Greater Florida Software Symposium
April 16 - 18, 2010 - Tampa, FL
Enterprise Integration Using Apache Camel
Apache Camel is a robust open source integration framework that handles routing and mediation tasks associated with enterprise integration. Camel allows you to quickly and easily route messages and integrate components in a distributed, decoupled manner. For example, using the Camel Java DSL, you can send and receive JMS messages in just a couple of lines of Java code. In this live coding session I will describe what Camel is, describe the overall architecture, show why it is useful, and demonstrate through live coding examples how to use the Camel Java DSL to write simple (and complex) routing logic. By attending this session you will learn Camel well enough to use it at work the next day.
Agenda - What is Apache Camel? - Understanding Camel's basic architecture - Configuring and Running Camel - Input Endpoints and Triggers - Message Enhancement and Transformation - Message Processing - Comparable Technologies and Future Direction
