Apache Camel

Message brokering across different systems, with transactionality and the ability to have fine tuned control over what happens using Java (or other languages), instead of a heavy, proprietary languages.One situation that it doesn't fit very well (as far as I have experienced) is when your workflow requires significant data mapping. While possible when using Java tooling, some other visual data mapping tools in other integration frameworks are easier to work with.

Pros

  • EIP - enterprise integration patterns. Read events from queue, route to different processes and work on the messages.
  • REST APIs- Apache CXF is used and Camel could be used to provide endpoints.
  • Batches - Camel could be used to trigger batches and do large scale processing, using its throttling. It provides lots of connectors to work with.

  • dfPower Studio connects to virtually any data source, and any dfPower Studio user in any department can use dfPower Studio to profile, cleanse, integrate, enrich, monitor, and otherwise improve data quality throughout the enterprise. dfPower Architect, an innovative job flow builder, enables users to build complex management workflows quickly and logically.
  • DataFlux Integration Server supports the ability to run batch dfPower Studio jobs in a client/server environment.
  • DataFlux Integration Server for SAS additionally enables allows SAS programs to invoke DataFlux batch jobs from a SAS program and allows SAS programs to call a business service that was designed in the dfPower Studio client environment.

Cons

  • I feel that Apache Camel is lacking a Spring XD like framework integration with big data capabilities.
  • Apache Camel seems to be very dependent on Spring.

  • DataFlux handled all of our data integration needs. It could be considered pricey when compared to Microsoft's bundled SSIS product.

We are happy with the software and its functionality. As a SAS-shop, DataFlux is a logical choice for complex data integration.

Alternatives Considered

Akka or Spring Integration/ XD are alternatives to Apache Camel and very good frameworks on their own (especially Akka which provides a single threaded illusion).

Return on Investment

  • There was certainly a positive impact in terms of code maintainability and ease of implementing new messaging pipelines, however, it's a little difficult to quantify.
