Apache Camel

Contributor(s): Matthew Haughn

Apache Camel is an open source Java-based framework that provides a rule-based routing and mediation engine to facilitate enterprise application integration (EAI).

Camel is an implementation of Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP), a collection of design patterns for integrating new and existing systems in a business environment. The framework makes integration more accessible to developers by implementing all widely-used patterns, connecting to a large number of transports and APIs and providing domain-specific languages (DSLs) to connect EIPs and transports. Camel also provides commonly-used implementations, interfaces for the EIPs, base objects, a configuration system and debugging tools.

Camel was created as a project of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), a non-profit corporation that oversees the development of Apache software.
