Apache Camel celebrates 5 years in development with 2.10 release by Chris Mayer.
Off the back of celebrating its fifth birthday at CamelOne 2012, the Apache Camel team have put the finishing touches to their next release, Apache Camel 2.10, adding in an array of new components to the Apache enterprise application integration platform.
No less than 483 issues have been resolved this time round, but the real draw is the 18 components added to the package, including Websocket and Twitter, allowing for deeper cohesive messaging for users. With the Twitter component, based on the Twitter4J library, users may obtain direct, polling, or event-driven consumption of timelines, users, trends, and direct messages. An example of combining the two can be found here.
Other additions to the component catalogue include support for HBase, CDI, MongoDB, Apache Avro, DynamoDB on AWS, Google GSON and Guava. Java 7 support is much more thorough now, as is support for Spring 3.1.x and Netty. A full list of all resolved issues can be found here.
The Twitter Websocket example reminds me of something I have been meaning to write about Twitter, topic maps and public data streams.
But more on that next week.
