 Having been a little inactive on the book reviewing front with Packt in the last couple of months.  They have been working on a new Camel book – in addition to the excellent Apache Camel Developer’s Cookbook and several smaller Instant books (Instant Apache Camel Message RoutingInstant Apache Camel Messaging System) and asked me to again prepublication review.

Does Packt need another Camel book?  Maybe, this new volume from what I have reviewed so far is focusing on custom development and certainly starts with the real Camel development basics.  So feels like it is more targeted to a complete newbie to Camel. Several chapters in and the book hasn’t faced into how Camel supports Enterprise Integration Patterns in a deep manner – although that may yet come.  Watch this space as I’ll  post on how the book is likely to shape up.
