BeanIO is configured using a mappings XML file where you define the mapping from the flat format to Objects (POJOs). This mapping file is mandatory to use.

The CSV data could for example be as below:
To use the BeanIO data format in XML, you need to configure it using the <beanio> XML tag as shown below. The routes is similar to the example above.
To use BeanIO in your Camel routes you need to add a dependency on camel-beanio which implements this data format.
