Date Tue, 07 Feb 2017 08:46:41 GMT
Claus Ibsen created CAMEL-10795:

             Summary: PingCheck API
                 Key: CAMEL-10795
             Project: Camel
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: camel-core
            Reporter: Claus Ibsen
             Fix For: 2.19.0

Related to CAMEL-10026 about Health Check API

We need some way for Camel components to be able to more easily validate if they can connect
to their remote system.

And for that the user must configure the Camel component/endpoint accordingly with details
such as username/password/tokens/ other beans etc.

How this is done varies from Camel component to component, but most of them uses endpoint

So we may want to introduce some interface (whether the name Pingable is a good name is up
for discussion)

interface Pingable {
    PingResult ping(Map<String, String> config);
    boolean canPing(Map<String, String> config);

class PingResult {
 private boolean isSuccess();
 private String errorMessage();

This API is just a little suggestion.

The parameters should ideally be type less, eg Map<String, String> as the user configures
this in endpoint uris, XML DSL etc. and therefore we should be able to do this without having
to use Java code per see.

Also we may want to have canPing as a method to check if the component can accept the ping
or not. In some cases it may not be able to do the ping.

For example camel-http component would just require the following information in the Map<String,


Where httpUri is the name of the option accordingly to the table at

And then it depends on each Camel component how they do the ping check, the http component
may do a HTTP HEAD or a HTTP GET etc and check the HTTP response code etc.

Notice this is not intended entirely for runtime health check, but for validating/testing
Camel components can work with the user given configuration to connect to the remote system.
