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.

Red Hat JBoss EAP

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

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.

Red Hat JBoss EAP

  • 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

Azure API Management

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

Red Hat JBoss EAP

  • 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.

We are planning to migrate away from Jboss to Tomcat as Jboss has shown not interest in supporting OSGi which is heavily used at our shop

JBoss overall is easy to use. The installation and deployment of applications are quick. Documentations and support are also readily available.

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.

Alternatives Considered

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.

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

Return on Investment

Azure API Management

  • + APIM has made management of various APIs across multiple LOBs easier and provides a common front-end for our 3rd party developers.
  • + APIM as a gateway for our APIs has made things more secure and provided more insight into API usage patterns.
  • - The cost of APIM is high, however with each additional API we add, we get more value.
Gordon Lo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Red Hat JBoss EAP

  • Jboss EAP is easy to deploy and configure. This lead to lower cost and faster delivery.
  • Even though we have large number of machines running JBoss, we have only two Jboss Administrators. It doesn't requires too much administration and maintenance on daily basis and reduces number of administrators required for large implementations.
