How do you use your Apache Camel?

The Apache Camel project has been growing by leaps and bounds lately it seems. Much of this growth has been driven by a vibrant community (many thanks to all users! :) ). Its typically hard though to know what kind of applications Camel is being used in. We don't have much visibility into the cool stuff people are doing with Camel. In particular, in would be nice to know what other applications are being used with Camel... eg. CMSs, DBs, ESBs, App Servers, web frameworks, other frameworks, etc etc

I've started a thread here trying to capture how folks are using Camel. Please, if you're a user of Camel, take a minute to share how it is being used on the thread or here. This will only help us make Camel better and more useful in the future. No confidential info allowed, of course ;)

Creating Apache Camel projects with m2eclipse

I just noticed today that Apache Camel shows up by default in the m2eclipse New Maven Project dialog. No extra fooling around is required anymore. Very cool!

This is by far the easiest way to get started with Apache Camel - you don't even have to leave your IDE.
