Our team has a vast experience with different tools available on the market. It makes Traffic Parrot stand out form the other commercial offerings and work well in microservice-like architectures developed by decentralized, autonomous or cross-functional teams.
Designed for autonomous, decentralized, cross-functional or product teams. It will allow you to avoid a centralized admin team that could be a bottleneck for the teams when creating API mocks and virtual services.
One simple but powerful component with a small footprint (less than 50MB of disk space) allowing you for more flexibility. Can be run on your Laptop/Desktop, CI server, Docker/Kubernetes, Cloud or VM.
A licensing model and cost plan that fits Continuous Integration and DevOps practices.
HTTP(S), JMS/MQ, File Transfers, gRPC and other protocols
Both test and development teams
Different ways of creating virtual services like manual request/response import and record and playback.
There are many service virtualization tools available either as open source distributions, commercially available off-the-shelf software (COTS), or SaaS offerings. Our customers find it as difficult to attract and retain development talent as any firm operating in today's competitive environment and choose to pay for Traffic Parrot to get guaranteed support and avoid spending internal development time and energy on what would essentially be re-inventing the wheel. They focus their talents on additions to their core offering that increase the value to their end customers.

Wiremock is a great tool, we recommend it on many occasions.
One tool that fits many protocols. Traffic Parrot supports not only HTTP(s) but also asynchronous messaging with JMS and IBM® Websphere MQ, File transfers and gRPC
Unlike Wiremock, Traffic Parrot can act as a man in the middle HTTPS Proxy. More
Designed for manual exploratory testing, automated performance testing and functional testing of large and legacy systems More
Have many additional extensions available as well things like Passthrough Mode, Recording filtering by content type, and many more.
No more testers left behind! More
Traffic Parrot is designed for both testers and developers.
Majority of open source service virtualization software (like Wiremock) is written by developers for developers. It is great for developers, but testers get left behind. The way we are different to most open source is that our tool is designed with both developers and testers in mind. We have programmable APIs for developers and an intuitive user interface for testers to use. We provide first class support to both testers and developers. We value collaboration and make sharing virtual services between developers and testers easy, which can be costly to implement just with open source.
Often developers are implementing the new best practices and using the cutting edge technology, following the latest trends. Then, often testers get left behind, and have to keep up with developers. Our tool helps to facilitate the communication between development and testing. Find out more in the Continuous Delivery team video.
How long can you wait for a bug fix? In open source projects fixing issues might last weeks, months or years. More
We aim to fix them in a few days to a week. Even if you fix an issue in an open source project codebase yourself and create a pull request, it might take a few weeks to a few months before the new version is released. We aim to release new versions in a few days to a week.

Charles Proxy is a great tool. There are significant differences between Traffic Parrot and Charles Proxy, though.
Traffic Parrot supports multiple protocols, not only HTTP(s) but also JMS and IBM® Websphere MQ, File transfers and gRPC
Traffic Parrot is scriptable and programmable. It is a complete service virtualization and API mocking platform with many extensions available.
Traffic Parrot can be run anywhere. On your laptop, on a server, in docker, on a Jenkins/Bamboo/CircleCi/TeamCity agent and on AWS. You can run Traffic Parrot on a server using command line (headless). The GUI is accessed via a web browser.
Our tool is designed for manual exploratory testing, automated performance testing and functional testing of large and legacy systems. Its not only a HTTP Proxy aimed at debugging.
Mockito is a great tool, even we use it internally at Traffic Parrot for in-process mocks. It might not be possible to use Mockito in some situations though.
Black-box application/microservice testing (both functional and performance)
You need a graphical user interface, like a Web UI
You have too many APIs and endpoints to mock to start with and need to do a record/replay to manage the complexity short term
You want to use the same tool and testing approach for developers and testers
Provide external development and testing teams with stubs of your systems
Simulating protocol and network errors/failures
REST, JMS and MQ APIs that require visibility on protocol level, not in Mocktio mocks only
Logging communication sequence diagrams in acceptance tests
