Hi Claus Ibsen and Jonathan Anstey

Congrats on bring out this book. I work for a investment bank where we will soon build from scratch an application which will have connections to ECNs like bloomberg, tradeweb , market axcess. The trades will come via these ECNs and then after normalization into a common format , a router will route to different inhouse trading systems these trades based on content. I am exploring if i can leverage open source frameworks like Camel, Netty ( for TCP/IP & Protocol buffer ), Hibernate or mybatis etc.

What are your views on application of Camel to the above scenario.

Camel have made inroads into most common business sectors out there.
We have a survey running now and about 25% of the responses are in the finance or insurance industry.

Camel would match in such a scenario. It integrates with Netty, ibatis and hibernate.
And if it doesnt then its just Java code and its easy to create a new Camel component or just integrate directly from Java code.

Camel is a very flexible and light weight integration framework with EIP and routing.

Here is a list of all the EIPs supported

Which means you can use it to route to those different inhouse trading systems.

And it offers a feature called DataFormat you can use to transform data to well known standards

Again if a format is missing you can build you custom.

And Camel is now being integrated out of the box with many other frameworks such as Smooks, Drools, and whatnot. An ever growing list is here

But the important part is that you are given the time to look out and POC the various pieces you find to fulfill you integration jigsaw
