Overview

The transactional client pattern, shown in Figure 10.7, “Transactional Client Pattern”, refers to messaging endpoints that can participate in a transaction. Apache Camel supports transactions using Spring transaction management.

Transaction oriented endpoints

Not all Apache Camel endpoints support transactions. Those that do are called transaction oriented endpoints (or TOEs). For example, both the JMS component and the ActiveMQ component support transactions.
To enable transactions on a component, you must perform the appropriate initialization before adding the component to the CamelContext. This entails writing code to initialize your transactional components explicitly.
