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.

The artifacts are published and ready for you to download either from the Apache mirrors or from the Central Maven repository. For more details please take a look at the release notes.
Many thanks to all who made this release possible.

The current Apache Camel website and documentation is currently undergoing work to be rewamped and updated for a modern website.

This work has been underway for a longer time. We kicked off the work by migrating the documentation of every Camel component
from the wiki system 
to the source code as ascii doc files. This allowed us during the build of the Apache Camel project to automatic
keep parts of the documentation 
up-to-date with the source code, such as when new options is added to components.
We then moved on migrate all the data formats, languages, and the EIP patterns.
This has been substantial work, as if you were to print all the Camel documentation then it would be more than 3000 sheets of papers.


At this point of time, we are about to draft up a new table of content (TOC) for the new Apache Camel documentation and user guide.
With the new TOC we 
will then re-work all the user guide documentation to be updated and focus on modern development with Camel.
In doing so we will grab the good parts of the existing (older) documentation, and in places needed, we will rewrite the documentation.


The new website and documentation has a new build system that is also worked. When this  system is ready we will have a new
staging URL where we will regularly 
publish the content, so users can follow the progress.

 
Because the new documentation will be in the source code and in ascii doc format, then it's easier for Camel users to contribute and help
- you can simply just 
submit patches as GitHub PRs.

Have patience with us, as it may take a couple of months for us to be ready to publish the staging URL.

We anticipate to have a new website and documentation ready in Q3 2018 (after the holiday season).
