Chapter 190. XStream

XStream Component

The XStream component provides the XStream data format, which uses the XStream library to marshal and unmarshal Java objects to and from XML. For example, you can convert a message body to XML using the xstream() DSL command, as follows:
CamelContext camelctx = new DefaultCamelContext();
camelctx.addRoutes(new RouteBuilder() {
    @Override
    public void configure() throws Exception {
        from("direct:start")
        .marshal().xstream();
    }
});

camelctx.start();
try {
    ProducerTemplate producer = camelctx.createProducerTemplate();
    String customer = producer.requestBody("direct:start", new Customer("John", "Doe"), String.class);
} finally {
    camelctx.stop();
}

Camel on EAP deployment

This component is supported by the Camel on EAP (Wildfly Camel) framework, which offers a simplified deployment model on the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) container. For details of this model, see chapter "Apache Camel on JBoss EAP" in "Deploying into a Web Server".
