Likelihood to Recommend

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.

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

If you need a robust, extensible, reliable Enterprise Service Bus, with "Enterprise" being the key word here, TIBCO [Enterprise Message Service] will be able to fulfill every expectation.As proof of concept, or ad-hoc implementations, it might not be as well suited due to the infrastructure required.

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.

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

  • Tibco EMS performs very well, and it meets our stringent performance requirements for corporate messaging backbone.
  • Tibco EMS scales well, and this is another of our stringent requirements.
  • Tibco provides good support for the EMS product, and continues to improve it. This is important as we don't want to use something that does not keep up with the changes in the technology landscape.

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

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

  • A bit of lag time between data sync and the data reaching the server for some of our field sites.
  • It still seems like a niche product for me with little community support. I didn't know about it before working for a company that deployed it.
  • Certain functionality is too complex to setup as compared to other products on the market.

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.

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service acts as a barebone service in our environment. Some applications use TIBCO Rendezvous, some EMS. In this way it was possible to evaluate the differences and I saw that EMS was more robust and open to different programming languages. In particular the integration with java was a good point.

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.

TIBCO Enterprise Message Service

  • It promotes the event-driven a-synchronized architecture, boosting the service-oriented design change by decoupling the data generator and the data consumer.
  • Applications can be easily "attached" to the data flow to quickly roll out the business added values without having to risk the changes of existing applications or components.
