Camel K standalone Java file: Now with Java language support

Camel K standalone Java file: Now with Java language support

Apache Camel K should be as lightweight as possible. Therefore, the Camel K project provides standalone Java files to describe a Camel integration. The downside to this practice is that existing IDEs cannot provide complete support out of the box. To provide a complete experience with Apache Camel K’s standalone Java files, there were three solutions:

As a result, there is no intuitive configuration. However, Red Hat’s Tooling for Apache Camel K offers a new possibility.

Apache Camel K development inside Eclipse Che: Iteration 1

Apache Camel K development inside Eclipse Che: Iteration 1

The Eclipse Che 7.6.0 release provides a new stack for Apache Camel K integration development. This release is the first iteration to give a preview of what is possible. If you like what you see, shout it out, and more will surely come.

This article details how to test this release on a local instance deployed on minikube. The difference with a hosted instance is that we avoid the prerequisites involving Camel K installation in the cluster and specific rights for the user.

VS Code Language support for Apache Camel 0.0.20 release

VS Code Language support for Apache Camel 0.0.20 release

During the past months, several noticeable new features have been added to improve the developer experience of application based on Apache Camel. These updates are available in the 0.0.20 release of Visual Studio (VS) Code extension.

Before going into the list of updates in detail, I want to note that I mentioned in the title the VS Code Extension release because VS Code extension is covering the broader set of new features. Don’t worry if you are using another IDE, though, most features are also available in all other IDEs that support the Camel Language Server (Eclipse Desktop, Eclipse Che, and more).

A look at development environments with specific tooling for Apache Camel Language

A look at development environments with specific tooling for Apache Camel Language

A growing set of editors and IDEs provides specific tooling for development of applications based on Apache Camel. Historically, there was only Eclipse Fuse Tooling, which was based on the Eclipse Desktop IDE. Then, an IntelliJ plugin was created. Both of these tools are tightly coupled to the specific IDE APIs. Consequently, they have the drawback of not easily sharing the development effort.

Supported editors and IDEs

Thanks to Language Server Protocol, with a core server and several configurations or small client development, Apache Camel Language can now be enjoyed on a growing set of environments:

Using VS Code to develop Spring Boot-based Camel and Red Hat Fuse projects

Using VS Code to develop Spring Boot-based Camel and Red Hat Fuse projects

Developing Apache Camel and Red Hat Fuse applications inside VS Code is improving! In my previous articles, I’ve mentioned that Camel URI completion is available in VS Code for XML and Java DSL. By leveraging several VS Code extensions, it is now possible to have an end-to-end development experience. The Camel tooling currently available in VS Code is primarily targeting Spring Boot– based Camel applications. The tooling covers the development process from creating a Camel project, testing, and debugging it locally, to automatically-rebuilding and redeploying it on your local OpenShift/Kubernetes instance when you make changes.

There are several ways to leverage the VS Code tooling. I will show the process which I believe is the easiest one to get started with.

Apache Camel URI Completion with Java DSL

Apache Camel URI Completion with Java DSL

Apache Camel URI completion has already been available for XML DSL in Eclipse Desktop, Eclipse Che, Red Hat OpenShift.io, Visual Studio Code and IntelliJ. However, for Java DSL it was available only in IntelliJ. But Visual Studio Code and Eclipse Desktop are now also providing the Apache Camel URI completion for Java DSL.

Below, you can see it in action:

Apache Camel URI completion: easy installation for Eclipse, VS Code, and OpenShift.io

Apache Camel URI completion: easy installation for Eclipse, VS Code, and OpenShift.io

Discoverability and ease of installation of Apache Camel tooling based on the Language Server Protocol has been improved. Manual download and installation of binaries is no longer necessary!  For the Eclipse desktop IDE and the VS Code environment you can now find and install the Camel tooling directly from the marketplaces for each development environment.

Camel Language Server is now also available in Red Hat OpenShift.io!

In this article, I will show you how you can install Camel tooling via the marketplaces for Eclipse and VS Code.  I will also show how to enable Camel tooling in your OpenShift.io workspace.

Apache Camel URI completion in VS Code XML Editor and Eclipse Che

Apache Camel URI completion in VS Code XML Editor and Eclipse Che

Apache Camel empowers you to define routing and mediation rules in a variety of domain-specific languages, including a Java-based Fluent APISpring or Blueprint XML Configuration files, and a Scala DSL. It also uses URIs to work directly with any kind of Transport or messaging model such as HTTPActiveMQJMSJBI, SCA, MINA or CXF, as well as pluggable Components and Data Format options. Apache Camel is a small library with minimal dependencies for easy embedding in any Java application.
