== Camel Example Rest Producer
This example shows how to call a REST service using Camel Rest.
The example uses a timer to trigger a Camel route to call the REST service.
The REST service is embedded within Spring Boot itself so it can run standalone.
=== Camel routes
The Camel route is located in the `RestRoute` class. In this class the route
starts from a timer, that triggers every 2nd second and calls the REST service using the rest endpoint
which returns a message, that is logged.
=== Configuring Rest
The rest producer is configured using Camels Rest DSL which is done using the `restConfiguration` in the route.
The actual HTTP client that is used to call the REST service is `camel-http` which is added as dependency
in the `pom.xml` file. You can use other HTTP clients with the REST producer such as
- camel-http
- camel-netty-http
- camel-undertow
=== How to run
You can run this example using
mvn spring-boot:run
