In the examples of the previous chapters, we used endpoints with the following syntax:
For instance, we can have a route as follows:
<from uri="timer:fire?period=5000"/> <to uri="log:myLog"/>
This route uses two endpoints (
log). Camel implicitly creates a Message Channel between the two endpoints.
The purpose is to decouple the endpoint producing the message from the application consuming the message.
This EIP is actually used in basically all routes in an implicit way (you don't have to use a special notation to use Message Channel, it's in Camel).
