Apache Camel 2.11 - Components for Neo4j, CouchDB, ElasticSearch, JMS, and CMIS

  • submit to reddit
As usual the Camel community continues to be very active. For the upcoming Camel 2.11 release we already have five new components in the works:

All five components started by members of the community and not by people from the Camel team. For example, the camel-neo4j, and camel-couchdb components were kindly donated to ASF by Stephen Samuel. Bilgin Ibryam contributed the camel-cmis component, Cedric Vidal donated the camel-elastichsearch component, and lastly Scott Sullivan donated the camel-sjms component. 
Since then Scott and Bilgin have been invited into the Camel team, and both are Camel committers today. Scott will continue to improve and work on camel-sjms. At this time we are looking for people who wanna give the current code a test-spin. It will take some time to harden this component to become as stable as the current camel-jms component. We anticipate this will be ongoing work over the next couple of Camel releases.

You can click on the links in the bulleted list to get to the Camel documentation for each of these components, which has some sample code as well.
Also, expect much improved CDI support from Camel in 2.11.

The 'in-progress' release notes of Camel 2.11 can be seen here.

Thanks a lot to the very active Camel community and for people who took the time to write components that benefit all of us. Keep up the great work!

And in case you did not know, Apache Camel comes with a lot of components out of the box. The screenshot below is a directory listing from my laptop with the trunk code.
