Runscope vs Restlet: What are the differences?

Developers describe Runscope as "API Performance Monitoring". Keep tabs on all aspects of your API's performance with uptime monitoring, integration testing, logging and real-time monitoring. On the other hand, Restlet is detailed as "Provides tools for developers to design, create, run and manage APIs". It is an open source REST framework for the Java platform. It is suitable for both server and client Web applications. It supports major Internet transport, data format, and service description standards like HTTP and HTTPS, SMTP, XML, JSON, Atom, and WADL.

Runscope and Restlet can be primarily classified as "API" tools.

Some of the features offered by Runscope are:

  • Runscope Radar: Automatically monitor your APIs from around the globe. Integrates with PagerDuty, New Relic Insights, Keen IO, HipChat, Slack and more. Test complete API workflows with powerful assertions and notifications.

    What are some alternatives to Restlet and Runscope?
    Postman
    It is the only complete API development environment, used by nearly five million developers and more than 100,000 companies worldwide.
    Jersey
    It is open source, production quality, framework for developing RESTful Web Services in Java that provides support for JAX-RS APIs and serves as a JAX-RS (JSR 311 & JSR 339) Reference Implementation. It provides it’s own API that extend the JAX-RS toolkit with additional features and utilities to further simplify RESTful service and client development.
    Apache CXF
    It helps you build and develop services using frontend programming APIs, like JAX-WS and JAX-RS. These services can speak a variety of protocols such as SOAP, XML/HTTP, RESTful HTTP, or CORBA and work over a variety of transports such as HTTP, JMS or JBI.
    Spring Boot
    Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". We take an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need very little Spring configuration.
    Spring
    A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.
