Apache Camel is an Open Source integration framework that empowers you to quickly and easily integrate various systems consuming or producing data.
Camel empowers you to define routing and mediation rules in a variety of domain-specific languages (DSL, such as Java, XML, Groovy, Kotlin, and YAML). This means you get smart completion of routing rules in your IDE, whether in a Java or XML editor.
Apache Camel uses URIs to enable easier integration with all kinds of transport or messaging model including HTTP, ActiveMQ, JMS, JBI, SCA, MINA or CXF together with working with pluggable Data Format options. Apache Camel is a small library that has minimal dependencies for easy embedding in any Java application. Apache Camel lets you work with the same API regardless of the transport type, making it possible to interact with all the components provided out-of-the-box, with a good understanding of the API.
Apache Camel has powerful Bean Binding and integrated seamlessly with popular frameworks such as Spring, Quarkus, and CDI.
