Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Camel and MongoDB
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2012 21:09:05 GMT
Last year I created a MongoDB component for our client.
The use case was to stream events in the form of java beans into a
mongodb using the Morphia [1] library.
It was almost similar to the camel-jpa component.
That package is not in a "releaseable" state though, but I mention it
just to say that it was very easy to build, and to use, in a plain
(annotated) java bean scenario
and might be a nice-to-have feature.
