Subject Re: web services integration with Apache Camel

Welcome to the Camel community.

If you are new to Camel then I suggest to read this article which
really explains well what Apache Camel is in a 5 minute read

Apache Camel is a framework (library if you will) that is not
dependent on a special server etc, so you can run Camel anywhere you
want - it just requires a JVM as its Jav based :)

All the software from Apache is 100% free and do not require any license etc.

If you are looking for a ESB product then Apache ServiceMix is built
with a number of Apache projects, which includes Camel, CXF, ActiveMQ
and Karaf as its container.

Though I suggest to start with Camel and add CXF (camel-cxf) for web
service, then you can easily run that in Tomcat and also in the cloud

How to run Camel in Web application

As well some of  the examples shows that as well

And down the road if you are looking for commercial support and the
likes with Apache Camel, then take a look at:
