Pros: Data Mapping is the feature i like most in this software, there are many feature which are as follow are the best for my project.

Debugging suppor,APIkit

RAML Support

Cons: RAML Support,

we can import RAML files for your APIs that are managed in the Anypoint Platform by the API Manager and keep them in sync with the platform.While working with a RAML file, you can also view an embedded interactive API Console that's automatically built from the resources and methods described in your RAML.Handle complex data mappings and transformations through the Transform Message component, that leverages the powerful DataWeave language. This component allows you to create your transformations both through a simple drag and drop visual interface or by coding in DataWeave to unleash all of the language's potential.

Overall: Few Advantages that Mule has over other products are :-

Mule has a large collection of different connectors to connect and integrate diverse systems. It is said like it can almost connect anything.

Mule is very lightweight and easy to use compared to other esb. Since it is mostly Java based, so, it becomes very easy to use and build custom components. Most important is that, Mule is a pure esb, where other products comes with other functionality and platforms and esb is one of the part of the product. (eg WSO2)

Mule is graphically based unlike most of other esb, where the flows are mostly configured in XML (Apache Camel or Spring integration)

Mule is less expensive compared to most of other products. Even community versions are available, which will not cost you anything.

Mule earlier had a problem of its small size of its community. But nowadays, Mule community is expanding like others.

Mule, as I mentioned is easy to use. for example, if you want to expose a web service and need to do various transformations with payload, you just need to concentrate on your java implementation classes or you Mule flow. Mule will take care of exposing the service to an endpoint and you don't need to write any code for that.

It also has wide range of transformer that will take care of transformation of your payload and also other functionality like orchestration, routing etc and will be easy for you to implement

There are more or less other advantages, you can explore more to get it .

More or less choosing an esb depends on your requirement and budget.

I would like to give my review on Anypoint Platform.

Pros: There are many things to like about Anypoint Platform. Few of them I would like to highlight:

1. Integration Platform: Anypoint Platform is a hybrid integration platform provided by MuleSoft which is used to build application network very easily, structurally and smartly with proper documentation.

2. API-Led Connectivity: Anypoint Platform implements API-Led Connectivity approach to make application network Reusable, Loosely Coupled and more Govern.

3. Layered Architecture: Anypoint Platform follows Layered architecture style in the integration based project in which for each external system we create an API on top of it to expose their data. This API is called as System API and this API is not used normally by any user directly.

Then if required, to merge the two or more than two external system together, we again need to create an API on top of them to expose their data together. This API is called as Process API which is more process-oriented. And then finally we come up with Experienced API on top of Process API to expose process-oriented data so that the end user could get the data from different external systems. So you can see how Anypoint Platform smartly uses Layered architecture style to build out network applications eaisly.

4. CloudHub: This is perhaps the most relevant benefits of Anypoint Platform according to me. Anypoint Platform provides various ways to deploy your integration applications and APIs both on Cloud computing environment and on premises

Overall: There are various of benefits of Anypoint Platform to use in Integrataion project.

1. Integration Platform: Anypoint Platform is a hybrid integration platform provided by MuleSoft which is used to build application network very easily, structurally and smartly with proper and neat documentation.

2. API-Led Connectivity: Anypoint Platform implements API-Led Connectivity approach to make application network Reusable, Loosely Coupled and more Govern.

Pros: - Intuitive user interface. It's extremely easy to locate API information and consume analytic information.

- Easy to do create new APIs via RAML.

- Fast and easy deployments and updates.

- Wide range of connectors.

Cons: - Customer support can be a bit slow and hard to reach.

- Developer Portals for APIs do not allow for much customization.

- If you manage a lot of APIs, it is hard to keep track and administer APIs since tables do not let you sort using API request date and other variables.

Overall: While the Anypoint Platform is a newcomer to API management tools, it still manages to be feature rich and offers a great deal of resources for both API development and deployment needs. As an ESB, it offers a plethora of connectors for making our various enteprise systems work with each other while exerting minimal effort to do so. The interface is extremely user friendly as both a developer, administrator and consumer of APIs.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's a great platform but new so MuleSoft Anypoint may not fit all of your needs. However, they are rapidly adding new features and open to working with you to make the platform fit your needs so be open to it as a platform since it is constantly changing and improving for the better.

Pros: -Connector Development Kit

Cons: -Fewer features in connectors but not source stopper

Overall: EAIESB is middleware Expertise Company. We have started with SeeBeyond, SRE, ICAN, Java CAPS 5, Oracle Fusion 10G, 11G and 12C, TIBCO 5.X and TIBCO 6.X.

We have considered Mulesoft as an open Source tool (after diminishing of OPEN ESB / Glassfish ESB).

