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!

  • it’s 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 it’s 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!

  • It’s not a mirage, it’s a Camel!
