Chapter 311. String Encoding DataFormat

Available as of Camel version 2.12

The String Data Format is a textual based format that supports encoding.

311.1. Options

The String Encoding dataformat supports 2 options which are listed below.

NameDefaultJava TypeDescription

charset

 

String

Sets an encoding to use. Will by default use the JVM platform default charset.

contentTypeHeader

false

Boolean

Whether the data format should set the Content-Type header with the type from the data format if the data format is capable of doing so. For example application/xml for data formats marshalling to XML, or application/json for data formats marshalling to JSon etc.

311.2. Marshal

In this example we marshal the file content to String object in UTF-8 encoding.

from("file://data.csv").marshal().string("UTF-8").to("jms://myqueue");

311.3. Unmarshal

In this example we unmarshal the payload from the JMS queue to a String object using UTF-8 encoding, before its processed by the newOrder processor.

from("jms://queue/order").unmarshal().string("UTF-8").processRef("newOrder");

311.4. Dependencies

This data format is provided in camel-core so no additional dependencies is needed.
