Subject Re: Flatpack Example

Just a quick suggestion. Have you looked at the unit tests of camel-flatpack?
Often there is "good" examples there.

Also when something doesn't work, mention the Camel version, and what
runtime you use, eg Tomcat, ServiceMix etc.
And especially with OSGi, loading resources on classpath can be tricky.
