    <h2><a href="">Happy
Birthday Camel</a></h2>
    <h4>Blog post  <b>added</b> by             <a href="">Claus
    <div class="notificationGreySide">
         <p>This month we celebrate the 4 year birthday of the Apache Camel project.
Camel was conceived as a sub project from Apache ActiveMQ project.<br/>
TODO: Photo</p>

<p>In fact the <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">first commit</a> of the project to Apache was
done by one of its founders, <a href="" class="external-link"
rel="nofollow">James Strachan</a>, on March 19th 2007.</p>

<p>The first public announcement of the project as posted on a blog by James on May
15th 2007, in his blog titled <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Enterprise Integration Patterns in Java</a>.</p>

<p>Apache Camel 1.0 was released on the 2th of July 2007 according to the <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">timestamp in the central Maven repository</a>.<br/>
What strikes me as really impressive with the 1.0 release was the envision of its founders
to emphasize on making<br/>
integration easier using EIPs and DSLs. The first release of Camel had its powerful Java DSL
and Spring XML from<br/>
the very beginning.</p>

<p>Over the course of time the Camel team have released many Camel releases.<br/>
A total of 11 release of the Camel 1.x series.<br/>
And so far 10 releases (and 3 milestones) of the Camel 2.x series.</p>

<p>The project has since grown tremendously and today is one of the most popular integration
frameworks out there.</p>

<p>In January 2009 the project became a <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">top level project</a> at Apache.</p>

<p>It is believed that one of the first public presentation of Apache Camel at a major
conference took place in 2008<br/>
where <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Bruce Snyder presented ActiveMQ and Camel</a><br/>
at several conferences.</p>

<p>Since then Camel have appeared in many public presentation, both at major conferences,
JUGs and other events.<br/>
We do have a number of links to those presentations at the <a href="/confluence/display/CAMEL/Articles"
title="Articles">Articles</a> page.</p>

<p>The popularity of the Camel project keep rising and at the end of last year, the
<a href="" class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Camel in Action</a>
book went into print.<br/>
Having a book published by the well respected Manning publication is a testimony of the popularity
of the project.</p>

<p>Today the Camel team is busy finalizing on the last bits for the upcoming Apache
<a href="/confluence/display/CAMEL/Camel+2.8.0+Release" title="Camel 2.8.0 Release">Camel
2.8.0 release</a>.</p>

<p>Happy birthday Camel.</p>

<p>On behalf of the Camel team<br/>
