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.

elastic.io Integration Platform

elastic.io Integration Platform is well suited for developers already leveraging the Elastic Search cluster, who want to automate and simplify add-on integrations. If developers are streaming data between plugins and want to have event-based batching, this is a great product to do that, albeit a paid solution, it can enhance your deployment and automation of ES plugins.

Pros

Apache Camel

  • Camel has an easy learning curve. It is fairly well documented and there are about 5-6 books on Camel.
  • There is a large user group and blogs devoted to all things Camel and the developers of Camel provide quick answers and have also been very quick to patch Camel, when bugs are reported.
  • Camel integrates well with well known frameworks like Spring, and other middleware products like Apache Karaf and Servicemix.
  • There are over 150 components for the Camel framework that help integrate with diverse software platforms.
  • Camel is also good for creating microservices.

elastic.io Integration Platform

  • Unlike other integration platforms, using and implementing elastic.io is fairly simple and intuitive
  • You do not need to worry about scaling since it is taken care by the platform itself
  • Developing new connectors isn't complicated

Cons

Apache Camel

  • I find the "seda" endpoint to be less obvious that it is doing multi-threading than Spring Integration's executor mechanism.
  • Integration with Spring Beans is pretty good, but I believe SI's is a bit better (for obvious reasons, both being Spring products).
  • SI's use support is probably a bit better/faster and I believe the user base is larger so that there are most questions/answers for SI on StackOverflow

  • Paid solutions are always challenging when the tool itself is free
  • Available training for this paid solution

Alternatives Considered

Apache Camel

We chose Apache Camel because it was lightweight, easy to get started with and because it had a groovy DSL since we were a grails shop when we started using it.

Return on Investment

Apache Camel

  • Apache Camel is open source and Java based. So if your engineering team is strong in Java this could be a good framework to adopt.
  • Apache camel is open source.
  • Camel could be run on OSGi containers like Karaf or Fuse.
