Claus Ibsen: "What are the best uses of Camel?"

Hello. Best uses for Camel. Well, Camel is so flexible and lightweight that you can use it in a lot of scenarios. You can use it like a proxy, if you have some integration and you need to see it in a proxy, but it can also be used like an ESB. If you need the full-blown ESB features, Camel is actually part of the Apache ServiceMix ESB, so it kind of works together and you get the best of both worlds. Camel is not necessarily designed for a specific industry, so it's very broad,  so you can use it for healthcare, finance, telco and whatever you want. It's very customizable, so you can plug in your custom adapters and components if you want.
