Subject [jira] [Commented] (CAMEL-10795) PingCheck API
Date Wed, 22 Feb 2017 09:12:44 GMT


Roland Huss commented on CAMEL-10795:

[~davsclaus] aggreed to no overengineer (but leave some empty which could be filled by extending,
not changing. even when these spots never will be 'filled').

For the username / password thing we would report both back both parameters as be the source
of the problem (when getting back a 401 from the backend which also not tell us which of those
parameters is wrong). I don't see a security problem here (actually thats why I opt for multiple
parameter keys per error to avoid this). (in this example: description == "Wrong credentials",
parameters == [ "user", "password" ] if this connector use these fields for authentication).

This method is also used for plain validation, so not only connection checking (that's why
I'd like to call 'verifier' imply both validation + checking). 

When we allow for multiple parameter keys to be returned in errors we also help in reporting
back complex validation logic errors (like "authtoken" _or_ "user" / "password" needs to be

> 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)
> {code}
> interface Pingable {
>     PingResult ping(Map<String, String> config);
>     boolean canPing(Map<String, String> config);
> }
> class PingResult {
>  private boolean isSuccess();
>  private String errorMessage();
> }
> {code}
> 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, String>
> httpUri=http://myserver/foo/bar
> 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.
