Camel and HornetQ as JMS provider

In my current project we're utilizing JBoss HornetQ as the messaging bus, and I wanted to try out how Camel could connect to it. My intention was to have the HornetQ instance running externally from the Camel application and connect to it. There are a bunch of examples on how to embedd HornetQ 2.2.5 (the release I'm dealing with) inside Spring, but I could'nt find a single one for how to connect to an external instance.

For my own reference I post the working solution here which uses HornetQ's JNDI to lookup the ConnectionFactory as well as a Spring JNDI template.
