<p>I guess from 30,000 feet they're kinda <a href="/confluence/display/CAMEL/Why+the+name+Camel"
title="Why the name Camel">similar beasts</a>; they're both kinds of routing/mediation
engines. The main differences are as follows </p>

	<li>Camel uses a Java <a href="/confluence/display/CAMEL/DSL" title="DSL">Domain
Specific Language</a> in addition to Spring XML for configuring the routing rules and
providing <a href="/confluence/display/CAMEL/Enterprise+Integration+Patterns" title="Enterprise
Integration Patterns">Enterprise Integration Patterns</a></li>
	<li>Camel's API is smaller &amp; cleaner (IMHO) and is closely aligned with the
APIs of <a href="/confluence/display/CAMEL/JBI" title="JBI">JBI</a>, <a href="/confluence/display/CAMEL/CXF"
title="CXF">CXF</a> and <a href="/confluence/display/CAMEL/JMS" title="JMS">JMS</a>;
based around message exchanges (with in and optional out messages) which more closely maps
to REST, WS, WSDL &amp; JBI than the UMO model Mule is based on</li>
	<li>Camel allows the underlying transport details to be easily exposed (e.g. the JmsExchange,
JbiExchange, HttpExchange objects expose all the underlying transport information &amp;
behaviour if its required). See <a href="/confluence/display/CAMEL/How+does+the+Camel+API+compare+to"
title="How does the Camel API compare to">How does the Camel API compare to</a></li>
	<li>Camel supports an implicit <a href="/confluence/display/CAMEL/Type+Converter"
title="Type Converter">Type Converter</a> in the core API to make it simpler to connect
components together requiring different types of payload &amp; headers</li>
	<li>Camel uses the Apache 2 License rather than Mule's more restrictive commercial
