Apache Camel🦒: How to write First Route.

Apache Camel

Hello Its Rohan Kadam😊,

What is Apache Camel🦒?

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 (DSL, such as Java, XML, Groovy, Kotlin, and YAML). This means you get smart completion of routing rules in your IDE, whether in a Java or XML editor.

Apache Camel uses URIs to work directly with any kind of transport or messaging models 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 of which kind of transport is used — so learn the API once and you can interact with all the Components provided out-of-box.

A Camel route is where the integration flow is defined. For example to integrate two systems then a Camel route can be coded to specify how these systems are integrated.

This can be coded in a route using Java with the Java DSL

Test Route

Step 4: On Successfully Creation on Route is registered.
