Hi Henryk

Sounds really cool with a Camel exam at black belt.

1)
Apache Camel is implementing the famous EIP patterns from the EIP book
http://www.enterpriseintegrationpatterns.com/

So I believe the exam should outline this by covering maybe 6 or so
common patterns
- Content Based Router
- Pipes and Filters
- Message Translator
- Message Filter
- Recipient List
- and maybe WireTap

The more complex to use such as
- Splitter
- Aggregator
- Multicast
may be covered as well


2)
The Camel concepts and integration lingo in general should also be covered.
I would suggest to be inspired in the chapter 1 of the Camel in Action
book which explains those
http://www.manning.com/ibsen


3)
And yes getting practical and using Camel should be in there as well
- starting CamelContext from Java
- using CamelContext in a Spring XML file
- how to do routing in Java DSL and Spring XML
- using Processor
- using ProducerTemplate
- configuring endpoints using URLs


4)
In term of testing.
- Yeah cover Mock component
- I do NOT think you should cover DataSet as its not commonly used and
people should prefer to use JMeter or some other from for
load/stress/endurance testing
- The Test component is very seldom used, despite its name :)


But it does definitely look good with the current outline.
