Apache Camel is a powerful open source integration framework based on known Enterprise Integration Patterns.

Camel lets you create the Enterprise Integration Patterns to implement routing and mediation rules in either a Java based Domain Specific Language (or Fluent API), via Spring based Xml Configuration files or via the Scala DSL. This means you get smart completion of routing rules in your IDE whether in your Java, Scala or XML editor.

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

Apache Camel has powerful Bean Binding and integrated seamless with popular frameworks such as Spring and Guice.

Apache Camel has extensive Testing support allowing you to easily unit test your routes.

Apache Camel can be used as a routing and mediation engine for the following projects:

  • Apache ServiceMix which is the most popular and powerful distributed open source ESB and JBI container
  • Apache ActiveMQ which is the most popular and powerful open source message broker
  • Apache CXF which is a smart web services suite (JAX-WS)
  • Apache MINA a networking framework

So don't get the hump, try Camel today!
