This is an experimental feature. You can enable it by


It doesn’t support the rest services used in org.apache.camel.builder.LambdaRouteBuilder right now. Also, it can not use CDI injection in the RouteBuilder configure() since we get the rest definitions at build time while CDI is unavailable.

Camel Quarkus limitations

The apiContextIdListing configuration option is not supported. Since multiple CamelContext`s are not supported and Quarkus applications run standalone, there is no scenario where attempting to resolve OpenApi specifications for a specific `CamelContext would be useful. It also introduces some additional overhead of requiring JMX (which is not supported in native mode) & additional Camel Quarkus extensions for processing XML.
