Chapter 34. DNS
Available as of Camel 2.7
This is an additional component for Camel to run DNS queries, using DNSJava. The component is a thin layer on top of DNSJava. The component offers the following operations:
- To resolve a domain by its IP address.
- To look up information about the domain.
- To run DNS queries.
Requires SUN JVM
The DNSJava library requires running on the SUN JVM. If you use Apache ServiceMix or Apache Karaf, you'll need to adjust the
etc/jre.propertiesfile, to add
sun.net.spi.nameserviceto the list of Java platform packages exported. The server will need restarting before this change takes effect.
Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their
pom.xmlfor this component:
<dependency> <groupId>org.apache.camel</groupId> <artifactId>camel-dns</artifactId> <version>x.x.x</version> <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version --> </dependency>
