Since we're on a major migration process of this website, some component documents here are out of sync right now. In the meantime you may want to look at the asciidoc in the repository:

Apache Camel ™ is a versatile open-source integration framework based on known Enterprise Integration Patterns.

Camel empowers you to define routing and mediation rules in a variety of domain-specific languages, including a Java-based Fluent API, Spring or Blueprint XML Configuration files, and a Scala DSL. This means you get smart completion of routing rules in your IDE, whether in a Java, Scala or XML editor.

Apache Camel uses URIs to work directly with any kind of Transport or messaging model such as HTTP, ActiveMQ, JMS, JBI, SCA, MINA or CXF, as well as pluggable Components and Data Format options. Apache Camel is a small library with minimal dependencies for easy embedding in any Java application. Apache Camel lets you work with the same API regardless which kind of Transport is used - so learn the API once and you can interact with all the Components provided out-of-box.

Apache Camel provides support for Bean Binding and seamless integration with popular frameworks such as CDISpring, Blueprint and Guice. Camel also has extensive support for unit testing your routes.

The following projects can leverage Apache Camel as a routing and mediation engine:

  • Apache ServiceMix - a popular distributed open source ESB and JBI container
  • Apache ActiveMQ - a mature, widely used open source message broker
  • Apache CXF - a smart web services suite (JAX-WS and JAX-RS)
  • Apache Karaf - a small OSGi based runtime in which applications can be deployed
  • Apache MINA - a high-performance NIO-driven networking framework

So don't get the hump - try Camel today! (smile)

Too many buzzwords - what exactly is Camel?

Okay, so the description above is technology focused.
There's a great discussion about Camel at Stack Overflow. We suggest you view the post, read the comments, and browse the suggested links for more details.

Announcing Apache Camel K

After some months of brainstorming with the community and a bit more than
one month of development, our Camel K project has reached a good level of
stability and Nicola Ferraro published the first blog post about it yesterday.

For those of you who haven't heard of Camel K, it's now a subproject of
Apache Camel (https://github.com/apache/camel-k) with the target of
building a lightweight runtime for running integration code directly on
cloud platforms like Kubernetes and OpenShift. It was inspired by
"serverless" principles and it will also target Knative shortly.

With the exception of the runtime code, that remains the good old Apache Camel
Java framework with 200+ components and full of EIPs, most of the
"operator" code in Camel K is written in Go. But the new language has not
stopped many adventurer Camel developers that have actively contributed to
the project during last month. We still have a long way in front of us,
let's continue to make Camel awesome!

So, please.. check the project out! Spread it to the world!
And provide your feedback, so we can make it always better. We love any
kind of contribution!

For more details then check out the blog article by Nicola, and watch the 7
minute video, showing Camel K in action.
