    where does the "James Strachan" name come from in Fuse IDE tutorial

    David Peng Newbie

      I am a totally beginner, with some previous Talend experience, follow the Fuse IDE tutorial, I create the project and test it without problem.

         But as a programmer, it is always curious where the "James Strachan" name come from in Fuse IDE tutorial, I didn't see it in any text file, it is from src/data, but this is a new project, how come the message1 & message2 will be saved without any idea, is the IDE create a backdoor to download it online and save as local file for demo purpose.

          I really loss here, please explain a little bit more details, so I can understand it.

          Thanks.

          James Strachan is the creator of Apache Camel, and also one of the creators of Fuse IDE. He works for FuseSource / Red Hat. And you can find information about him on wikipedia etc.

           

          If you create a new fuse project and select the "camel-archetype-spring" etc then it creates a sample project. That project comes with 2 sample data, in the src/main/data directory (I think). And in these 2 files one of the messages has James Strachan as a person name. And the other Hiram Chirino. Hiram was also one of the Camel creators, and a co-worker with James. Hiram also works for us.

           

          So that is why you see these names. Sometimes when developers create sample data / unit tests etc. then may use person names of their fellow co workers.

           

          For example you can find some of the other Camel creates and key contributors in the unit test of Camel itself.

           

          And no Fuse IDE has no backdoor. It can run offline without internet connection. Though usually the first time you create a new project it may need to download extra files (eg Maven JARs).

            Thanks for your explain, it makes sense to reward the sample with the creator's name, I guess it is provided as the start point, so the user can change it later.
