Camel is an open-source integration framework that allows you to rapidly and easily connect different systems that consume or provide data. You can define routing and mediation rules in Camel using a variety of domain-specific languages. This means that you can get smart routing rule completion in your IDE, whether it's a Java or XML editor.

Apache Camel works directly with any transport or messaging paradigm, including HTTP, ActiveMQ, JMS, JBI, SCA, MINA, or CXF, as well as pluggable Components and Data Format choices, using URIs. Apache Camel is a simple library with few dependencies that can be easily integrated into any Java programme. You can use the same API regardless of which transport is used with Apache Camel, so you only have to learn the API once and you can use all of the Components given out-of-the-box.

How Camel Works?

Camel's URI-based routing technology enables for the dynamic composition of message consumers and producers based on config flags and environment variables at runtime. A Docker container can be used to dynamically transport communications to and from different places dependent on the needs of the operators.

Why Choose Apache Camel?

There are numerous open-source and licenced integration frameworks available on the software market. The Apache Camel integration framework is one of the top open-source software programmes, with a diverse set of capabilities. We can easily design loosely linked applications using these characteristics.

  • Light-weight Open Source
  • Easy Configuration
  • Routing and Mediation Engine
  • Payload-agnostic router
  • A domain-specific language (DSL) and POJO Model
  • Enterprise integration patterns (EIPs)
