Apache Camel

New release as of 25 July 2011.

The Apache Camel site self describes as:

Apache Camel is a powerful open source integration framework based on known Enterprise Integration Patterns with powerful Bean Integration.

Camel lets you create the Enterprise Integration Patterns to implement routing and mediation rules in either a Java based Domain Specific Language (or Fluent API), via Spring based Xml Configuration files or via the Scala DSL. This means you get smart completion of routing rules in your IDE whether in your Java, Scala or XML editor.

Apache Camel uses URIs so that it can easily work directly with any kind of Transport or messaging model such as HTTP, ActiveMQ, JMS, JBI, SCA, MINA or CXF Bus API together with working with pluggable Data Format options. Apache Camel is a small library which has minimal dependencies for easy embedding in any Java application. Apache Camel lets you work with the same API regardless which kind of Transport used, so learn the API once and you will be able to interact with all the Components that is provided out-of-the-box.

Apache Camel has powerful Bean Binding and integrated seamless with popular frameworks such as Spring and Guice.

Apache Camel has extensive Testing support allowing you to easily unit test your routes.


….

So don’t get the hump, try Camel today! 🙂

Comments/suggestions?

I am going to be working through some of the tutorials and other documentation. Anything I should be looking for?

Data Engine Roundup

Mathew Hurst provides a quick listing of data engines (including his own, which merits a close look).

Building Interfaces for Data Engines – Post

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Building Interfaces for Data Engines is a summary by Matthew Hurst of six data engines that provide access to data released by others.

If you are a data user, definitely worth a visit to learn about current data engines.

If you are a data developer, definitely worth a visit to glean where we might be going next.

If it is any consolation, the art of book design, that is the layout of text and images on a page remains more art than science.

Research on that topic, layout of print and images, has been underway for approximately 2,000 years, with no signs of slacking off now.

User interfaces face a similar path in my estimation.
