Creating a new Camel Scala project
Camel offers Maven archetypes that allow you to quickly setup a new project.
To do this, you can execute the following Maven goal from the command line (using Maven 3.0.3 or better):
This runs Maven interactively - just type
camel and press <Enter> to filter for Camel-related archetypes.
From the list, pick the number for

The generated project has a "readme" file with more instructions, and is ready to compile and run from Maven using:
