Creating a new Spring based Camel Route
If you want to create your own version of the Spring Example you can use the maven archetype.
mvn archetype:generate \ -DarchetypeGroupId=org.apache.camel.archetypes \ -DarchetypeArtifactId=camel-archetype-spring \ -DarchetypeVersion=1.5.0 \ -DgroupId=myGroupId \ -DartifactId=myArtifactId
Note: -DarchetypeVersion=1.5.0 is the version number of Camel. Change this to the current version of Camel you are using.
When using camel archetypes, make sure your package name is not org.apache.camel (or a sub package of this) as this will instruct Camel to search in its own packages for your routes. This can also cause Camel not to start, as shown in CAMEL-1197. You can change your package name by specifying -Dpackage
This will create a maven project which can be run immediately via the Camel Maven Plugin as follows
cd myArtifactId mvn camel:run
The configuration file is in src/main/resources/META-INF/spring/camel-context.xml.
