Avialable in Camel 2.0
Camel allows Mvel to be used as an Expression or Predicate the DSL or Xml Configuration.
You could use Mvel to create an Predicate in a Message Filter or as an Expression for a Recipient List
You can use Mvel dot notation to invoke operations. If you for instance have a body that contains a POJO that has a getFamiliyName method then you can construct the syntax as follows:
For example you could use Mvel inside a Message Filter in XML
<mvel>request.headers.foo = 'bar'</mvel>
And the sample using Java DSL:
from("seda:foo").filter().mvel("request.headers.foo = 'bar'").to("seda:bar");
To use Mvel in your camel routes you need to add the a dependency on camel-mvel which implements the Mvel language.
If you use maven you could just add the following to your pom.xml, substituting the version number for the latest & greatest release (see the download page for the latest versions).
