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.

Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management)

Well suited for publishing internal services with very high security, protecting against attacks, and managing on-demand load. Also good for transform messages and SQL to Rest services.Not appropriate for business logic implementation.

The Layer7 API Management is a great solution, but, sometimes the documentation is not clear or has lack of examples.

The support team is good and the response time is reasonable, but (there is always a but), when support inquiries are made by someone experienced, and the question is not trivial, it is boring and takes a long time to get the case escalated to the next level of support.

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

Layer7 API Management (formerly CA API Management)

We evaluated 3 tools and decided on Layer7 API Management because it had the shortest implementation times and fastest learning curve, without losing power of customization and scalability.
