A new plugin for the Intellij IDEA editor has been created.

The plugin adds support for Apache Camel providing completions for Camel endpoints.
In other words you can press ctrl + space when editing Camel endpoints and IDEA will
present you with a list of possible endpoint options you can use; the same for their values.

At present time the plugin supports Camel endpoints in Java, Groovy, Scala, XML, properties and yaml files.

You also have documentation at your finger tips. Position the cursor on any Camel endpoint
and activate quick doc (cltr + j) presenting a popup window with the Camel endpoint explained in more details.
For example every endpoint option is explain with their documentation.

The plugin is in active development and expected to improve over the near future.

The plugin is hosted on github where we can hack on the code to make the plugin awesome and great.
The intention is that the code eventually will be donated to Apache Camel.

But for now we can keep it separated so its easier because there is only the plugin code,
and not all the other Camel source as well.

Github project: https://github.com/davsclaus/camel-idea-plugin

You can find more details on the github page, where there is instructions how to install and try the plugin.
If you want to help hack on the code, then there is instructions how to setup your local IDEA environment
so you can compile and run/debug the source code.

There is also a issue tracker with tickets for stuff we need to work on.

Down the road we hope to extract parts of the plugin source code into a common camel-ide module which other IDEs can
use to offer similar functionality. For example we want to bring this to the Eclipse platform as well.

Anyone is welcome to help with the plugin.

 

PS: If you just want to install and try the plugin you can find it from IDEAs plugin repository (Preference -> Plugins -> Browse Repositories...).

Apache Camel was created before github existed. The project is hosted at ASF on their infrastructure.

ASF integrated with github 4-5 years ago and all their projects are mirrored to github.
For example the first PR at github to Apache Camel is from November 2012.

At github projects can be starred by users whom seems to like the project.
 

On the 9th November 2016 Apache Camel reached 1000 stars at github
A few days later Apache Camel has 1040 stars.

Thank you for showing the support for the project.

At the Apache Camel project we have a current logo as shown in the top of this page

It was a great initial effort of a logo for the project when it was created 9 years ago. However we have discussed in the community to come up with a new logo.

We got in touch with some designers from opensourcedesign whom does volunteer work, and they have come up with a first design of a logo.

They work is posted at github where we encourage Camel users to participate and share your thoughts. We are an open community and very much want to hear and see your ideas for a new logo.

The logo is also discussed at the Apache Camel @dev mailing list where you also can participate.

Github ticket: https://github.com/opensourcedesign/jobs/issues/108

The Apache Camel user community is growing constantly. It is also very rewarding to see that most of the contributors who became committers continue to stay involved. Therefore, in recognition of the continued contribution, the Apache Camel PMC invited Luca Burgazzoli to join the PMC, be even more involved and take a greater responsibility in shaping the future of the Camel project. We welcome Luca Burgazzoli as new Apache Camel PMC member. Many thanks for your past contributions and we look forward to the same commitment in the future.

 

On behalf of the Camel PMC, welcome aboard and we expect more great things coming from you!

Two weeks ago the Camel PMC voted another one of the very active and talented contributors to become a committer.

 

Nicola Ferraro was actively involved with Apache Camel for about 4 month contributing code and helping other users, especially for our Spring Boot integration. He proactively assigned reported issues to himself, provided pull requests and took them to resolution acting as a committer. In recognition of his work, the PMC only had to take care of the simple task of making that official. Four days ago, Nicola got his committer account setup, concluding the process of becoming the newest Camel rider. Stay tuned for his first official commit. (wink)

 

On behalf of the Camel PMC, welcome aboard Nicola and keep up the great work!

The Apache Camel project is growing at the same steady pace we got used to with strong support from our community. The project would not be what it is without the community contributions.

 

Some contributors stand out not only because of the high quality of the contributions, but also due to the commitment to the project and the time and energy spend on helping other users be as successful in using Camel. This is the case now with another rider: Luca Burgazzoli. In recognition of his skills and passion the Camel community is proudly announcing him becoming a committer.

 

On behalf of the Camel PMC, welcome aboard Luca and we expect more great things coming from you!

The upcoming Apache Camel 2.17.0 release, which we plan to release later this month be end of next week if all goes well, will be the last release that supports Java 1.7.
In the following release Apache Camel 2.18, Java 1.8 is required.  We will change the source compiler settings to be --source 1.8 and --target 1.8.

All Camel components that do not work on Java 1.8 will likewise be dropped.

A rule of thumb to remember which Camel version support which Java version is easy, because the numbers align very well:

  • Camel 2.17.x = Java 1.7.x
  • Camel 2.18.x = Java 1.8.x

 

The Apache Camel project is growing at the same steady pace we got used to with strong support from our community. The project would not be what it is without the community contributions.

 

Now and then contributors stand out not only because of the high quality of the contributions, but also due to the commitment to the project and the time and energy spend on helping other users be as successful in using Camel. This is the case now with one more rider: Antonin Stefanutti. In recognition of his skills and passion the Camel community is proudly announcing him becoming a new committer.

 

On behalf of the Camel PMC, welcome aboard and we expect more great things coming from you!
