Camel Core

User Manual

The User Manual is a comprehensive guide meant to help you with the key concepts of Apache Camel and software integration, from how to begin contributing to Apache Camel, how to upgrade to Camel 3.x, to architecture or integration patterns.


Camel is packed with several hundred components that are used to access databases, message queues and APIs. The Component reference provides you information about the functionality and configuration of each component.


Camel K

Apache Camel K is a lightweight integration framework built on Apache Camel that runs natively on Kubernetes and is specifically designed for serverless and micro service architectures. It allows you to run integration code written in Camel DSL on your cloud.


Camel Kafka Connector

Camel Kafka Connector allows you to use all Camel components as Kafka Connect connectors, which, as a result, expands Kafka Connect compatibility by allowing all Camel components to be used in the Kafka ecosystem.


Camel Quarkus

This project hosts the efforts to port and package the 280+ Camel components as Quarkus extensions. Quarkus is a Java platform offering fast boot times and low memory footprint. It targets both stock JVMs and GraalVM.

CamelSpring Boot

Camel Spring Boot

Camel support for Spring Boot provides auto-configuration of the Camel context by auto-detecting Camel routes available in the Spring context and registers the key Camel utilities as beans. It also provides starters for many Camel components.


Camel Karaf

Apache Karaf makes running Apache Camel in OSGi container easy, which as a result, expands Apache Camel’s compatibility by allowing all Camel components to run in the OSGi environment.
