Subject FW: Meaning of Exchange Property CamelFailureHandled
Date Wed, 18 May 2016 17:42:35 GMT
Hi Camel friends,

Can anybody explain the meaning of the Exchange Property "CamelFailureHandled"? Especially,
what's the difference to "CamelExceptionHandled" and "CamelErrorHandlerHandled"?

I don't know, if it's a bug, but I found the following method in RedeliveryErrorHandler (
2.16.2), which is called in method prepareExchangeAfterFailure, if the failure is not handled:

    private void prepareExchangeAfterFailureNotHandled(Exchange exchange) {
        log.trace("This exchange is not handled or continued so its marked as failed: {}",
        // exception not handled, put exception back in the exchange
        exchange.setProperty(Exchange.ERRORHANDLER_HANDLED, Boolean.FALSE);
        exchange.setException(exchange.getProperty(Exchange.EXCEPTION_CAUGHT, Exception.class));
        // and put failure endpoint back as well
        exchange.setProperty(Exchange.FAILURE_ENDPOINT, exchange.getProperty(Exchange.TO_ENDPOINT));
        // and store the route id so we know in which route we failed
        UnitOfWork uow = exchange.getUnitOfWork();
        if (uow != null && uow.getRouteContext() != null) {
            exchange.setProperty(Exchange.FAILURE_ROUTE_ID, uow.getRouteContext().getRoute().getId());

I wonder, why the "CamelFailureHandled" is not removed like the  "CamelErrorHandlerHandled".
At the beginning of the method prepareExchangeAfterFailure in method setFailureHandled the
exception is removed from the exchange and the property "CamelFailureHandled" is set. In my
point-of-view both methods should be symmetric and CamelFailureHandled should also be removed
in prepareExchangeAfterFailureNotHandled. What do you think?
