Camel 2.13 will probably include the OptaPlanner component.
This makes it easier to integrate OptaPlanner in Camel, for example to expose OptaPlanner as a REST or SOAP service.
WARNING: This is only the first iteration of this component. The tests show it works. Feedback to expand its scope and features are welcome.
Special thanks to Charles Moulliard for explaining Camel basics to me and Claus Ibsen for polishing the code.
