Camel runtime application is in charge to bridge the output produced by the operator during a
Build to the Camel runtime. It will finally execute an application containing the
Route as defined by
Camel K user. It will take care of converting all the different configuration and tuning into something meaningful to
Apache Camel framework. We use a java application,
camel-k-runtime which is based on
camel-quarkus to achieve the goal.

Based on Camel Quarkus
Camel K runtime is a java application in charge to prepare the Camel environment needed to run an
Integration. The application is shipped as a java dependency with Camel K releases and uses Camel Quarkus under the hood.
Camel Quarkus is an Apache Camel subproject that will make your Camel Integration run with the technology offered by Quarkus project. Thanks to it, you will be able to reduce resource footprint and have a faster startup, which is a fundamental aspect of cloud native development.

Runtime main duties
The main goal of the Camel-k-runtime is to launch a Camel Quarkus application and setup the routes configured by the Camel K user. When a user run a new
Operator will take care of building an application containing the
camel-k-runtime dependency. During application startup, the camel-k-runtime will be in charge to take care of the following aspects:
Basically the application will apply the configuration/customizations needed to run your application on Camel, transforming those configuration coming from the
Integration spec into something meaningful to Camel framework.
