Clojure Programming Cookbook

Overview of this book

When it comes to learning and using a new language you need an effective guide to be by your side when things get rough. For Clojure developers, these recipes have everything you need to take on everything this language offers. This book is divided into three high impact sections. The first section gives you an introduction to live programming and best practices. We show you how to interact with your connections by manipulating, transforming, and merging collections. You’ll learn how to work with macros, protocols, multi-methods, and transducers. We’ll also teach you how to work with languages such as Java, and Scala. The next section deals with intermediate-level content and enhances your Clojure skills, here we’ll teach you concurrency programming with Clojure for high performance. We will provide you with advanced best practices, tips on Clojure programming, and show you how to work with Clojure while developing applications. In the final section you will learn how to test, deploy and analyze websocket behavior when your app is deployed in the cloud. Finally, we will take you through DevOps. Developing with Clojure has never been easier with these recipes by your side!

Using Apache Camel to connect everything

Apache Camel is a rule-based routing and mediation engine that provides the Enterprise Integration Patterns using an API or declarative Java domain-specific language to configure routing and mediation rules.

Getting ready

In this recipe, we will use the Java Camel library. So, you need to add the org.apache.camel/camel-core to your project.clj:

(defproject chapter04 "0.1.0" 
:dependencies [[org.clojure/clojure "1.8.0"] 
                 [org.apache.camel/camel-core "2.16.1"] 

How to do it...

Here, we will learn basic uses of Camel from Clojure.

Importing Camel classes

The following code imports the Camel classes that we will use:

(ns chapter04.camel 
  (:import [org.apache.camel.impl DefaultCamelContext] 
           [org.apache.camel.builder RouteBuilder] 
           [org.apache.camel.main Main] 
           [org.apache.camel Exchange] 
           [org.apache.camel Processor]  

Your first ride...
