Since we're on a major migration process of this website, some component documents here are out of sync right now. In the meantime you may want to look at the asciidoc in the repository: https://github.com/apache/camel/blob/master/README.md https://github.com/apache/camel/blob/master/components/readme.adoc
About the Scala DSL
Scala is a general purpose programming language designed to express common programming patterns in a concise, elegant, and type-safe way. It integrates very well with the Java platform. Our Scala DSL implementation is built on top of the existing Java-based DSL, but it adds Scala syntax sugar to make building routes even more convenient.
To use the Scala DSL in your camel routes you need to add the a dependency on camel-scala which implements the Scala DSL.
If you use maven you could just add the following to your pom.xml, substituting the version number for the latest & greatest release (see the download page for the latest versions).
Starting from version 2.11 Camel Scala DSL is compiled against Scala 2.10. If you plan to use Scala 2.9 with Camel 2.11, add the following to your pom.xml file instead.
Support for Scala 2.9 is deprecated and will be removed starting from the Camel 2.12 and 3.0.
