About the Technology

Apache Camel is a Java framework that implements enterprise integration patterns (EIPs) and comes with over 200 adapters to third-party systems. A concise DSL lets you build integration logic into your app with just a few lines of Java or XML. By using Camel, you benefit from the testing and experience of a large and vibrant open source community.

About the Book

Camel in Action, Second Edition is the definitive guide to the Camel framework. It starts with core concepts like sending, receiving, routing, and transforming data. It then goes in depth on many topics such as how to develop, debug, test, deal with errors, secure, scale, cluster, deploy, and monitor your Camel applications. The book also discusses how to run Camel with microservices, reactive systems, containers, and in the cloud.
