Re: Math Operation in Loop

Hi Weiqiang,
the simple language can not do what you want, you can look at the
supported operations in the docs[1].

A best practice would be to create a standard Java method to perform
that and use the `method` DSL and set a header value, you can use also
dynamic expressions in Groovy or some other supported expression
language (look at that documentation).

For example:

public class Utilities {
    public static int myExpression(final Exchange exchange) {
        return exchange.getProperty("CamelLoopIndex", Integer.class) * 10 + 1;

And in the route DSL:

GroovyLanguage.groovy("exchange.properties.CamelLoopIndex * 10 + 1"))
      .setHeader("methodExpressionValue", method(Utilities.class,
