Getting Started

First you need to Download the Camel distribution; or you could grab the Source and try Building it yourself.

Then come back here, and you might want to read the following documentation before continuing:

Working with CamelContexts and RouteBuilders

To get started with Camel:

  1. Create a CamelContext.

  2. Add whatever routing rules you wish using the DSL and RouteBuilder or using XML DSL.

  3. Start the Camel context.

When your application is closing you may wish to stop the context

When you are ready, why not walk through an example? And then walk through another example.
