      Description

      Since changing loads of types from "boolean" -> "Boolean", we left many of the getter methods using "isFoo" rather than changing them to the Java Beans compliant "getFoo". Breaking the Java Beans specification for naming properties can cause issues with libraries and tools; since the property is no longer introspectable or readable in any introspection based tool (of which there are loads around).

      e.g. go to camel-core/src/main/java/org/apache/camel/model/ then in your IDE search for "Boolean is". Those isFoo methods returning Boolean should be returned isFoo.

      For completeness we could also generate an isFoo for backwards compatibility that looks like...

      public boolean isFoo()

      { return foo != null && foo.booleanValue(); }
