LJC: Effective System Integrations with Apache Camel

*Please note this is an LJC event. Skills Matter are hosting this event and are handling the attendance - it is essential that you confirm your place at this link:

Effective System Integrations with Apache Camel 
Presented by Jakub Korab - Approx 1 hour not incl Q&A

The way that we build system integrations at present sees us spending far too much time on the same repetitive plumbing code required to talk to web services, messaging systems and data stores. At the same time, the tiered architectures that we commonly apply to these problems hide the brittleness of our integration logic and make it difficult to reason about failure conditions. 

In this session, you will be introduced to the tools that Apache Camel gives you out of the box that take away the burden of the plumbing, and free you up to build rock-solid integrations. We will discuss the impacts of common integration failures, and a set of Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIPs) that enables you to work around these to ensure consistency across the impacted systems.

The evening will also be the official UK launch of the Apache Camel Developer's Cookbook, which contains over 100 recipes for working with Apache Camel - each backed by a suite of code examples written in both of its main DSLs.

This talk will be given with the assistance of a Powerpoint presentation, with code examples drawn from the book. There will be some book giveaways and a brief Q&A session afterwards.

Who should attend:

Developers and architects working with systems integrations, or those who are about to get into the field.


Jakub Korab is a specialist consultant working in open source integration and messaging, and co-author of the Apache Camel Developer's Cookbook. Over the last 3 years, he has helped over 40 clients to tackle complex integration problems across industries that have included finance, e-commerce, national road billing, shipping and space exploration. In the days before, he glued systems together in banks down in London's Canary Wharf.
