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, including a Java-based Fluent API, Spring or Blueprint XML Configuration files, and a Scala DSL. This means you get smart completion of routing rules in your IDE, whether in a Java, Scala or XML editor.

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

Apache Camel provides support for Bean Binding and seamless integration with popular frameworks such as CDISpring, Blueprint and Guice. Camel also has extensive support for unit testing your routes.

The following projects can leverage Apache Camel as a routing and mediation engine:

  • Apache ServiceMix - a popular distributed open source ESB and JBI container
  • Apache ActiveMQ - a mature, widely used open source message broker
  • Apache CXF - a smart web services suite (JAX-WS and JAX-RS)
  • Apache Karaf - a small OSGi based runtime in which applications can be deployed
  • Apache MINA - a high-performance NIO-driven networking framework

So don't get the hump - try Camel today! (smile)

Too many buzzwords - what exactly is Camel?

Okay, so the description above is technology focused.
There's a great discussion about Camel at Stack Overflow. We suggest you view the post, read the comments, and browse the suggested links for more details.

Apache Camel was created before github existed. The project is hosted at ASF on their infrastructure.

ASF integrated with github 4-5 years ago and all their projects are mirrored to github.
For example the first PR at github to Apache Camel is from November 2012.

At github projects can be starred by users whom seems to like the project.
 

On the 9th November 2016 Apache Camel reached 1000 stars at github
A few days later Apache Camel has 1040 stars.

Thank you for showing the support for the project.

At the Apache Camel project we have a current logo as shown in the top of this page

It was a great initial effort of a logo for the project when it was created 9 years ago. However we have discussed in the community to come up with a new logo.

We got in touch with some designers from opensourcedesign whom does volunteer work, and they have come up with a first design of a logo.

They work is posted at github where we encourage Camel users to participate and share your thoughts. We are an open community and very much want to hear and see your ideas for a new logo.

The logo is also discussed at the Apache Camel @dev mailing list where you also can participate.

Github ticket: https://github.com/opensourcedesign/jobs/issues/108

The Apache Camel user community is growing constantly. It is also very rewarding to see that most of the contributors who became committers continue to stay involved. Therefore, in recognition of the continued contribution, the Apache Camel PMC invited Luca Burgazzoli to join the PMC, be even more involved and take a greater responsibility in shaping the future of the Camel project. We welcome Luca Burgazzoli as new Apache Camel PMC member. Many thanks for your past contributions and we look forward to the same commitment in the future.

 

On behalf of the Camel PMC, welcome aboard and we expect more great things coming from you!
