Get began with REST companies with Apache Camel

REST companies have gotten an more and more well-liked architectural fashion for connecting fashionable programs with the cloud and to one another as the necessity for versatile APIs and microservices grows. With Apache Camel, you possibly can write REST companies simpler and faster utilizing the REST domain-specific language (DSL).

During a poster session on the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (September 26 – 28, 2018 in Houston), we’ll stroll audiences by creating their first Camel route utilizing the REST DSL.

Apache Camel is a number one open supply integration framework. Design patterns are frequent options utilized in improvement which were confirmed to work successfully for a given drawback. Camel is a Java-based implementation of Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIPs), established design patterns and integration options for frequent system connection and knowledge change issues.

We have seen REST companies used for knowledge entry APIs, sending info from gadgets to the cloud, monitoring, and even migrating accounts at bank card corporations. The Camel REST DSL permits the creation of REST companies utilizing Restlet, Servlet, Jetty, and a wide range of different HTTP-aware elements for implementation. Using the REST DSL permits the creation of REST companies faster and simpler than ever.

Getting began

The quickest method to get began with the Camel Rest DSL (in our opinion) is utilizing Spring Boot. Spring Boot gives auto-configuration for Apache Camel to shortly create standalone functions.

To allow Apache Camel within the Spring Boot utility, we’d like the camel-spring-boot-starter dependency. In Maven this might be:


Next, as with all Spring Boot functions, you will want to arrange a category to begin up the appliance.

public class MySimpleCamelSoftware

Camel’s principal characteristic is a routing engine. Camel has two principal methods of defining routing guidelines: Java DSL and XML. We shall be specializing in the Java-based DSL. You can write your Camel REST DSL route by extending the Camel RouteBuilder class and implementing the configure technique, like this:

public class MySimpleCamelRouter extends RouteBuilder

Now you possibly can run your instance utilizing mvn spring-boot:run and hit your new REST API at http://localhost:8080/camel/hello. It’s simple to check REST companies from an online browser when testing GET companies, as these will be accessed through the URL within the handle bar. POST, PUT, and DELETE are a lot more durable. You can set up third-party plugins that present a REST shopper (corresponding to Postman) to attempt different REST verbs.

Learn extra

Our presentation on the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing shall be a part of Poster Session 3 on September 27 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. It shall be technical—whereas we wish our session to be relevant for learners, some earlier information of Java and/or integration is useful.

Grace Hopper is a unbelievable alternative to community with girls in know-how, study from others, and expertise the ladies within the know-how neighborhood as an entire. This is Mary’s second 12 months talking and attending Grace Hopper and Krystal’s first 12 months talking. Come to go to us throughout the poster symposium!
