camel Junit Test Using Java DSL

Camel Junit Test Example Using Java DSL with simple steps.

In this tutorial we create one route and test it using camel inbuilt Test support.

  • In eclipse go to MyFirstCamelProject that we created in earlier page and right click on src/main/java to create package.New -> package

  • Give any name for example com.preparationforinterview and click on Finish

  • Right click on package and create a java class for example FileCopyExample.

  • Add following dependency in pom.xml can use any latest version.

    <project xmlns="" xmlns:xsi=""
  • Run mvn:install from command prompt or if you are using Eclipse right click on pom.xml and run mvn install.It will download camel jars

  • Copy below code in FileCopyExample.

    	package com.preparationforinterview;
    	import org.apache.camel.builder.RouteBuilder;
    	public class FileCopyExample extends RouteBuilder {
    	public void configure() throws Exception {


    To create a route in camel we need to extend RouteBuilder class and override configure method.In configure method we define our route.In above example we can read it as from input folder take file and send it to output folder.Here file: is called endpoint.

    Code for Junit Test

  • Now to test above route we will create one test class for example FileCopyExampleTest

  • At the end we will have following structure

  • Copy below code in FileCopyExampleTest.

    package com.preparationforinterview;
    import org.apache.camel.Exchange;
    import org.apache.camel.builder.RouteBuilder;
    import org.apache.camel.test.junit4.CamelTestSupport;
    import org.junit.Test;
    public class FileCopyExampleTest extends CamelTestSupport {
    	protected RouteBuilder createRouteBuilder() throws Exception {
    		return new FileCopyExample();
    	public void setUp() throws Exception {
    	public void testFileCopy() throws Exception {
    		template.sendBodyAndHeader("file:input", "Hello World",
    				Exchange.FILE_NAME, "hello.txt");
    		File target = new File("output/hello.txt");
    		assertTrue("File not moved", target.exists());
    		String content = context.getTypeConverter().convertTo(String.class,
    		assertEquals("Hello World", content);


    To get camel test kit advantage we need to extend CamelTestSupport.CamelTestSupport class is wrapped on Junit.When we extend CamelTestSupport then we need to override one method createRouteBuilder.In that method create an object of route class.In our case we have done FileCopyExample.To test router we created method annotated with @Test. In that method we are sending Hello World text hello.txt file.To give time to copy we are waiting 2 second.After that as router in FileCopyExample should copy file to output folder ,so we pick that file and check content.It should be same as input file.template and context we get from CamelTestSupport.

    To check the output right click on and run it.It will pass test case.
    To run the program from command prompt,open command prompt and go to project location and run below command.
    mvn compile exec:java -Dexec.mainClass=com.preparationforinterview.FileCopyExampleTest
