Subject Re: [jira] Created: (CAMEL-1183) rename multicast -> wireTap in the Java DSL and XML config?

Refresh my memory - what is it about wireTap that doesn't suit? (If

To me wireTap feels / sounds like a way to "tap into" a message, where the
*other* receivers are not the primary, ie, that there is one primary and
'tapped to' endpoints are secondary.

Think of MI5, FBI or AFP (aussie fed police) tapping your phone, they are
not the intended recipient of the message, but they get one (lots).

In a loan broker example, where we call out to multiple loan providers, they
are all the intended recipient, so the wireTap seems though it is not suited
for this position, based on it's name.

    "I don't want to "wire tap" a message to them, I want to send to all."

My current use of the <multicast> and in documentation I explain to others
kind of fits into a Blind (don't look at message) Recipient List.

.. hope that makes sense. (and the icon fits)
