In a nutshell: This is a great resource for any developers working with Camel, and also any developers who wants to learn more about, and indeed leverage, Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) within their code.

Camel in Action walks you though the entire process of using EIP within your application, and explains the core concepts behind both Camel and EIP using an amazingly focused and clear approach. You will learn all about messages, routing, transformations, error handling and testing within the first two sections alone. The third section nicely covers all the advanced topics that developers utilising Camel in their day job will no doubt encounter, such as transactions, concurrency, scalability, monitoring and deploying to name a few.

The book does a great job of covering core EIP concepts, and you can learn even more from Enterprise Integration Patterns: Designing, Building, and Deploying Messaging Solutions (Addison-Wesley Signature) which was ground-breaking when first published, and was the book that introduced EIP to the world (and is still the definitive reference).

If you're using the Spring framework for implementing your main application then it will be worth having a look at Spring Integration, which offers very similar functionality as Camel, and allows you to implement EIP without leaving your current framework. If you do decide to use Spring Integration then I would recommend checking out the sister book to this one

Great coverage, this will be the definitive book for Camel 15 May 2011
By Richard J. Wagner - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you are a Camel user, you probably need a copy of this book. It covers lots of use cases for Camel, and covers many topics a lesser selection wouldn't even consider (i.e. monitoring, deployment under different containers, etc.).

The book is well-written and is easy to read for even a novice in the "Integration" workspace. This is good, because the workspace itself is broad and deep, and Camel covers much of it. I like that the book didn't myopically focus on Enterprise Integration patterns, which would've been a natural fault to make. Instead, it covers Camel front-to-back, inside and out.

In this reader's opinion, the ordering of the chapters is a little strange-- you aren't told how to build your own projects until nearly the end of the book-- but this doesn't detract from the book's usability. (Just don't be a stickler about reading it all in order, unless you want to spend a good deal of time reading things that precede this important topic.) Aside from that minor nit, there's little to dislike about this book.

Well done, probably the definitive book on Camel for quite some time.

Nice work! 9 July 2011
By Siddhardha - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book from cover to cover and I very much liked this book. The writing style is clear and lots of examples are provided with maven integration that makes it easy for the reader to follow the concepts being illustrated. Camel is a framework that implements all Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIPs) out of the box and as such it offers a lot of value to organization dealing with these types of problems. In addition to features of Camel, deployment options and monitoring strategies are also covered in reasonable detail which is nice. Although this book teaches one to use the EIPs in Camel, it does not provide a good description of the EIPs themselves, so one might want to supplement this with a book on EIPs. Note that at the time of writing of this book, Camel was at version 2.5 but as of now it is at version 2.7 - on the website code samples are provided for both 2.5 and 2.7 versions separately. I have no hesitation recommending this book to anyone who is interested in Camel.

A rare book... 23 Jan. 2012
By Broadmeadow - Published on
Format: Paperback
It isn't often that I give a technical book a 5 star rating. This is the exception because it is an exceptional book.

This book is fascinating reading and how often can you say that about a technical reference? As one goes through the material the author always seems to be at the place you need him to be at that moment. You don't get that "now waitaminit" feeling that other books can leave you with when they switch topics.

There are smooth context switches from how one uses the system to how one implements the details and then back up again. This makes it easy to follow and is one of the reasons it is actually fun to read.

Boy, fun to read, is that ever an exceptional technical book.

Camel in Action - book review 4 Feb. 2011
By Vikaskumar9 - Published on
Format: Paperback
Last few days I have been reading Camel In Action from Manning Publication. After reading this "In Action" series book, I must say as always manning books are great for beginner and advanced users. Let's talk about book "Camel In Action" this books provides good overview of "Apache Camel" and why it's one of the best Enterprise Integration Pattern out there. This books cover good implementation details about Apache Camel with lots of code example to make it easier for developers.

Inside the Book

Although, this book contain some where are around 14 chapter and all of them make it really good read. I'm going to cover first eight chapters as these chapters considered as core camel.

Chapter 1 - This Chapter names as "Meet with Camel", as described from its name, this chapter provides good details about Apache Camel and it's architecture.

Chapter 2&3- This chapter covers fundamental concepts like routing and transformation with some very good example codes.

Chapter 4- This chapter covers details about how to work with simple beans with Camel and also provides examples to integrate with Spring.

Chapter 5- Error handing as one of most important aspect of any programming, this chapter divide errors in two segment "recoverable" and "irrecoverable" and covers it very well
with some nice example.

Chapter 6 - Testing with Camel, as name suggested, this chapter talks about testing Junit and testing mock component with Camel.

Chapter 7- This chapter covers different components like Asynchronous messaging , web services camel.

Chapter 8 - Enterprise Integration Pattern, as name suggested this chapter cover fundamental of Enterprise Integration pattern and details about EIP (e.g aggregator, spillter)

There are some very interesting chapters ahead like transaction, concurrency and scalability, developing camel projects etc. Which makes this book a must read if you really want to know about "Apache Camel".
Excellent introduction to Camel that didn't forget about deployment and life after application is up and running 10 Oct. 2013
By vrto - Published on
Format: Paperback
I will start this review by telling you what this book is NOT. As we all know, Apache Camel is one of the most popular open source EIP (Enterprise Integration Patterns) implementations (and much more). This book though, is not mere description of how Camel implements EIP. Camel itself is much richer ecosystem than you might expect.

I have to say that structure of the book truly impressed me. Everything is very well organized, everything makes chronological sense. Samples (source code) for the book are chopped to reasonably small (but meaningful) chunks. Samples are easy to execute (via Maven) and everything works as expected.

This book will prepare you for the real-life usage of Camel - and I really mean it. You will start slowly learning the basics (something about EAI in general, core Camel concepts like routing, transformations, bean-using etc.), then you will slowly approach reality by learning other important stuff like how to handle errors or how to actually test your Camel applications.

After reading (roughly) half of the book you might already feel pretty confident about your new Camel knowledge and you might want to hop into a real life Camel project. But there's more! What other books often forget is what happens AFTER all those "hello world" examples are done.

This book is different. It didn't forget to tell you what to do after "hello world" examples. The last part of the book will tell you something about how does Camel participate in the transactional applications, something more about Camel's threading model and finally how to deploy and maintain (manage/monitor) existing Camel applications.

To sum up, I recommend this book to anyone interested in Camel as it successfully covers most important idioms around Camel AND teaches you what to do AFTER your Camel application is up and running.
