Apache Camel CXF gives you “org.apache.cxf.service.factory.ServiceConstructionException: Could not find portType named {<some namespace>}<some service>PortType”

I got this when implementing a SOAP service from a provided wsdl. I hope I would not done the same mistake if I wrote the wsdl myself, but we will never know for sure 😉

Now to the solution. You probably have something like this in your code (Apache Camel in a SpringBoot application)

public class CurrencyRoute extends RouteBuilder {

    public void configure() throws Exception {
            .log("Body: ${body}");

    private CxfEndpoint currencyLookupAdapterEndpoint() {
        final CxfEndpoint cxfEndpoint = new CxfEndpoint();

        // Set the Service Class

        cxfEndpoint.setProperties(new HashMap<>());
        cxfEndpoint.getProperties().put("schema-validation-enabled", "true");
        return cxfEndpoint;

In the currencies.wsdl I had a CurrenciesResponderService and a CurrenciesResponderInterface.
If I choose the CurrenciesResponderService.class as the ServiceClass I got the error below:

org.apache.cxf.service.factory.ServiceConstructionException: Could not find portType named {<some namespace>}<some service>PortType

and if I choose the CurrenciesResponderInterface.class instead the application started without the error 🙂

Tested on Apache Camel v3.17 and SpringBoot v3.2.0

JUnit 5 assert log entries in a SpringBoot application

Asserting log entries in JUnit Jupiter is not as straight forward as one might want, but after some digging I found a way that worked for me. It should also me said that doing this i Jupiter is far easier than in previous versions of JUnit

The trick here is to use the SpringBoot OutputCaptureExtension on you test class. This can be accomplished with the @ExtendWith annotation in SpringBoot. This will inject a CapturedOutput object with output from our application

Example test class:

import org.springframework.boot.test.system.CapturedOutput;
import org.springframework.boot.test.system.OutputCaptureExtension;

import static org.hamcrest.MatcherAssert.assertThat;
import static org.hamcrest.CoreMatchers.containsString;

public void testHappyCaseSendDataToSystem(CapturedOutput output) throws Exception {

  MockEndpoint mock = camelContext.getEndpoint("mock:senddataToSystem", MockEndpoint.class);

  // Setting expectations

  // Invoking consumer
  producerTemplate.sendBody("direct:start", null);

  // Asserting mock is satisfied

  // Assert log message
  assertThat(output.getOut(), containsString("LogMessage=Completed"));

Tested on SpringBoot v3.2.0 and JUnit 5.10.1

Camel-K: Add multiple custom classes via .jar

I came across a use case where we needed a MapForce mapping in our Camel-K flow. MapForce generated Java code consists of many classes and it becomes overly cumbersome to add them all to the kamel run command. To solve this problem we put all the MapForce generated code into a .jar file and then added it to our cluster and referenced it in our kamel run command

1. First we made a .jar file out of the generated java code. For this we use the jar command that can be found in most java developer kits

jar cvf MapFormatAToFormatB.jar com/ se/

This creates a .jar file called MapFormatAToFormatB.jar with the contents of the generated code com/ and se/. Mapforce puts general classes into com/ package and our custom classes into your own packages, in our case se/.

2. Create a ConfigMap to hold our .jar so that Camel-K-Operator can use it

kubectl create configmap map-formata-to-formatb --from-file=MapFormatAToFormatB.jar

3. Reference the configmap in you kamel run command

kamel run src/main/java/myApp --resource configmap:map-formata-to-formatb

That´s it. In our code we reference these classes the same way we should have if the where part of our code base

import se.myorg.integration.MapFormatAToFormatB;

import org.apache.camel.builder.RouteBuilder;

public class AmbuReg extends RouteBuilder {
    public void configure() throws Exception {

Tested on Camel-K-Operator v1.11.1 and Kubernetes v1.24.11