In 2014 /15 we have chosen Mulesoft as our middleware tool in building Smart Cities project (Integration, IOT & Big Data). Considering the cost and features. We could deliver the POC and could not win the project.

Later in 2016, again we started looking into as various customers are looking for migrating existing environment to new product (simple migration (export and import) vs Re-Write) customers started asking for migration path for Mulesoft also.

Mulesoft latest features (API, Microservices, IOT) tools supported in building components helped us to add Mulesoft into our portfolio.

Having experience in migrating code from various technologies we have built best practices in migrating to Mule.

Best benefit we have seen in mule is the ease of building the custom connector for the use cases while migration.

When mapping with other technologies, we see more connectors in mule, but connectors have less features, but it does not limit /stopping migration.

We are happy to talk to the team and provide specific connectors we have built and use cases which demanded us to build them and contribute to the community.

Pros: USP is Connectors and how rapidly the flows can be built. I am an admirer of Mule Runtime and the time it takes to start, deploy applications and the number of transactions it can handle with minimum hardware configurations.

Cons: Anypoint Studio - There are so many bugs when TransformMessage is used with big XMLs and JSON schemas.

Anypoint Runtime Manager: It is very inconsistent in managing the run time without any issues.

RAML Editor: It has to improve while showing errors.

Flow Analyzer: It is needed in ARM which is available in MMC.

Autodiscovering APIs: It is very inconsistent and has to improve

MuleSoft need to support Swagger along with RAML to have more options to the developers.

Pros: Easy to learn

Highly flexible

Focused on not only improving technology but being a disruptor in the technology field

Cons: Is rather expensive

Could use better database integration tools

The IDE tends to be sluggish

Overall: Mule is by far the easiest ESB I have been exposed to. I have reviewed several others and all of them are very code oriented requiring a rather steep learning curve just to deploying your first project. With Mule and the drag-n-drop Anypoint Studio deploying your first project is very simple. Performing transformations also is very simply with the DataWeave component. This component is very flexible. Its use can be as simple as dragging one field from the input to the desired location in the output. Or it can be complex allowing you to develop functions to retrieve other data, manipulate the provided data or create new data.

All in all AnyPlatform is a excellent ESB.

Pros: Anypoint Platform has a Wide range of enterprise connectors are key to its integration success.

Cons: Frequent upgrades and releases though I think it's required to make the product more powerful but sometimes its difficult for customers to plan upgrades.

Overall: Anypoint Platform has a Wide range of enterprise connectors are key to its integration success.

Having a rookie on the job for integrating an application? Well it does not matter. It is a very easy tool to get started with and with wide range of documentations and example it is very easy for someone to start integrating applications in no time.

Are you from Java background or Dot Net? It does not matter. You can easily learn and integrate applications using Anypoint Plateform.

One tool for complete integration solutions having GUI based interface and focusing on configuration over coding making developers life easy and delightful.

Recommendations to other buyers: Calculate your specific business needs. If you find yourself in a position requiring move data from different sources to different databases, give Mulesoft Anypoint Studio a very serious look.

Pros: - Starts up quick.

- Vm queue

- Eclipse based IDE

- Easily extendable

- Simplest SDK every seen

- Ability to use Hybrid environment

Cons: - Minor data mapping change required a development cycle.

- Log cluttering

- To many release, and non backward compatible changes

Overall: Server startup is really quicker than all other integration tools i have experienced. VM queue is awesome feature enabling messaging without a server in between. Object store and Cache is also an excellent concept. I would like to avoid cluttering the code with all the logs we had to add in the code in order to trace a message flow.

Recommendations to other buyers: - API manager to enforce policies on Web page address. So that API manager can be one stop shop for security - One portal per API is very limiting, it would be nice to have a rolodex of all APIs - Better code migration to a new runtime environment.

it is great , with the help of anypoint platform we can do restful services and more.

Pros: Anypoint Exchange consists of a MuleSoft provided public list of APIs, examples, connectors, and templates that you can use to create applications.

API Manager is a component of Anypoint Platform for managing and publishing APIs.

If you set up your own account on the internet, you are assigned the Organization Administrators role. If your organization uses Anypoint Platform on a private cloud, obtain permissions and roles from the Anypoint Platform administrator for your organization. In the Organization Administrator role, you see and can open API Manager when you log into Anypoint Platform. As Organization Administrator, you can see and manage client applications registered to access your API. Alternatively, you can use the Anypoint Platform command line interface (CLI) to interact with API Manager.

Cons: API Manager,Anypoint Exchange

You can deploy an API implementation to a Mule Runtime that runs on a server, such as CloudHub in the public cloud. You can also deploy to a private cloud or hybrid. A hybrid deployment is an API deployed on a private server but having metadata processed in the public cloud. Regardless of the server location, each server belongs to an environment, such as Design, Test, or Production. Servers are defined in business groups and each business group can have multiple environments.

