The amqp: component supports the AMQP 1.0 protocol using the JMS Client API of the Qpid project. In case you want to use AMQP 0.9 (in particular RabbitMQ) you might also be interested in the Camel RabbitMQ component. Please keep in mind that prior to the Camel 2.17.0 AMQP component supported AMQP 0.9 and above, however since Camel 2.17.0 it supports only AMQP 1.0.

Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:

URI format

AMQP Options

You can specify all of the various configuration options of the JMS component after the destination name.


As AMQP component is inherited from JMS component, the usage of the former is almost identical to the latter:

Using AMQP component

Configuring AMQP component

Starting from the Camel 2.16.1 you can also use the AMQPComponent#amqp10Component(String connectionURI) factory method to return the AMQP 1.0 component with the pre-configured topic prefix: 

Creating AMQP 1.0 component

Keep in mind that starting from the Camel 2.17 the AMQPComponent#amqp10Component(String connectionURI) factory method has been deprecated on the behalf of the AMQPComponent#amqpComponent(String connectionURI)

Creating AMQP 1.0 component

Starting from Camel 2.17, in order to automatically configure the AMQP component, you can also add an instance of org.apache.camel.component.amqp.AMQPConnectionDetails to the registry. For example for Spring Boot you just have to define bean:

AMQP connection details auto-configuration


You can also rely on the Camel properties to read the AMQP connection details. Factory method AMQPConnectionDetails.discoverAMQP() attempts to read Camel properties in a Kubernetes-like convention, just as demonstrated on the snippet below:


AMQP connection details auto-configuration

Using topics

To have using topics working with camel-amqp you need to configure the component to use topic:// as topic prefix, as shown below:

Keep in mind that both  AMQPComponent#amqpComponent() methods and AMQPConnectionDetails pre-configure the component with the topic prefix, so you don't have to configure it explicitly.
