MSV Component

The MSV component performs XML validation of the message body using the MSV Library and any of the supported XML schema languages, such as XML Schema or RelaxNG XML Syntax.

The following example shows how to configure a route from endpoint direct:start which then goes to one of two endpoints, either mock:valid or mock:invalid based on whether or not the XML matches the given RelaxNG XML Schema (which is supplied on the classpath).

<camelContext xmlns="">
        <from uri="direct:start"/>
            <to uri="msv:org/apache/camel/component/validator/msv/schema.rng"/>
            <to uri="mock:valid"/>

                <to uri="mock:invalid"/>
                <to uri="mock:finally"/>
