Hi,

Is JDK 1.7 mandatory with the latest source codes? I get below error when I try to exec Chapter 1 code with JRE 1.6:

Yes Apache Camel 2.14 onwards requires and support JDK 1.7 and 1.8.
Older versions of Camel requires and supports JDK 1.6 and 1.7.

So if you must use JDK 1.6 then use latest 2.13.x release.

The source code for the book that uses Camel 2.13.x is here: https://github.com/camelinaction/camelinaction/releases/tag/2.13.2

Btw a good idea when upgrading Camel is to read the release notes "Important changes to ..." for each release in between. For 2.14 you can see that JDK 1.6 is no longer supported:
