NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant.

Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar. Understand more
Trial Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.
In today’s connected systems environments almost all new development needs to integrate with existing applications and services. In conjunction with our adoption of simple message buses and integration techniques at the edges of a system, we have successfully used small libraries such as Apache Camel to perform the protocol bridging, message transformation and message routing tasks common to such integrations. Camel’s fluent Java interface, unit testing support and connectors for many different transports and message formats provide for an effective anti-corruption layer when implementing distributed applications.
