[JAVA] Steps to create a simple camel app using Apache Camel Spring Boot starters

I wanted to make a new simple app to verify the operation of the app made with ** Apache Camel **, but I made the Java system from scratch. I don't know what to do because there is almost no.

For the time being, following the explanation on the official page, I made a camel app that has a route that logs every second. I will not verify the startup of camel, so use ** Camel Spring Boot starters ** that seems to be easy to make. It was.


Preparing the project

I somehow know that pom.xml is needed for maven, but I don't know how to write it at this point. Since the only thing that appears on camel's page is how to write dependencies, we have to prepare an outer frame.

I couldn't help it, so I made a new project with IDE (IntelliJ IDEA).

  1. File → New → Project...
  2. First screen
  3. Select Maven from the list on the left
  4. Project SDK remains 1.8 for the time being
  5. Leave Create from archetype unchecked
    1. 「Next」
  6. Next screen
    1. Name: mycamelapp
  7. Location: Appropriate new directory
  8. The inside of Artifact Coordinates remains as it is
    1. 「Finish」

Just in case, set up Git and save your work. I decided to use .gitignore because there was a template collection on GitHub.


cd path/to/app

git init

for kind in Java Maven Global/JetBrains; do
  echo "###--- github/gitignore : ${kind}.gitignore ---###"
  curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/github/gitignore/master/${kind}.gitignore
done >> .gitignore

git add .
git commit -m 'Create a Maven project'

pom.xml Add dependencies according to https://camel.apache.org/camel-spring-boot/latest/index.html. It took time without realizing that dependencies had to be written separately inside and outside dependencyManagement.

The whole is as follows.

pom.xml (mycamelapp)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
         xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">


	<!-- https://camel.apache.org/camel-spring-boot/latest/index.html -->
			<!-- Camel BOM -->
			<!-- ... other BOMs or dependencies ... -->

		<!-- Camel Starter -->
		<!-- ... other dependencies ... -->

ActiveMQ is introduced as an example of the component to be added to other dependencies, but I skip it because I do not plan to use it.

route definition

I've seen a lot of examples here with the app under maintenance, so I don't have any doubts personally. https://camel.apache.org/camel-spring-boot/latest/spring-boot.html#SpringBoot-Camel Define a short route at SpringBootStarter.


cd path/to/app

mkdir -p src/main/java/org/example/mycamelapp/routes
touch    src/main/java/org/example/mycamelapp/routes/SampleTimerRoute.java


package org.example.mycamelapp.routes;

import org.apache.camel.builder.RouteBuilder;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Component;

public class SampleTimerRoute extends RouteBuilder {

	public void configure() throws Exception {

What is a route?

Roughly speaking, ** pipeline **. Imagine Java8's Stream API, but it's flowing one after another. I write in DSL how to process the incoming data.

Spring Boot settings

I couldn't find it in camel's documentation, but it seems that I have to write the starting point of the app. When you write it, the "Run" mark is displayed on the corresponding line in the IDE.


package org.example.mycamelapp;

import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;

public class MyCamelApplication {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		SpringApplication.run(MyCamelApplication.class, args);

Prevent the app from closing immediately after launching. It seems that you only need to give parameters here, so write it in yaml (may be properties).


# to keep the JVM running
    main-run-controller: true


On the IDE, you can start it immediately by pressing the "Run" button mentioned above.

If you start it with maven command, add the setting to pom.xml.




cd path/to/app

mvn spring-boot:run
