Subject [jira] [Commented] (CAMEL-4564) Make dynamicRouter conformant to the pattern
Date Tue, 22 Oct 2013 08:37:42 GMT


Claus Ibsen commented on CAMEL-4564:

What do you mean with "return a result". 

If you use recipient list to send to 1 endpoint (you can send to 2+ if you want). The output
from routing to that endpoint is used as output from the recipient list - it would be the
same as you are using .to("someEndpointUriHere"). And if the MEP is InOnly or InOut then it
handles that as well.

If you have 2+ endpoints you can use the aggregation strategy to merge into a single result.
It uses by default the org.apache.camel.processor.aggregate.UseLatestAggregationStrategy

> Currently the dynamic router loops over evaluating the expression and sending to the
endpoint till the expression returns null.
> This is not really what the EIP dynamic router says. The pattern says "the Dynamic Router
evaluates all rules and routes the message to the recipient whose rules are fulfilled".
> So for me this sounds like we should only send to one endpoint.
> So my proposal is to change the dynamicRouter so it simply evaluates the expression as
a uri and routes to this destination if it is not null else it simply passes the exchange
to the next processor.
> As some people may use the loop functionality I propose to add a new DSL element that
mimics the current behaviour. A first proposal for a name is .loopTo(Expression) . So this
means loop and send to the endpoint specified by the expression.
