Pros

Pros

It implements a fantastic and simple user interface to help you in the process. His knowledge base and his blog with the examples that you can find in these are really fantastic.
I had very good experience while i was working with mulesoft. The best thing i like in mulesoft is to ease of use.
As I was implementing for a client, time to implement and getting a system up and running w/o issues and cost were major issues. This product succeeded, and the client is quite pleased.

Cons

Cons

Based of the Eclipse Platform it seems to have inherited the same basic problems. Memory leaks, weird port binding problems, and slow debugging performance.
It has too many connectors so easy to connect all. But the errors are some where difficult to find where exactly make a mistake.
I think one of the worst points of this platform is the user friendlyness. Maybe I'm not a pro, but it was difficult for me to understand how to use it at first.

Anypoint Platform

AnypointStudio is good for quick development of integrating other systems and RESTful services.

Reviewed 4 years ago

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.

MuleSoft Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall, I am happy with Mule ESB which does the job of required integration either in SOAP or REST

Pros

DataWeave component makes complex transformation into simpler which reduces lot of effots on comples business logic and business orchestration. RAML provides good contract definition which can be used for developing the REST web services . It is very light weight compare to other leading ESB provider(Oracle ESB,Talend ESB..) It gives lot of adapter/Connector which we can make use for integration (Eg, Salesforce) We can also use Java expression which is known to many developers for few things.

Cons

We have to use explicit audit/logging, unlike oracle SOA which gives out of box auditing. Most of the cloud adapters/Connectors are licensed.

Awesome

Reviewed 5 years ago

I have been working on Anypoint Studio for the past 2 years. I have seen drastic changes in 3.7 when compared to 3.3(version in which i have started my journey with Mule ESB). One important thing I wanna share is like DATAWEAVE. Its really awesome in performance wise. In 3.7 it is very easy for developers to complete the code in less time with no bugs... :)

I have now completed the MCD - Integration and API associate online course, which was a good starting point to learn how to use some of the key Mule ESB features. One of the benefits of using Mule ESB is that it is a very lightweight and extensible solution that apart from being a free open source version, it also provide a commercial enterprise version which offers additional functionality and support...

My experience with Anypoint platform

Reviewed 5 years ago

It is very nice ESB to use. Very easy to use. My favorite part in the Mule ESB is the documentation. The documentation is very clear with examples. You need to not spend time to search for good tutorials and blogs to learn Mule, all you need to do us sit back relax and go through the documentation. And the connectors are awesome. What ever you want to connect to, there is a connector in Mule.

Mule is very easy to use and implement, needs to improve on its documentation and blogs for beginner

Reviewed 5 years ago

I believe MULE ESB is a product which is really going to be at par with any other Middleware product. The solutions are easy to implement, and testing it is fun as the application servers for run as application is same on the IDE where we do development. It provides superb connectivity to the API's, ease of transportation of messages and routing makes it so great to use. The thing that it should improve is the documentation and beginners to advanced guided tutorials so that more and more developers delve into this making it super huge success.!!!!!!!!!!!!

Extending our capabilities using MuleSoft

Reviewed 5 years ago

Clear vision and milestone make us prepared during our project development. We have been working in multiple Enterprise Integration projects using Mule ESB 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, and now 3.7. Not much effort required to upgrade from older version to the new one (only minor action required to replace all --> scatter-gather, log4j --> log4j2, etc.). The ability adapt to change and rapidly get to market, promote new services. Our legacy system now able to connect to any system, extending its capabilities. Open new opportunity to win the competition. Any issue and update are fully supported, whether during pre-sales or in project life cycle. Training material, documentation, direct support motivate us to offer our best services to client.
