Ok, a bit confused by this no doubt from lack of experience with Camel.
Thanks for your time/assistance. So this is what I would like to do and
please tell me whether this is possible or not (and if so, how to go about
it would be great too):

On the camel server I want to set up a route(endpoint?) into which some
external system using rabbitMQ can post messages. I will have zero control
over when or if the external system decides to send anything, I just need a
way to receive its messages when/if they decide to send them. So when I
start my camel server I would like it to come up and be ready to receive
these messages - again with no guarantee as to when or if I will get

For testing purposes I have a laptop on the network set up with RabbitMQ so
I can eventually use it to send messages to the Camel server. But the
question is how to get the camel server set up in the first place?

Thanks again!
