What is Apache Camel in Java?

Apache Camel is a rule-based routing and mediation engine which provides a Java object based implementation of the Enterprise Integration Patterns using an API (or declarative Java Domain Specific Language) to configure routing and mediation rules.

Apache Camel is an open source Java framework that focuses on making integration easier and more accessible to developers. It does this by providing:

  • concrete implementations of all the widely used¬†Enterprise Integration Patterns¬†(EIPs)
  • connectivity to a great variety of transports and APIs
  • easy to use Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) to wire EIPs and transports together
