Camel can work with databases in a number of different ways. This document tries to outline the most common approaches.

Database endpoints

Camel provides a number of different endpoints for working with databases

  • JPA for working with hibernate, openjpa or toplink. When consuming from the endpoints entity beans are read (and deleted/updated to mark as processed) then when producing to the endpoints they are written to the database (via insert/update).
  • iBATIS similar to the above but using Apache iBATIS
  • JDBC similar though using explicit SQL
  • SQL uses spring-jdbc behind the scene for the actual SQL handling. The difference between this component and JDBC component is that in case of SQL the query is a property of the endpoint and it uses message payload as parameters passed to the query

Database pattern implementations

Various patterns can work with databases as follows
