Re: retrieve context variables from cbean

Hi,
Sorry for the delay, which version do you use? After the Talend upgrade, there is a new component called -cBeanRegister in Talend 5.2 and you can set the "Specify Arguments"in it to retrieve context variables directly. If you have the lower version, you need use cSetHeader and cBean.

Thanks for your answer!
I use 5.1, so I can use the cSetHeader + cBean method.
Is there a way to get information back from a bean into a route (header or context) ?

Re: retrieve context variables from cbean

Hello Laci,
Context variables are intended for configuration purposes and not to dynamically pass data somewhere else, so there are no many means to set context values them in the mediation route.
If you pass an Exchange variable into a bean (a processor), you have access to all information - to the current camel context, in and out messages. What else you need..

Hi Gabriel
thanks for your answer.
I tried to set a header property in my bean (theExchange.getIn().setHeader("testProperty", "testValue");
but I don't see that property in the following components.
How can I do this?
Or is there another way to do it?
Thanks
Laci
