Subject [jira] Created: (CAMEL-3547) Custom "absorbing" PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer
Date Sun, 16 Jan 2011 16:30:43 GMT
Custom "absorbing" PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer

                 Key: CAMEL-3547
             Project: Camel
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: camel-core
            Reporter: Dan Checkoway
            Priority: Minor

I find Camel's property placeholder support clumsy.  I already use Spring's PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer,
and I feel like Camel should be able to harness that.  I realize Spring doesn't make it easy
to access those properties, but I have come up with a way to enable Camel to use them...

By simply extending PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer, we will be able to intercept and absorb
the properties that Spring has access to:

import java.util.Properties;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.config.ConfigurableListableBeanFactory;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.config.PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer;

public class CamelPropertyPlaceholderConfigurer extends PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer {
    private final Properties properties = new Properties();
    protected void processProperties(ConfigurableListableBeanFactory beanFactory, Properties
props) {
        super.processProperties(beanFactory, props);
        // "Absorb" all properties that pass through so we can expose them later

    /** Expose all absorbed properties */
    public final Properties getProperties() {
        return properties;

It means users who want to take advantage of this would need to instantiate this instead of
the stock PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer, but that's no problem:

  <bean class="org.apache.camel.impl.CamelPropertyPlaceholderConfigurer">

That way, you wouldn't need to declare a "duplicating" <propertyPlaceholer> in the CamelContext.
 What do you think, is this feasible?
