Camel 2.22.0 Release (currently in progress)


New and Noteworthy

Welcome to the 2.22.0 release which approx XXX issues resolved (new features, improvements and bug fixes such as...)

This release supports only Spring Boot 2. Spring Boot v1 is no longer supported.


  • Camel has upgraded from Spring Boot v1 to v2 and therefore v1 is no longer supported. 
  • Upgraded to Spring Framework 5. Camel should work with Spring 4.3.x as well, but going forward Spring 5.x will be the minimum Spring version in future releases. 
  • Upgraded to Karaf 4.2. You may run Camel on Karaf 4.1 but we only officially support Karaf 4.2 in this release.
  • The File2 consumer with read-lock idempotent/idempotent-changed can now be configured to delay the release tasks to expand the window when a file is regarded as in-process, which is usable in active/active cluster settings with a shared idempotent repository to ensure other nodes dont too quickly see a processed file as a file they can process (only needed if you have readLockRemoveOnCommit=true).
  • Allow to plugin a custom request/reply correlation id manager implementation on Netty4 producer in request/reply mode.
  • The Twitter component now uses extended mode by default to support tweets > 140 characters

And these important fixes:

  • Fixed a CXF continuation timeout issue with camel-cxf consumer could cause the consumer to return a response with data instead of triggering a timeout to the calling SOAP client.
  • Fixed using AdviceWith and using weave methods on onException etc. not working. 
  • Fixed Splitter in parallel processing and streaming mode may block, while iterating message body when the iterator throws exception in first invoked next() method call.
  • Fixed Kafka consumer to not auto commit if autoCommitEnable=false.
  • Fixed file consumer was using markerFile as read-lock by default, which should have been none.

  • camel-mybatis - Now has a mybatis-bean component that supports using MyBatis annotations on POJO beans to specify the SQL queries and mappings.

Important changes to consider when upgrading

  • Camel has upgraded from Spring Boot v1 to v2 and therefore v1 is no longer supported. Migrating from SB1 to SB2 may require changes, see the Spring Boot v1 to v2 migration documentation for details.
  • Upgraded to Spring Framework v5 as default. Support for Spring Framework v4.3 is deprecated and not recommended to be used.
  • Upgraded to Karaf 4.2. You may run Camel on Karaf 4.1 but we only officially support Karaf 4.2 in this release. 
  • The camel-jms Maven pom.xml file now exclude spring-messaging dependency as this JAR is not used.
  • Unit testing Camel with Spring Boot and extending the base classes CamelTestSupport or CamelSpringTestSupport is now throwing an exception as this has never been intended/support. Instead use the CamelSpringBootRunner JUnit runner, and do not extend a base class.
  • The file consumer has changed to use readLock=none as default instead of readLock=markerFile. Documentation already indicated that readLock=none was the default.
