Scott England-Sullivan

Dev Ops: Enabling Clients For Integration
Scott England-Sullivan, Principal Domain Architect, Red Hat

Due to its robust mediation and transformation capabilities, Camel is considered an industry leader and first choice in many organizations as their primary integration API in the service layer. Those same capabilities make Camel a powerful client that can enable Dev Ops teams to create reusable and scalable service layer clients for use in the application layer. In this demo we look at how Camel can abstract away the complexity of low level transport and messaging protocols starting with the basics of Camel’s Producer and Consumer APIs. Then we will look at an example of abstracting away the low level Camel APIs by creating a reusable custom API project to deliver a reusable API. Finally we will cover creating a reusable service component to simplify deployment, management and configuration of our newly created reusable API.

Integration of Air Traffic Control Systems using Enterprise Integration Patterns and Apache Camel
David Mattioli, Senior Staff Software Engineer, Lockheed Martin
Kiran Chittargi, Senior Staff Software Engineer, Lockheed Martin
Mike Pone, Senior Staff Software Engineer, Lockheed Martin

We will present our experiences with developing an application using open source Enterprise Integration Patterns to integrate components of an air traffic control system. We will show the goals of the application as User Stories and Issues in the Agile Development Methodology. Most importantly, we will demonstrate how using the Apache Camel implementation of Enterprise Integration Patterns led us to a paradigm shift in the way we think of and design integration software. We stopped thinking of integration code in terms of classes and operations on those classes. Instead, we found it is more intuitive to think of software integration in terms of Camel routes, components, endpoints, and processors. This approach resulted in a flexible and extendable software design with a small code base consisting of Camel components and processors that can be easily reused in unforeseen ways.

David Mattioli has been working exclusively on JAVA in a variety of projects involving Unmanned Air Vehicles, DARPA research programs, Navy Systems, and Air Traffic Control Systems.

Banking on Apache Camel [download slides]
Rohit Sitani, Senior Technology Consultant, Capgemini

Internet banking platforms within a Bank are an integration layer with a GUI on the top. Banks own multiple systems of record also known as “Host Systems”. These are usually legacy applications, often running on mainframes to manage accounts, loans, cards, etc. One of the key roles of any customer facing channel within a bank is to integrate these systems and collate this disparate information in a meaningful way and thereby presenting a one-bank view to the customer. In this session, we will discuss how we are using Fuse Mediation Router (Apache Camel) to replace homegrown integration code with an industry-hardened library to power the APIs for mobile banking. Using Camel has provided us with a host of benefits. In this talk we will demonstrate three benefit – testing, simplification and parallel processing.

With a career in the IT industry for over 7 years, Rohit Sitani brings with him experience across multiple disciplines including consumer facing inter-banking applications, and responsive web platforms.
