Creating a new Spring based Camel Route

If you want to create your own version of the Spring Example you can use the maven archetype.

mvn archetype:generate                   \
  -DarchetypeGroupId=org.apache.camel.archetypes  \
  -DarchetypeArtifactId=camel-archetype-spring   \
  -DarchetypeVersion=1.5.0             \
  -DgroupId=myGroupId                  \

Note: -DarchetypeVersion=1.5.0 is the version number of Camel. Change this to the current version of Camel you are using.

When using camel archetypes, make sure your package name is not org.apache.camel (or a sub package of this) as this will instruct Camel to search in its own packages for your routes. This can also cause Camel not to start, as shown in CAMEL-1197. You can change your package name by specifying -Dpackage

This will create a maven project which can be run immediately via the Camel Maven Plugin as follows

cd myArtifactId
mvn camel:run

The configuration file is in src/main/resources/META-INF/spring/camel-context.xml.

The routing rules lives at src/main/java/myGroupId/
