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 early version of the new website
We would very much like to receive any feedback on the new site, please join the discussion on the Camel user mailing list.

Atmosphere Websocket Servlet Component

Available as of Camel 2.14

The atmosphere-websocket: component provides Websocket based endpoints for a servlet communicating with external clients over Websocket (as a servlet accepting websocket connections from external clients).
The component uses the SERVLET component and uses the Atmosphere library to support the Websocket transport in various Servlet containers (e..g., Jetty, Tomcat, ...).

Unlike the Websocket component that starts the embedded Jetty server, this component uses the servlet provider of the container.

Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:

    <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version -->

URI Format

atmosphere-websocket:///relative path[?options]

Reading and Writing Data over Websocket

An atmopshere-websocket endpoint can either write data to the socket or read from the socket, depending on whether the endpoint is configured as the producer or the consumer, respectively.
