Message Endpoint

Camel supports the Message Endpoint from the EIP patterns using the Endpoint interface.

How does an application connect to a messaging channel to send and receive messages?


Connect an application to a messaging channel using a Message Endpoint, a client of the messaging system that the application can then use to send or receive messages.

When using the DSL to create Routes you typically refer to Message Endpoints by their URIs rather than directly using the Endpoint interface. It’s then a responsibility of the CamelContext to create and activate the necessary Endpoint instances using the available Components.


The following example route demonstrates the use of a File consumer endpoint and a JMS producer endpoint, by their URIs:

  • Java

  • XML

    <from uri="file:messages/foo"/>
    <to uri="jms:queue:foo"/>
