Constant Expression Language

The Constant Expression Language is really just a way to specify constant strings as a type of expression.

Available as of Camel 1.5

Example usage

The setHeader element of the Spring DSL can utilize a constant expression like:

  <from uri="seda:a"/>
  <setHeader headerName="theHeader">
    <constant>the value</constant>        
  <to uri="mock:b"/>     

in this case, the Message coming from the seda:a Endpoint will have 'theHeader' header set to the constant value 'the value'.

And the same example using Java DSL:

from("seda:a").setHeader("theHeader", constant("the value")).to("mock:b");


The Constant language is part of camel-core.
