Why system properties are not resolved with blueprint's external property-placeholder ?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Camel blueprint does not accept external properties. Either custom or predefined like karaf.etc. Need to pass external folder location specified as ether environment property or system property.
  • Hardcoded filepath in camel blueprint works fine.

 <ext:property-placeholder placeholder-prefix="$(" placeholder-suffix=")">
    <ext:property-placeholder placeholder-prefix="[[" placeholder-suffix="]]">
  • My blueprint definition for property-placeholder files works, but it is too restrictive for our needs, in that:
  • The files must live in ${fuse.home}/etc
  • They must end with ".cfg"
    • We need to move these files into a sub-folder of ${fuse.home}/etc AND want to change the extension to ".properties". Something like this...
