Polling a JSON REST API using a custom Apache Camel component

via PALO IT – Polling a JSON REST API using a custom Apache Camel component.

If you have been playing around with integration frameworks, you are probably aware of Apache Camel, as it is one of the two big open source players together with the Spring Integration framework. While benchmarking Talend ESB and Redhat Fuse ESB products, which both include Apache Camel in their stack, I had the opportunity to dive a bit more into the concepts of the framework and figured there was some interesting material for a blog post !

The purpose of this post is to provide some guidelines to build a custom Camel component for your enterprise integration needs. Our example will show how to poll an external JSON-based REST API – in this case, the Feedly API – to periodically retrieve and process information – in this case, to log retrieved RSS feed titles.
