For example, you may have many routes, and it may help to maintain the application if some routes are in separate XML files. You may also want to store common and reusable routes in other XML files, which you can simply import when needed.

myCoolRoutes.xml which contains a couple of routes as shown in this example.
Then in your XML file which contains the CamelContext you can use Spring to import the
myCoolRoute.xml file. And then inside
<camelContext/> you can refer to the
<routeContext/> by its

Also notice that you can mix and match, having routes inside
CamelContext and also externalized in
You can have as many
