The xmpp: component implements an XMPP (Jabber) transport.
Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:
The component supports both room based and private person-person conversations.
The component supports both producer and consumer (you can get messages from XMPP or send messages to XMPP). Consumer mode supports rooms starting from camel-1.5.0.
You can append query options to the URI in the following format, ?option=value&option=value&...
| Name || Description |
| room || If this option is specified, the component will connect to MUC (Multi User Chat). Usually, the domain name for MUC is different from the login domain. For example, if you are email@example.com and want to join the krypton room, then the room URL is firstname.lastname@example.org. Note the conference part.|
Starting from camel-1.5.0, it is not a requirement to provide the full room JID. If the room parameter does not contain the @ symbol, the domain part will be discovered and added by Camel
| user || User name (without server name). If not specified, anonymous login will be attempted. |
| password || Password. |
| resource || XMPP resource. The default is Camel. |
| createAccount || If true, an attempt to create an account will be made. Default is false. |
| participant || JID (Jabber ID) of person to receive messages. room parameter has precedence over participant. |
| nickname || Use nickname when joining room. If room is specified and nickname is not, user will be used for the nickname. |
| serviceName || Camel 1.6/2.0 The name of the service you are connecting to. For Google Talk, this would be gmail.com. |
Headers and setting Subject or Language
Camel sets the message IN headers as properties on the XMPP message. You can configure a HeaderFilterStategy if you need custom filtering of headers.
In Camel 1.6.2/2.0 the Subject and Language of the XMPP message are also set if they are provided as IN headers.
