Quick integration of enterprise systems, legacy applications and thick client applications. Easy maintenance of APIs.

Pros
Quick development APIs using the API Manager and Anypoint studio, also quick configuration tools are provided by Mulesoft.

Cons
API Manager should be able to provide automatic customization of alerts. Undeployment of APIs and Mule ESB services are taking more time in MMC.

An End to End API Platform

The API market is experiencing an exceptional growth over the last few year with a lot of customers jumping onboard. When it comes to choosing an API platform, as with an other product, there are lot of options with all major vendors offering something unique. For me the most important feature that distinguishes Anypoint Platform from the crowd is that it covers the full life cycle from the desing to the deployment and ultimately the management of APIs. Rich support for the standards like RAML helps designer start prototyping the APIs without worrying about the implementation. Eclipse based studio is a powerful tool for the developers to write integration flows, the rich library of connectors help them complete the API implementation much faster than a traditional development model. Finally with cloudhub the deployment and management of APIs are simpler and easier than ever.

An easy, fast and solid way to develop and deploy your solutions

For me it is a good technology which is easy to learn by anybody who has some experience on development (independent of language) and easy to develop using Anypoint platform and Anypoint studio - the IDE we use to develop and deploy from our desktop. And also Dataweave is very rich and solid expression language users can use to easily transform data into desired output.

Pros
It has rich GUI to design/develop and deploy your apps and APIs easily. And Testing and getting feedback on design time is much more important as developers to make sure that the product we are going to develop fulfils the end users' requirement and also helps to reduce the number of testing cycle, hence will help a lot for Rapid Application Development.

Cons
It is still evolving and changing fast and sometimes some parts of our solutions has to change frequently. But this does not happen for most of the parts.

Ease of use, build applications faster and deploy them faster. Allows you to connect anything ranging from databases to files to social media apps. Mule anypoint platform is your instant choice to build IoT applications.

Cons
I would have liked mulesoft to introduce more connectors that can integrate with wide variety of AWS services. AWS service offerings are huge, I am sure we will have more connectors that will help integrating with most AWS services from Mulesoft studio.

In my case, This is a new technology at the beginning all the process looks little complex but once you try to use the tools and of course do a walk through all the things looks less complicated. This complete tool has a lot of potential and I think that will be establishing a new way to build, share, develop, systems in the whole meaning.

Pros
Easy to use, intuitive, with a lot of potencial.

There is not a way public to do more exercises before begin to implement it in the job.

It's an awesome experience developing APIs using Anypoint Studio. Few points: - Quick learning curve, Java based - Light Weight, Performant, Ubiquitous. - A lot of out of the box components and connectors. - Data mapper is good. - Easier File handling, batch processing, polling etc. - Great flexibility for transformation. - Great blog and Management center. - Successfully used it in my commercial projects. - Focus more on what an API must do rather than its management and lifecycle. - Maintenable, Easily upgradable - Great support. The MuleSoft Developers are very friendly and go out of the way in resolving your issues. - Logging, Auditing, Monitoring - Waiting to work on Data Weave - Waiting to work on Java 8 version in the next version of the platform - Internal design of the framework is decent and takes multiple architectural challenges into consideration

Review Source: Capterra

I reviewed products from various vendors in this space such as Talend, WSO2 and JBOSS fuse. By far, MuleSoft was the easiest to use. Some vendors claim to have over 800 connectors but when you compare it with the AnyPoint connectors, you'll quickly realize that it takes many connectors to achieve the same functionality that Mule has in a single connector. The free training MuleSoft provides in Mule University allows you to quickly learn everythng you need to start integrating immediately. The user interface of the AnyPoint Platform is very intuitive, allowing a notice user with limited technical background to make sense of data flows at a quick glance. The only complicated aspect of the AnyPoint Platform is the Mule Expression Language, but the built-in type-ahead feature allows you to overcome many of the obstacles of learning this very powerful language.

Pros
If you don’t have an engineering team, this is the way to go on doing ETL. It’s a little bit of the learning curve in the beginning but I think it’s worthwhile.

Cons
It’s so expensive but I guess you’re paying for the ease of use from the product.

Mulesoft provides a API-led approach for integrating applications via Anypoint Platform. Anypoint Platform provides competitive edge to businesses and helps them stays ahead of their competitors. With an API-led approach, integrating new modules became easy and less time consuming because of the re-use of existing components. It also provides many OoTB features like ready-made connectors and Cloud deployment and monitoring.

Pros
Easy to integrate with any other application as it is based on open-source technologies.

Cons
MMC Monitoring is bit complex.

Easy Deployment of distributed architecture.

Pros
A long list of connectors. Designing distributed applications architecture is a cake walk with MULE platform. Amazing thought and effort put behind by the MULE team. hats off to them.

Cons
This probably could not be a con as I'm still learning and going through the materials. But one this is that there should be a leniency shown for developer accounts like 180 days of free account instead just 30 days trial.

Drag and Drop and Console flexibility. One palette option is there in the anypoint studio. You can easily drag and drop Connectors, Transformer, Filter, Exception Handler, Scopes. Some extra features are there in the console like Stop, Clear Console, Word Wrap, Scroll Lock etc.

Cons
Error/Exception Screen. Everything is good for error/exception but I think the screen should be more clear to find the error.

One can try it

Pros
The ease of getting basic flow's up and running and how quickly you can get solutions to integration requirements solved. Anypoint platform, Exchange, Cloud Hub and the online collaboration components are all fantastic additions to the solution. Very easy for development because of the drag and drop interface, with many connectors ready to go with simple configuration and settings to get a quick connection to a system and also understand, with a lot of documentation available for the same online.

Cons
It behaves weird at times. A full understanding of the tool is not an easy job as you have so many functionalities embedded Anypoint Studio is Eclipse based: on some old machine and operating system (linux distros) this could be a pain.

Developing with MuleSoft has felt easy and documentations are good. Even though I am quite new with Mule I find it accessible. MuleSoft is offering free e-courses for developers and after the course you may do certificate exam for free. I think it is nice way to enhance your knowledge and get some kind of proof of your competencies.

Pros
Good documentations and free educational material available.

Cons
Lot of new features that you are excited about just to realize your mule version does not support them :(

Hi We have started using Mule recently and loved it for simplicity and ease of getting things done. The drag and drop functionality in Mule helps a lot and there is a XML counterpart to it for those who like to code. To achieve same thing in Java requires lot of coding and Mule helps with it very well. It supports deployment of APIs on premise and on cloud. It has RAML which allows designing and developing RESTful web services and deployment also.

Pros
Ease of doing things, features provided for integrating many applications, APIs and cloud support.

Cons
Not much material available online to get help on the issues in Mule

Logging for some reason I don't like much. Log viewer always word wraps the log. However it might be very useful if we get toggle for switching word wrap or single line view of the log. When new logs are coming the scroll should not move. It is not good esp. when I am reading the logs.
