Check the User guide for more information about writing Camel Quarkus applications.


You can register health checks for your applications with the Camel health check API.

By default, classes extending AbstractHealthCheck are registered as both liveness and readiness checks. You can override the isReadiness method to control this behaviour.

Any checks provided by your application are automatically discovered and bound to the Camel registry. They will be available via the Quarkus health endpoints /q/health/live and /q/health/ready.

You can also provide custom HealthCheckRepository implementations and these are also automatically discovered and bound to the Camel registry for you.

Refer to the Quarkus health guide for further information.

Provided health checks

Some checks are automatically registered for your application.

Camel Context Health

Inspects the Camel Context status and causes the health check status to be DOWN if the status is anything other than 'Started'.

Camel Route Health
