Look inside
Apache Camel is a lightweight and easy to use integration framework that forms the backbone of numerous distributed systems. In this liveProject, you’ll go hands-on with Apache Camel to build a working medical registration system from scratch.

Your system will help a busy hospital unite laboratory information systems, patient records, and practice management systems that track appointments and finance. Your challenges will include developing API and integration challenges for a new patient portal, and integrating it into your records system. This kind of IT portal is in high demand from any industry that wants to streamline its information, and automate costly human-fronted customer services.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
