Managing Camel Routes With JMX APIs

· Integration Zone

The Integration Zone is brought to you in partnership with CA Technologies.  Build APIs from SQL and NoSQL data sources in seconds. Read the Creating REST APIs white paper.

Here is a quick example of how to programmatically access Camel MBeans to monitor and manipulate routes...

first, get a connection to a JMX server (assumes localhost, port 1099, no auth)
note, always cache the connection for subsequent requests (can cause memory utilization issues otherwise)

JMXServiceURL url = new JMXServiceURL("service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://localhost:1099/jmxrmi");
JMXConnector jmxc = JMXConnectorFactory.connect(url);
MBeanServerConnection server = jmxc.getMBeanServerConnection();

use the following to iterate over all routes and retrieve statistics (state, exchanges, etc)...

ObjectName objName = new ObjectName("org.apache.camel:type=routes,*");
List<ObjectName> cacheList = new LinkedList(server.queryNames(objName, null));
for (Iterator<ObjectName> iter = cacheList.iterator(); iter.hasNext();)
{
    objName = iter.next();
    String keyProps = objName.getCanonicalKeyPropertyListString();
    ObjectName objectInfoName = new ObjectName("org.apache.camel:" + keyProps);
    String routeId = (String) server.getAttribute(objectInfoName, "RouteId");
    String description = (String) server.getAttribute(objectInfoName, "Description");
    String state = (String) server.getAttribute(objectInfoName, "State");
    ...
}

use the following to execute operations against a Camel route (stop,start, etc)

ObjectName objName = new ObjectName("org.apache.camel:type=routes,*");
List<ObjectName> cacheList = new LinkedList(server.queryNames(objName, null));
for (Iterator<ObjectName> iter = cacheList.iterator(); iter.hasNext();)
{
    objName = iter.next();
    String keyProps = objName.getCanonicalKeyPropertyListString();
    if(keyProps.contains(routeID))
    {
        ObjectName objectRouteName = new ObjectName("org.apache.camel:" + keyProps);
        Object[] params = {};
        String[] sig = {};
        server.invoke(objectRouteName, operationName, params, sig);
        return;
    }
}

 summary

These APIs can easily be used to build a web or command line based tool to support remote Camel management features. All of these features are available via the JMX console and Camel does provide a web console to support some management/monitoring tasks.
