Chapter 2. Apache Camel on JBoss EAP

Abstract

Apache Camel in JBoss Fuse enables you to select your own way to develop an integrated application. Also, It allows you to select the container to run. This chapter describes how to install JBoss Fuse on JBoss EAP.

2.1. Overview of Using JBoss Fuse on JBoss EAP

Installing JBoss Fuse on JBoss EAP enables you to add Camel routes as a part of the JBoss EAP configuration. You can deploy routes as a part of JavaEE applications.
The main goal of JBoss Fuse on JBoss EAP is to provide Camel features as a direct usable option within JBoss EAP. You do not need to configure or deploy anything. The other advantages of packaging Camel on JBoss EAP as a global library are:
  • Less bloated war deployments by using the EAP Camel Subsystem instead of packaging Fuse libraries in a WAR file.
  • Patch the application server instead of individual deployments
  • No need to ship camel dependencies with applications
  • Use supported versions of component libraries
