And the book has been very well received within the community, and helped a lot of people getting onboard riding the Camel.
Jonathan and I have done our best to keep the material in the book as up to date to the lastest Camel release. In fact during the type setting period (that takes 4 months) we ensure that material was updated accordingly to new Apache Camel releases. So when the book went into production it was up to date with the Apache Camel 2.5.0 release from October 31st 2010.
Ever since the book was published we have been active on the Author Online forum to catch the minor mistakes and feedback you may have. The errata of the book is fully up to date. In fact the errata was updated as late of a couple of months ago.
Likewise the accompanying source code of the book has been kept up to date with the newer Camel releases, up till the lates official release 2.9.2 And this time we have prepared the source code for the upcoming Camel 2.10 release (currently expected to be GA next week).
Myself, as a reader of other books, this kind of service is rare. Most authors do not bother to even keep an errata, or make sure their source code actually works.
In fact we use the source code for the book as a test suite for the upcoming Apache Camel releases. In fact it was due to this source code we caught a regression in the 2.10 release, that we had to fix that and recut a new release candidate.
So with that in mind, its sad to see a reader post a bad review on Amazon (Click on image to read).
