DataSet Component

Testing of distributed and asynchronous processing is notoriously difficult. The Mock, Test and DataSet endpoints work great with the Camel Testing Framework to simplify your unit and integration testing using Enterprise Integration Patterns and Camel's large range of Components together with the powerful Bean Integration.

The DataSet component provides a mechanism to easily perform load & soak testing of your system. It works by allowing you to create DataSet instances both as a source of messages and as a way to assert that the data set is received.

Camel will use the throughput logger when sending dataset's.

URI format

Where name is used to find the DataSet instance in the Registry

Camel ships with a support implementation of org.apache.camel.component.dataset.DataSet, the org.apache.camel.component.dataset.DataSetSupport class, that can be used as a base for implementing your own DataSet. Camel also ships with some implementations that can be used for testing:  org.apache.camel.component.dataset.SimpleDataSetorg.apache.camel.component.dataset.ListDataSet and org.apache.camel.component.dataset.FileDataSet, all of which extend DataSetSupport.

Options

Option

Default

Description

produceDelay

3

Allows a delay in ms to be specified, which causes producers to pause in order to simulate slow producers. Uses a minimum of 3 ms delay unless you set this option to -1 to force no delay at all.

consumeDelay

0

Allows a delay in ms to be specified, which causes consumers to pause in order to simulate slow consumers.

preloadSize

0

Sets how many messages should be preloaded (sent) before the route completes its initialization.

initialDelay

1000

Camel 2.1: Time period in millis to wait before starting sending messages.

minRate

0

Wait until the DataSet contains at least this number of messages

dataSetIndex lenient

Camel 2.17: Controls the behavior of the CamelDataSetIndex header. The supported values are strict, lenient and off. The default behavior prior to Camel 2.17 can be restored using dataSetIndex=strict

For consumers:
- strict or lenient => The CamelDataSetIndex header will always be set
- off => The CamelDataSetIndex header will not be set

For producers:
- strict => The CamelDataSetIndex header must be present and the value of the header will be verified
- lenient => If the CamelDataSetIndex header is present, the value of the header will be verified. If the header is not present, it will be set.
- off => If the CamelDataSetIndex header is present, the value of the header will not be verified. If the header is not present, it will not be set.

You can append query options to the URI in the following format, ?option=value&option=value&...

Configuring DataSet

Camel will lookup in the Registry for a bean implementing the DataSet interface. So you can register your own DataSet as:

Example

For example, to test that a set of messages are sent to a queue and then consumed from the queue without losing any messages:

The above would look in the Registry to find the foo DataSet instance which is used to create the messages.

Then you create a DataSet implementation, such as using the SimpleDataSet as described below, configuring things like how big the data set is and what the messages look like etc.  

 

DataSetSupport (abstract class)

The DataSetSupport abstract class is a nice starting point for new DataSets, and provides some useful features to derived classes.

Properties on DataSetSupport

Property

Type

Default

Description

defaultHeaders

Map<String,Object>

null

Specifies the default message body. For SimpleDataSet it is a constant payload; though if you want to create custom payloads per message, create your own derivation of DataSetSupport.

outputTransformer

org.apache.camel.Processor

null

 

size

long

10

Specifies how many messages to send/consume.

reportCount long -1 Specifies the number of messages to be received before reporting progress. Useful for showing progress of a large load test. If < 0, then size / 5, if is 0 then size, else set to reportCount value.

SimpleDataSet

The SimpleDataSet extends DataSetSupport, and adds a default body.

Additional Properties on SimpleDataSet

Property

Type

Default

Description

defaultBody

Object

<hello>world!</hello>

Specifies the default message body. By default, the SimpleDataSet produces the same constant payload for each exchange. If you want to customize the payload for each exchange, create a Camel Processor and configure the SimpleDataSet to use it by setting the outputTransformer property.

ListDataSet (Camel 2.17)

The ListDataSet extends DataSetSupport, and adds a list of default bodies.

Additional Properties on ListDataSet

Property

Type

Default

Description

defaultBodies

List<Object>

empty LinkedList<Object>

Specifies the default message body. By default, the ListDataSet selects a constant payload from the list of defaultBodies using the CamelDataSetIndex. If you want to customize the payload, create a Camel Processor and configure the ListDataSet to use it by setting the outputTransformer property.

size

long

the size of the defaultBodies list

Specifies how many messages to send/consume. This value can be different from the size of the defaultBodies list. If the value is less than the size of the defaultBodies list, some of the list elements will not be used. If the value is greater than the size of the defaultBodies list, the payload for the exchange will be selected using the modulus of the CamelDataSetIndex and the size of the defaultBodies list (i.e. CamelDataSetIndex % defaultBodies.size() )

FileDataSet (Camel 2.17)

The SimpleDataSet extends ListDataSet, and adds support for loading the bodies from a file.

Additional Properties on FileDataSet

Property

Type

Default

Description

sourceFile

File

null

Specifies the source file for payloads

delimiter

String

\z

Specifies the delimiter pattern used by a java.util.Scanner to split the file into multiple payloads.
