Subject Re: Camel-REST vs Cxfrs
Date Tue, 01 Nov 2016 10:48:31 GMT
There are some JIRA tickets to integrate camel-cxf with rest-dsl.
However this requires some changes in CXF to facilitate this.

Some of the CXF committers from Talend said they would like to work on
that, but they don't seem to had the time yet to work on this.

That said you can always code REST services using plain JAX-RS java
code style also. Or if using Spring Boot then how they do it with
their controllers.

Camel in Action 2nd ed book has a full chapter on REST and various
ways to use it with Camel.
