WSO2 API Manager - the front end API Manager for Management, Monitoring and Monetization of API's
Kommentare: I've trained 100+ people in using the API Manager and it is my favorite of the 4 products from WSO2. IT works with all of the other products from WSO2. (IS as external Keymanager, EI as the mediation engine), BPS as the workflow engine) and Stream Processor (as the traffic manager and / or Analytics Server).
Where shall I start? It is one of the big 4 of WSO2 and a product suited for the frontend management of APIs. You could say it is like a guard that will let people or not, but then of course with API's (but also Soap Services and Websocket services). It is hard to focus on all features (my YENLO WSO2 API Training is 3 days and really is the tip of the iceberg).
It downloads as a monolith and can be used as that but has 5 components : store, publisher, gateway, traffic manager and key manager.
It uses a store concept where users (read: developers) can find, try,rate and subscribe to APIs. The definition of the API's is done in the Publisher where technical details as well as search and explanatory details are filled in. When you invoke an API it is done through the gateway. In essence it is a mini ESB / WSO2 EI since the synapse configurations are basically the same as the Enterprise Integrator. Both of them are SYnapse configs in XML, the difference of course is that the API manager is more extensive.
What is great is the extensible lifecycle of the API Manager. This allows you to extend the lifecycle that an API goes through like created, published and deprecated.
There are so many features that i did not describe. IT would have been a big review if i did.
Like with the ESB, the Synapse / AXIS2 components are 10+ years old. Those need to be replaced so there will probably be a migration process in the future. It does not mean the product doesn't function but the components are end of lif
That is why we see the next version of the API manager (3.0.0) being developed but also the micro gateway now in version 3.0.1 (using ballerina as the language).
Any product has its pros and cons, the API Manager is no different.

Capable to perform - but hides its best in code
Kommentare: WSO2 is not for companies who want quick results from start. You need your organization - not just developers, even directors to get their hands dirty when need comes. It takes time to mature - then you can expect good results.
- Extendable: Given the open source nature, product team gave umpteen hooks for extending the capability of the product. E.g. API Life cycle phases and progression, Custom analytics, Workflow for publishing, and so on.
- Customizable: Not simple UI level customization, ability to add custom connectors, custom mediation logic, and so on
- Flexible: Product platform as such is deployable in multiple format and can be heterogeneous scaled
- Learning curve: Team implementing WSO2 has to go through a harsh, steep learning curve. For a starter - there are no starting place. When compared to competitive products - ApiGee has 4 min videos, Mulesoft has online training course, Boomi has detailed tutorials.
- Documentation: It needs a complete makeover - it does not have a flow, nor its easy to navigate. Samples provided as mere code - needs an explanation
- Community: WSO2 product developers write multiple blogs - that is the only savior. If you are in search of some technical question - google is of little help. You do not have a place to start searching. support.wso2.com needs to have some capability to up itself in google index

A great API Gateway
Kommentare: The open-source API gateway solution from WSO2 is a compact powerhouse that competes with the corporate giants like APIGEE without missing a beat. The Sequence driven API management helps in all aspects of the API life-cycle. The throttling is powerful and can be controlled via automated deployment mechanism. The deployment is simple and straight forward and has multiple options to control the flow of the API and auto recovery features in case of an endpoint suspension. It is a robust product with pretty intuitive development scene.

Excellent product, the mediation components need a little work
Kommentare: Overall my experience has been excellent; the product is fully featured with the capability to handle nearly any outcome. I'm intending on extending it further with a few more interfaces as well to fill out our range.
Vorteile: Basic APIs are fantastic and able to be created in seconds. With a little bit of work it's possible to develop an entire suite to a pattern that is secure and robust. The scalability also is incredible; there has been a huge amount of though put into the solution as a whole to allow a huge TPS load with multiple tenants, all scriptable/API-driven. While I haven't put it truly through its paces, it's difficult to find a use-case it couldn't manage. Additionally being able to deploy WAR files directly has come in extremely useful. I've used this for stubbed functionality that the prototyping component can't cater for and it works incredibly well.
Nachteile: Like with any software this complex, it comes with a learning curve; the tough bit for me was the mediator components, which given how critical they are, felt a little hidden away. These items were also skipped over in the mini tutorial you get presented when creating an API for the first time, so take some digging into the documentation to understand their function and how they click. In saying that, they are extremely powerful; once you learn the nuances of how they fit together, it's insane the capability you're able to perform with them. There are a couple of items that do have some gaps however: - The Eclipse interface while powerful, feels clunky and slow. The drag and drop is great however if a little undocumented within the eclipse interface. If this were instead implemented within the product itself as a HTML5 interface "Gliffy style", it would be a fantastic integrated feature. 95% of the other Eclipse components aren't applicable to the API Manager anyway. - An online catalog of mediators that others have built would be handy, the sampled definitely give a good look and feel, however to take community created components and implement them into your own mediators saves the duplication needed.

Best open source API Gateway
Kommentare: Overall its a great product. We have deployed all of APIs behind a VPN and expose them only thru API gateway. Deploying a all-in-one single instance is easier in a container, but gets tricky when deploying in a distributed clustered environment. Easy to customize the UI if someone is looking for white labeling it.
Vorteile: It offers several features out of the box for an API gateway. From defining an API to publish and use both for internal and external consumption. It has tight integration with Analytics module to give several key metrics of API usage.
Nachteile: Setup is bit tricky. Also publishing the API requires volume mounts and in a cloud deployment it may seem easier but gets real annoying if we have to republish an API. When only one instance is running and it goes down, restarting the gateway requires all APIs to be republished.
