Apache Camel

Camel is very suited where ever you want to use enterprise integration patterns like endpoint integration, routers, aggregators, splitters etc. Also Camel can be used for REST endpoints, designing event driven systems and integration with queues and it provides whole lot of connectors for integration with social etc.

Oracle Service Bus

OSB is a great tool and works well for both Integration and virtualization. Now OSB is available on the cloud as part of SOACS. The customer has a choice either to go with a cloud version or an on-premise version. There is another newer cloud-based integration platform (iPaaS) called Oracle Integration Cloud. OSB may not be the best fit for Bulk and batch integration as well as for complex integration/orchestration.

Pros

  • Configuration of information routing via XML in a Sprint Context.
  • Robustness. Apache Camel is capable of handling many different information transfer protocols out-of-the-box.
  • Extensibility. Apache Camel also allows for custom routing handlers where needed.

  • Location Transparency of sensitive endpoints
  • Proxy legacy systems exposed as web services
  • Transformation and routing
  • Service aggregation of various services

Cons

  • Some of the documentation is a little sparse. In particular, its TCP-based routes use an underlying Netty server, and the interactions between Netty's decoder capabilities and Apache Camel's routing/handler capabilities can be a little muddy at times. In general it is clear which routes and endpoints are the more frequently used and which haven't been given as much attention.

  • Rest services support is not good
  • Preview of transformations
  • Tracing of requests in a detailed manner

We have had not many issues with Oracle Service Bus and it's very stable for our requirements. It's highly available and helps us implement Tier1 applications on it.

Oracle Service Bus9.0
Based on 1 answer
It's an excellent enterprise service bus and has very stable features. We have been using it since 2008. We did hit into some issues. But, recreating the service helped fix many issues. Also, deployment to various environments was easy. Also, the plugin on Eclipse helps to build proxy and business services quick and easy.

Oracle Service Bus6.0
Based on 1 answer
We had some issues with MQ connectivity through OSB and our experience was poor with the support team. They do respond. But, it felt like we are ignored and we had bad support. We had to escalate and things used to get dragged for weeks before we get more quality questions on how to pursue investigation.

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).

When we wanted an enterprise service bus, the AquaLogic Service bus was our first choice and it had very stable features. It was later bought by Oracle and we have used it for several years. SnapLogic and Mule ESB are upcoming and very promising. SnapLogic is completely born in the cloud and seems to be very promising.

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.

  • Integration has always best ROI not only for integration project but for overall business and all systems get connected for good. OSB brings a great value here as OSB is an enterprise-grade integration tool and can be used for company-wide integration & virtualization requirement.
  • OSB also works well with other Oracle tools like Oracle SOA Suite and ODI.
