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



When using the stats command endpoint, the camel-quarkus-management extension must be added as a project dependency to enable JMX. Maven users will have to add the following to their pom.xml:




The Bean language can be used to invoke a method on a bean to control the state of routes. The org.apache.camel.quarkus:camel-quarkus-bean extension must be added to the classpath. Maven users must add the following dependency to the POM:


In native mode, the bean class must be annotated with @RegisterForReflection.


The Simple language can be used to control the state of routes. The following example uses a ProducerTemplate to stop a route with the id foo:


To use the OGNL notation, the org.apache.camel.quarkus:camel-quarkus-bean extension must be added as a dependency.

In native mode, the classes used in the OGNL notation must be registered for reflection. In the above code snippet, the org.apache.camel.spi.RouteController class returned from camelContext.getRouteController() must be registered. As this is a third-party class, it cannot be annotated with @RegisterForReflection directly - instead you can annotate a different class and specifying the target classes to register. For example, the class defining the Camel routes could be annotated with @RegisterForReflection(targets = { org.apache.camel.spi.RouteController.class }).

Alternatively, add the following line to your src/main/resources/

quarkus.camel.native.reflection.include-patterns = org.apache.camel.spi.RouteController

Camel Quarkus limitations


The stats action is not available in native mode as JMX is not supported on GraalVM. Therefore, attempting to build a native image with the camel-quarkus-management extension on the classpath will result in a build failure.
