    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.

    Anypoint Platform

    [MuleSoft] Anypoint Platform fits for an enterprise company that wants to gain time with environment configuration. The deployment environment - pre-prod and prod - is ready to use once you access Anypoint Platform. It's true you can customize all configurations for your environment based on your requirements and needs, but if you don't, just deploy and run your APIs.For small business, Mule doesn't have a low-cost subscription which can attend small companies. The subscription and license prices are too high for a startup with limited financial resources.

    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.

    Anypoint Platform

    • API Manager provides easy API Policy Governance. You do not have to manage multiple platforms for managing the policies.
    • Supports hybrid Mule EBS environments. You can configure both CouldHub-based and on-premise-based API using Mulesoft API manager in a similar manner.
    • It's very easy to implement API proxy.
    • User friendly UI.
    • Single platform to manage all.

    Cons

    Apache Camel

    • Open source solution relies on community for support
    • Lacks graphical user interface for message routing and transformation definitions
    • Relatively steep learning curve

    Anypoint Platform

    • Has more features than what we really need so we're paying for more than we use. Sort of like paying for an Abrams tank when all we really need is a Toyota Corolla.
    • Not a value product, tends to be expensive.
    • Takes a while for developers to learn to use Mulesoft Anypoint.

    Anypoint Platform support is very responsive. There is also a huge knowledge base and an active online forum where answers to most questions can be found. When needed support engages the engineering group so adequate solutions or workarounds are always provided.

    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.

    Anypoint Platform

    The main problem with this software is the different connector type that is used for different protocols except for a different SAP connector. There is only one connector called SAP. It will be great if there will have a different connectors like idoc, RFC, proxy, etc.

    Return on Investment

    Apache Camel

    • huge cost saving and quick turn around in terms of extracting data from files and integrating them to our processes
    • ease the work with java objects
    • modernizing our API services
    • ease of using it with Apache's TomCat server

    Anypoint Platform

    • If you are a big size organization that heavily uses API's and SaaS-based integration, Anypoint platform is great. However, if your API implementations are not in Mulesoft, hosting just API specs is not worth it in terms of ROI.
    • Mulesoft uses propitiatory language which makes it difficult to write custom code when required, some other iPaaS platforms like Webmethods.io uses nodeJS which makes it easier to write custom code. In short, when you need to write custom code, building and supporting is a challenge.
