Subject ).Re: Add property to Route (not Exchange)
Date Wed, 04 Apr 2012 20:35:46 GMT
Kinda. What about convention over configuration and have the color in 
the route id (e.g. id="red.something" and if id.startsWith("red.") then 
garbage collect. Also keep in mind that the RouteBuilder creates just a 
model, not the route themselves.
