Surfing the web I discovered a nice little tutorial on how to use Fuse IDE for designing a Apache Camel route and deploying it to Apache ServiceMix.
Here are the links to the 2 part tutorial done by Shaun Oosthuizen:
Thanks for the great tutorial, Shaun.
I also want to mention that Fuse IDE is still in beta phase and we put a lot of effort in that product. A new feature added today is the possibility to launch a route within Eclipse as a local camel context. This can be done via the context menu on a Camel context file or by manually creating a launch configuration for the local camel context. Both should startup a local camel instance and deploy your route there for testing purposes.
We will also provide integration for Apache Karaf and Apache ServiceMix in future releases.
Check the update site often so you will have the latest stuff installed.
