Subject Camel CXF RS: New Simple binding style for JAX-RS
Date Sun, 31 Mar 2013 20:10:55 GMT
Hi users,

As you may know, Camel has supported JAX-RS under the camel-cxfrs component
for a long time now.

However, the support has been rather low-level, requiring the user to
manually process the MessageContentsList object coming into the route. Thus
tightly coupling the route logic with the method signature and parameter
indices of the JAX-RS operation. Somewhat inelegant, difficult and

As of Camel 2.11 (soon to be released), there's a new Simple binding style
performing with these improvements:

  * JAX-RS Parameters (@HeaderParam, @QueryParam, etc.) are injected as IN
message headers.
  * The request entity (POJO or other type) becomes the IN message body.
  * Binary @Multipart body parts become attachments, supporting
DataHandler, InputStream, DataSource and CXF's Attachment class.
  * Non-binary @Multipart body parts are mapped as IN message headers.

The Response mapping has also improved, now recognising custom Responses,
the Exchange.HTTP_RESPONSE_CODE header, and more.

This binding style can be activated by setting the bindingStyle parameter
to 'SimpleConsumer'.

Examples and more info here [1]. Or here [2] for the impatient (the Camel
site takes a while to update from the Wiki).
