Console Example

Available as of Camel 2.10

This example is located in the Camel distribution at examples/camel-example-console.

This is a beginner's example that demonstrates how to get started with Apache Camel.

In this example we integrate with the console using the Stream component. The example is interactive - it reads input from the console, and then transforms the input to upper case and prints it back to the console.

This is implemented with a Camel route defined in the Spring XML markup shown below:

This example can be launched from the command line using Maven:

mvn compile exec:java

In the console you can enter a message and press <ENTER>. Camel responds by echoing the input message in upper case, as shown below:

[onsole.CamelConsoleMain.main()] SpringCamelContext             INFO  Apache Camel 2.10 (CamelContext: camel-1) started in 0.455 seconds
Enter something: camel rocks
CAMEL ROCKS
Enter something: and we have fun
AND WE HAVE FUN
Enter something:
