Since we're on a major migration process of this website, some component documents here are out of sync right now. In the meantime you may want to look at the early version of the new website
We would very much like to receive any feedback on the new site, please join the discussion on the Camel user mailing list.

Why did you choose the name Camel

  • it stands for Concise Application Message Exchange Language (i.e. the Java DSL for routing)
  • a Camel can carry 4 times the load of other beasts of burden
  • a Camel can travel for great distances without water; similarly a Camel does not require bucket loads of XML as you can use a pure Java DSL
  • some members of the team used to love Camel cigarettes!
  • its short, simple and easy to remember name
  • very fast, even when the going gets tough!
  • a Camel will never spit on those it loves!
  • a Camel is not an evolutionary dead end
  • a Camel looks really funny when its running, like most of the team (smile)
  • a Camel is a horse designed by committee (smile)
  • a Camel in Action is really funny

We generated some really cheesy tag lines like:

  • You can go a long way with Camel!
  • Don't get the hump get Camel!
  • No where to evolve to ? Get Camel!
  • One hump or two?
  • Don't get lost in a desert of XML config files, get Camel!
  • Its not a mirage, its a Camel!
