Basic Camel and HTTPS

Ever wonder how you can set up and hit a basic https endpoint with camel? These directions are sure to help!

First, configure your RouteBuilder. This RouteBuilder calls for two methods. Those will be defined down below. It then polls a jetty https endpoint. When the jetty endpoint gets a hit, it sends a request to https endpoint deployed elsewhere.

public class MyRouteBuilder extends RouteBuilder{
public void configure() {
configureJetty();
configureHttp4();
from("jetty:https://0.0.0.0:8080/sample/?matchOnUriPrefix=true")
.to("https4://example.com:8081/?q=ssl&bridgeEndpoint=true&throwExceptionOnFailure=false");
}
}

Next, we need to define the SSL configuration for the jetty endpoint.

private void configureJetty() {
KeyStoreParameters ksp = new KeyStoreParameters();
ksp.setResource("\Projects\example\myJks.jks");
ksp.setPassword("password");
KeyManagersParameters kmp = new KeyManagersParameters();
kmp.setKeyStore(ksp); kmp.setKeyPassword("keyPassword");
SSLContextParameters scp = new SSLContextParameters();
scp.setKeyManagers(kmp);
JettyHttpComponent jettyComponent = getContext().getComponent("jetty", JettyHttpComponent.class);
jettyComponent.setSslContextParameters(scp);
}

Finally, we need to define the SSL configuration to send to the https endpoint.

private void configureHttp4() {
KeyStoreParameters ksp = new KeyStoreParameters();
ksp.setResource("\Projects\example\exampleCa.jks");
ksp.setPassword("password");
TrustManagersParameters tmp = new TrustManagersParameters();
tmp.setKeyStore(ksp);
SSLContextParameters scp = new SSLContextParameters();
scp.setTrustManagers(tmp);
HttpComponent httpComponent = getContext().getComponent("https4", HttpComponent.class);
httpComponent.setSslContextParameters(scp);
}
