    Spring Roo title

    "Rapid Application development for the enterprise".

    It fits the RAD attributes of ROO and highlights the enterprise world of Java.

        Just saw a Nike commercial for the World Cup I think. Hat Wayne Rooney in it.

        One of the lines: Just Roo It!

        So, I think that one is gone.

          Spring Roosters

          Irreverently irrelevant, but

          Spring Roosters = Programmers who use Spring Roo
          Spring Chickens = Programmers who need introduction to Roo

          BTW, what is the history of choosing the name "Roo"?

            In a comment by Ben Alex on his own Blog he made the following statement:

            Regarding the name "Roo", we brainstormed about 20 names before SpringOne Europe. We then eliminated those subject to existing trademarks and similar considerations. You'd be surprised how many great names you just can't use due such factors! Anyhow, those names that remained were put to the community to vote and "Roo" was the hands-down winner (as mentioned in my entry above). The name Roo originally came from "Real Object Oriented", but we dropped that given the focus shifted to sustainable productivity when I resumed work on the project. Because I still called the code "Roo" when talking to colleagues, it became the de facto project name. When we saw the names that survived trademark review, we thought it would be nice to at least throw Roo in there and that's the story of the name! You're also right in that you pronounce it like "Foo".
            Roo is also a short form of kangaroo, which you probably did not know if you live outside Australia like me.

            And another slogan suggestion:
            Spring Roo
            Productivity from the Source

                    "Just Roo it" was definitely the best, this should get like the "special consideration prize" or something.
                    "Rapid Application development for the enterprise" is the most boring but the most accurate and probably the best from a promotion point of view.

                              platform, seam, pain, -less enterprise development for perfectionists with deadlines.

                              (you converted one python developer here, and I'm not competing, I'd just like to show my appreciation.)
