Camel NMR Component

The Camel NMR component is an adapter to the Normalized Message Router (NMR) in ServiceMix, which is intended for use by Camel applications deployed directly into the OSGi container.


In order to be able to use this component, you first have to define it in your Spring configuration file (META-INF/spring/*.xml) by adding the following bean:

<beans xmlns:osgi="" ... >
    <bean id="nmr" class="org.apache.servicemix.camel.nmr.ServiceMixComponent">
        <property name="nmr">
            <osgi:reference interface="org.apache.servicemix.nmr.api.NMR" />

NMR consumer and producer endpoints

The following code:


Automatically exposes a new endpoint to the bus with endpoint name MyServiceEndpoint (see URI-format).

When an NMR endpoint appears at the end of a route, for example:


The messages sent by this producer endpoint are sent to the already deployed JBI endpoint.

URI format


URI Options

  • synchronous (defaults to false) :: When this is set to true on a consumer endpoint, an incoming, synchronous NMR Exchange will be handled on the sender's thread instead of being handled on a new thread of the NMR endpoint's thread pool
