With the release of Apache Camel 2.21, some new components were added to the project and Camel WordPress was one of them. Camel is one of the upstream community projects for Red Hat Fuse. In this article, we will see how to use this new component to publish an auto-generated news post based on a soccer statistics API. The example consumes the statistics API, generates the text based on a Natural Language Generation (NLG) library and then publishes it to the WordPress blog.
WordPress is one of the most used open source tools for creating websites. More than 30% of the web is built on top of WordPress. Besides creating websites, blogs, and apps, WordPress leverages a huge plugin repository maintained by a passionate community. There are even plugins that can turn a WordPress website into an e-commerce platform.
Since version 4.7, WordPress exposes a REST API capable of interacting with its resources, for example, users, categories, pages, posts, and custom types. Now it’s possible for third parties to integrate with the WordPress platform and perform almost anything with their resources.
Some companies implement internal websites, blogs, and project sites using WordPress. Integrating such platforms with another company’s components—such as CRM, ERP, LDAP, and Calendar Services—would add extra value to WordPress-based projects. Camel WordPress can help integrate those components easily. To get started using this new component, nothing is better than a demo.

This is part one of my two-article series that demonstrates how to implement contract-first API design using Apicurio and Red Hat Fuse. It covers how to create an OpenAPI standard document as the contract between API providers and consumers using Apicurio Studio. It also shows how to quickly create mock tests using Red Hat Fuse which is based on Camel.
There are two common approaches when it comes to creating APIs:
- Code first (top-down)
- Contract first (bottom-up)

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:

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.

The community editions of JBoss Tools 4.5.3 and JBoss Developer Studio 11.3 for Eclipse Oxygen.3a are here waiting for you. Check it out!
JBoss Developer Studio comes with everything pre-bundled in its installer. Simply download it from our JBoss Products page and run it like this:
java -jar jboss-devstudio-<installername>.jar
JBoss Tools or Bring-Your-Own-Eclipse (BYOE) JBoss Developer Studio require a bit more:
This release requires at least Eclipse 4.7 (Oxygen) but we recommend using the latest Eclipse 4.7.3a Oxygen JEE Bundle since then you get most of the dependencies preinstalled.
Once you have installed Eclipse, you can either find us on the Eclipse Marketplace under “JBoss Tools” or “Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio”.
For JBoss Tools, you can also use our update site directly.
What is new?

Hopefully by now, you know how to write your first Rest DSL Camel Route using Spring Boot. If not, check this post first. Now that you have your route written, it’s time to write a unit test for it. Many people find Apache Camel unit testing a big struggle to figure out. Luckily, when using Spring Boot with the Apache Camel Rest DSL testing, a Rest Route isn’t too difficult.

In this article, we will discuss using the Apache Camel ZooKeeper component, and demonstrate how easily we can set up a fail-over scenario for Apache Camel Routes. While working in a clustered environment, situations arise where a user wants to have a backup or slave route which will become active only when the master (or the currently active) route stops working. There are different ways to achieve this: one can use Quartz to configure a master-slave setup; JGroups can also be used. In a Fabric8 environment, there is a master component which can easily be set up as a failover scenario.

Rest services are becoming more and more popular for communication between systems. Now that Red Hat supports the use of Red Hat JBoss Fuse with Apache Camel Spring Boot, learn how you can get started with the Rest DSL and Spring Boot. These directions will use the camel-servlet component, although various components can be used.

The next online DevNation Live Tech Talk will be Thursday, March 15th at 12pm EDT. The topic is Camel Riders in the Cloud presented by Claus Ibsen
Apache Camel has fundamentally changed the way enterprise Java™ developers think about system-to-system integration. It makes it easy to apply enterprise integration patterns (EIP) using simple declarations. The result is a lightweight application that is wrapped and delivered as a single JAR.
In this session, we’ll show you how to apply the best practices from the enterprise integration world to build microservices that are deployed as Linux® containers, running on top of Kubernetes and Red Hat OpenShift. These integration applications will be both cloud-native and cloud-portable.
Register now and join the live presentation at 12pm EDT, Thursday, March 15th.
Note: For those outside of the US, daylight savings time started this week, so the US East coast is now UTC – 4.

Apache Camel empowers you to define routing and mediation rules in a variety of domain-specific languages, including a Java-based Fluent API, Spring 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 HTTP, ActiveMQ, JMS, JBI, 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.
