattern)}} removes all headers except for the ones matching the
given pattern (opposite of {{removeHeaders(pattern)}})
> - {{removeHeadersExcept(name...)}} removes all headers except for the ones in the given
vararg parameter (opposite of {{removeHeaders(name)}})
> The rationale for the removeHeadersExcept() method is that in many cases you want to
take a _defensive_ approach with regard to header propagation.
> Sometimes you may want to remove _every_ header on the current message, in that case
just call removeHeadersExcept() with no arguments.
> In other cases you want to propagate only the "id" header received through the servlet/jetty
component (as a query parameter). In that case call
> removeHeadersExcept("id") to preserve the "id" header, while preventing other query parameters
(and standard HTTP headers) to flow down your route.
