in reply to Information (or knowing where to find it) is key

Maybe it's better to familiarize oneself with the documentation by reading through it "diagonally". Just enough to know which document contains what. It takes some time, but I find it's worth the investment.

Update: Incidently, reading through the docs you'll probably find a number of features you didn't know about, an added bonus ;)

Just my 2 cents, -gjb-

    I'll second the suggestion to read the docs. I start working my way through the camel book every once in a while and always manage to pick up something I missed before.

    I've always tried to understand the concepts when learning something new. You can always look up the details.
