Red Hat Training

A Red Hat training course is available for Red Hat Fuse

Chapter 1. About the Fuse Tooling Tutorials

The Red Hat Fuse Tooling tutorials provide a hands-on introduction to using the Fuse Tooling to develop, run, test, and deploy an Apache Camel application.


Before you begin, you should be familiar with the following software:

Overview of the Fuse Tooling tutorials

Here is a summary of the tutorials and what you accomplish in each one:

For more details on Fuse Tooling features, see the Tooling User Guide.

About the sample application

The sample application that you build in the Fuse Tooling tutorials simulates a simple order application for zoos to order animals. Sample XML messages are provided - each XML message includes customer information (the name, city, and country of the zoo) and order information (the type and number of animals requested, and the maximum number of animals allowed).

Using the Fuse Tooling, you create a Blueprint project that takes incoming sample messages, filters them based on their content (valid versus invalid orders), and then further sorts the valid orders by the location (country) of the zoo. In the later tutorials, you use the sample application to debug a routing context, trace a message through a route, test a route with JUnit, and finally to publish a Fuse project.

About the resource files

Each tutorial builds upon the previous one. The code generated by one tutorial is the starting point for the next tutorial so that you can complete the tutorials in sequence. Alternately, after you complete the first tutorial, you can do any other tutorial out of sequence by using one of the provided context files as a starting point.

The tutorials rely on resource files provided in the file located here. This zip file contains two folders:

This folder contains six message files named message1.xml, message2.xml, …​ , message6.xml. In the first tutorial, Chapter 2, Setting up your environment, you create the directory in which to store these message files and you also view their contents. You need these message files for all tutorials.

This folder contains three routing context files:
