Autostub

I can't think of any situation where API development/integration is involved and Autostub is not suitable for the job. Any developer at some point may need to mock the APIs somewhere in the product lifecycle, and having a specialized tool like Autostub make this process so much easier and more maintainable.

Azure API Management

APIM is useful for the standard scenarios:
1) Securing your back-end APIs - If you have a legacy back-end web service that has a basic authentication scheme, you can add some additional security by placing APIM in front, and requiring subscription keys. Leverage your existing firewall to ensure only your APIM instance can communicate with your back-end API, and you've basically added a layer of protection.
2) Lift and shift - there are always going to be clients that don't want to update their clients to use a newer API; in some cases you can make a newer API look like an older one by implementing some complex policies in APIM. You can also do the opposite, making older APIs look new, such as making an XML back-end accept both JSON and XML.
3) Centralizing your APIs - if you've acquired another company and want to make their API set look as if it's a part of the larger whole, APIM is an easy way to provide a consistent front-end interface for developers.

Pros

Autostub

  • Automatically generating stubs for REST and SOAP
  • Managing multiple mock responses for each service if needed
Ahmed Anwar Nasr | TrustRadius Reviewer

Azure API Management

  • Selective data exposure as it exposes a set of data allowed by the owner by applying authentication and usage limits.
  • It will help us to keep all our APIs behind a single static IP and protect them with a set of keys.
  • Integration and deployment of various APIs are so simple to manage by Azure so that makes our work a lot easier.

Cons

Autostub

  • None, the experience was excellent

Azure API Management

  • We cannot automate the network infrastructure easily. At least we had issues with creating end to end APIM using Terraform.

Alternatives Considered

Autostub

The automatic generation of stub services feature exists in SoapUI but only for SOAP APIs. Also, Autostub is much more usable and friendly, supports REST APIs as well as SOAP, and is offered as a SAAS, On-Prem or hybrid deployment whereas SoapUI needs to be run on a server with no cloud option

Azure API Management

It’s a great tool, and so easy to seamlessly connect into your current Azure world that it’s hard not to look at it or even test the waters with it. It’s priced well, and is feature-rich enough to accomplish most tasks. I think the ease of having everything together and the ability to link so many different services under a subscription is the magic of Azure, and it’s hard not to make good use of that.
