Testcontainers Spring Junit5

Since Camel 3.0

Testing camel components is sometime complex because the 3rd party system a component interacts with does not provide testing facilities and/or is only available as a native application. To reduce this complexity, Camel Testcontainers Spring JUnit 5 extends camel spring test support providing a way to create and interact with containerized applications.

This module is an extension to the camel-testcontainers-junit5 component to add support for Spring. Therefore see the documentation for testcontainers for more details.
