Running Camel standalone and have it keep running

If you are using Camel as a standalone Java application, then Camel provides a Main class you can reuse to more easily boot up Camel and keep it running until the JVM terminates, for example when pressing ctrl + c.

The Main class is provided in the following two components

  • camel-core JAR in the org.apache.camel.Main class (requires Camel 2.6)
  • camel-spring JAR in the org.apache.camel.spring.Main class

Using camel-core JAR example

Available as of Camel 2.6

The following example shows how you can create your main class, named MainExample and use the Main class from Camel.

MainExample

Using camel-spring JAR example

This would be similar to the camel-core JAR example, however you would use the Main class from the org.apache.camel.spring package.
The Main class from camel-spring JAR has many more options and is prepared for booting Camel from Spring XML files.
