Camel Spit

What goes into a When?
Isn’t it great when you get an excuse to learn something? Even though you have a to-do list the length of your leg already?  Inspired by this potential enhancement to Apache Camel, intrigued by Xtext and (crucially) enabled by two full batteries and a flight to Boston, I hacked up a simple grammar for a DSL to describe Apache Camel routes and generated a syntax-checking Eclipse editor. It’s not pretty yet, but you can see the result at the Camel Extra project - introducing the charmingly named Camel Spit.
