Apache Camel for Eclipse

This is a preview release of the Eclipse plugin that adds Apache Camel language support for XML DSL and Java DSL code.


After you add this extension to your Eclipse IDE installation, when you use the generic Eclipse text editor, you can access the following Apache Camel language service features for Apache Camel URIs (both XML DSL and Java DSL):

  • Auto-completion for Camel components, attributes, and the list of attribute values

  • Quick reference documentation when you hover the cursor over a Camel component

  • Provide a specific Camel catalog version through preferences

  • Provide a specific runtime provider of Camel catalog through preferences

  • Specify Kafka connection URl through preferences for dynamic completion on Camel kafka component

  • Specify a list of additional Camel components

When you use the XML or Java editor, only the auto-completion feature is provided.
