Oracle API Manager

Oracle API Manager is well suited in a business or company that make use of Apis to facilitate access of backend services and data sources by the staff or customers or both. It is also imported in situations where all actions in a system need to be attributed to specific users.

StopLight

API mocking, testing, and sharing are all built in functions for StopLight that work quite well. They even have functionality for generating OAI and RAML code as well, which is a huge plus. AS for as areas where StopLight is not appropriate, if you're doing anything other than API testing, StopLight may not be appropriate for use.

Pros

Oracle API Manager

  • API Manager allows for REST and SOAP API's to be easily created and tracked
  • API Manager allows for only certain people/applications to use the API (does this thru a subscriber service it provides)
  • It also publishes the API's it is tracking so developers can easily know what interfaces already exist.
  • The monitoring ability is a nice feature. The admin person can easily see how and where the APIs are currently being used

StopLight

  • OAI code. StopLight is a great tool to use if you use Swagger for testing your endpoints.
  • Sharing API's. StopLight makes it easy for us to share our API's internally with other teams.
  • Tech support. StopLight's dev team responds quickly and helpfully to tech questions and there's plenty of forum support to boot.

Cons

Oracle API Manager

  • Absence of Role-Based Access. A finer grain control on what type of users can call certain API Endpoints is needed.
  • Performance with third-party databases isn't as fast as using Oracle Database.
  • Long learning curve. Although Oracle API Manager provides performance and a vast deal of features, a certain level of expertise is required to effectively make use of them.

StopLight

  • Simplicity of set up. Although it's not difficult, there are tools out there that are easier to set up for testing endpoints.
  • Again, it's perfectly functional, but some competitors I think have a more user friendly UI to them.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle API Manager

Oracle API Manager works well for our team since a majority of the products we use are Oracle based. Our backend jobs and servers all run with PL/SQL and Oracle databases. This makes the Oracle API Manager tool the best suited for our needs as a department. Anypoint API Manager may be more suited for teams with a Salesforce based infrastructure

StopLight

I'd like to also throw Runscope and Fiddler into the mix. Between StopLight and all these competitors, we've chosen StopLight primarily for the support, ease of use, and reliability. Most tools out there today are top-notch, so it really comes down to personal preference and different use-cases. Having used other API testing frameworks, StopLight definitely stacks up against the competition.

Return on Investment

Oracle API Manager

  • Oracle API Manager supports both REST & SOAP API's.
  • Secure and attributable connection to back-end services and data sources. In addition to creating API's for querying data, you can also create API endpoints that can manipulate the data in the back-end databases.
  • Although Oracle API Manager provides performance and a vast deal of features, to start with it is really important you train your people working on development, deployment and administrators to effectively use Oracle API Manager.
