    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.

    JBoss EAP is subscription based/open source platform. It's very reliable and great for deploying high transaction Java based enterprise applications. It integrates well with third party components like mod_cluster and supports popular Java EE web-based frameworks such as Spring, Angular JS, jQuery Mobile, and Google Web Toolkit.

    Pros

    Microsoft

    • Easy commissioning of APIs.
    • Great policies to control access.
    • Easy mock services for testing.

    • MOD_CLUSTER integration. JBoss EAP integrates pretty well with mod_cluster. This is an intelligent load balancer especially useful in highly clustered environments.
    • Supports enterprise-grade features such as high availability clustering, distributed caching, messaging etc.
    • Supports deployment in on-premise, virtual and hybrid cloud environments.

    Cons

    Microsoft

    • Lack of robustness is a bit of an issue. Several other providers offer more options and capabilities, but then, they are lacking in interface ease.
    • As with anything Azure, pricing is really hard to stay on top of. I always find that you really don’t know what you’re paying for until you get the bill. Having an excellent Azure Administrator can help resolve that.
    • Integrating with app services outside of Azure can be a challenge, or at least much more challenging than just using Azure App Services.

    • Jboss CLI is a great tool but we had trouble using it to get values that are displayed on Jboss GUI. It also has limitations parsing the applications.xml files and we had to use a mix of jboss-cli and linux bash commands to automate certain application administrative tasks.
    • JBoss doesn't really provides performance tuning recommendations. It would have been nice if it could learn from the current demand vs current settings for things like connection pool, server configurations, garbage collection etc.

      Usually, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is good at performance and well suited for high traffic Java EE-based applications, but we have faced hard times performance tuning it for our specific needs. The product would be nicer if they would add a performance diagnostic and recommendations feature to it.

      Azure APIM vs Amazon API Gateway:
      1) Azure APIM was a complete package that included a developer portal.
      2) We are very Microsoft centric - so the Microsoft product suite aligned very well with our business needs.
      3) It was faster and easier to stand up Azure APIM for testing than it was for the Amazon API Gateway.

      We selected JBoss because of compatibility with EJB's. We currently are trying to reduce our footprint and will highly consider using Tomcat.

      • Improved delivery timelines due to easy out of the box setup.
      • It is a cheap subscription-based/open-source Java EE-based application server. This reduces the overall cost of delivery.
