We’re starting a new initiative at Apache Camel to create a community-driven catalog of reusable Kamelets (Camel route snippets, i.e. connectors) that can be used to stream data from/to external systems into any platform powered by Apache Camel. The “Apache Camel Kamelet catalog” is available here and it already contains a collection of useful Kamelets: we would like to extend it with help of the community. Kamelets are currently supported out-of-the-box by the Apache Camel K project and we’re working to support them also in Camel core, so that they can run eventually in any Apache Camel subproject, like Camel Kafka Connector (but also camel-quarkus, camel-spring-boot, …).
Camel K 1.3.0 is providing a new feature to Java debug deployed integrations. Even if Camel K 1.3.0 is not fully compatible with VS Code Tooling for Apache Camel K extension, it remains possible to leverage the VS Code Java debugging capabilities. I recorded a video which is following the steps in this blogpost. I let you choose your preferred way to discover how to java debug your Camel K integration in VS Code.
Apache Camel K 1.2.0 has been released! This version introduces some important features that will play an increasingly bigger role in future releases of Camel K. Quarkus as default runtime Camel K 1.2.0 uses camel-quarkus 1.1.0 (Quarkus 1.8.0.Final) as runtime, but Quarkus is no longer an optional runtime for Camel K: Quarkus is now the default runtime. This means that users no longer need to enable Quarkus explicitly when running their integrations (using kamel run -t quarkus.
Apache Camel K has made a lot of progress since its inception and we’re now proud to announce the 1.0 release. We’ve been working hard in the past months to add more awesome features to Camel K, but also to improve stability and performance. This post contains a list of cool stuff that you’ll find in the 1.0 GA release. First of all, if you’re living under a rock and it’s the first time you hear about Camel K, you can read some introductory blog posts here (1 - introducing camel k, 2 - camel k on knative) or look at the Apache Camel website that contains a Camel K section with a lot of material that is automatically generated from the Github repository.