Overall: we can create rest services . we can host the services on premises and cloud. these micro service will help the application to run fast .

Pros: Ease of use, intuitive user interface, no need to install any database to run the software, download the software and you're ready to go, large number of out of box connectors adapters to connect variety of systems, very easy to implement enterprise integration patterns

Cons: Sometimes error messages are cryptic and need basic knowledge of Java Spring to sort them out.

Overall: After working on Microsoft's BizTalk Server for over a decade, I stumbled upon MuleSoft and decided to give it a shot. I was so impressed by this integration platform that I've been suggesting my clients to switch to MuleSoft.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would advise any and all integration professional to try this software atleast once. I'm sure you'll be highly impressed by how easy it is to use.

Pros: The ESB is the centerpiece of our learning ecosystem. While not having a front end interface and requiring programming (API work), it's been a tremendous efficiency tool for us. If only we used it better!

Cons: It's pretty pricey and the service around it is also costly as that is the main upcharge for businesses who don't have a lot of programmers, etc.

Overall: This was the reason we could do what we did with real AI, machine learning, and hyper connected api's.

Pros: easily develop business flow and reuse with many system. it does not force any design constraints on the architect to deliver any message. its work on highly distributed environment.

Cons: created more thread over the application.

As per my experience, the performance of the application is not as much good.

Overall: Mule is one of the tool and platform for java people to upgrade into technical skill. It is easy to use and easy to work in any business workflow. This software is a lightweight Java-based enterprise service bus and integration platform that allows developers to connect applications together quickly and easily, enabling them to exchange data.

Mule allow user to connect more service in minimum time. We can easy customize any component base on requirement. We can easy used or create SOAP and Rest services. Mule is one platform which support RAML for restful services.

Pros: Error-handle processing, deep code programming (directly on the XML), Python, Java and other code separated into the transformations, complete IU for developing, connection with versioning solutions

Cons: Prcesses monitoring, task schedule

Overall: When we started to develop in MuleSoft, we need change our vision about the integration processes oriented to Web Services. You need to use other concepts and best practices, but they offer a great information about it in his blog.

MuleSoft is a great application like ESB (on-premise and CloudHub). When you have experience with it, develop is fast, controlled and easy.

A great characteristic of it, is the big amount of free connectors that it offers. You can connect with a great number of Internet service providers (through APIs).

The UI in the first steps could be complex, but, for this reason, is a great UI that has controlled all aspects of the development.

Pros: Ease of use, easy to learn, quality and range of out of the box connectors, overall completeness of the solution.

Cons: Sometimes the Anypoint Studio IDE can be frustrating and it does have some bugs - although these are usually very quick to be resolved once reported.

Overall: I've been leading the uptake and implementation of the Anypoint Platform for a Government department and it has proven time and time again to be the correct technology choice. Integrating existing systems (including GeoSpatial systems, SAP, Microsoft Dynamics CRM and the like), providing new and more efficient methods with which data and users can be introduced through effective API design and providing the capability to expose these systems to the outside world with a hybrid-cloud approach - all with negligible impact on day to day business and without the need for a huge team and the complexities of many other players in this space.

Anypoint platform is centralized manager for everything. I loved the way it simply organized all.

Pros: Simple, centralized, end to end web platform. Runtime manager, insights, logs, alerts, policies at single place. Only Flow designer is missing. Although it is included in latest version 4.0, should have come before.

Cons: Anypoint designer had some issues with IE, Mozilla. Runtime manager hangs. Reporting of flow analytics should be more in depth. API designer doesn't provide all the features of comparitive tools like swagger. Public portal design should have been more options oriented.

Overall: I was able to create RESTful services easily/fast-paced.

Able to convert existing xml/json formatted data to desired formats quickly without any issues. Fast, proactive, easy interface. But lacks in scalability. Could not implement robust service. Process archestration is difficult when requirement becomes difficult.

It is a very good tool to build, test and deploy flows to cloud hub

Pros: The freedom and options to connect any system / component using the Anypoint Platform. Can connect flat files and expose them as a Web Service! The system doing a "GET" using web service will never know what kind of language / platform they're dealing with. It's a consistent look and feel of REST and SOAP.

Cons: Design tools are in Eclipse and require a slight learning curve if you are new to the environment. Because portions of the product are open sourced, updates require careful regression testing.

Pros: So many Connectors available already in the tool and also there is a scope for new connectors as it is a open source. This gives freedom to the developer to use them conveniently.

Overall: I have been using Mulesoft ESB for our Integration needs in the enterprise.

Anypoint Studio is fabulous, it has so many connectors that helps your requirements to complete in time and with ease.

you have variety of components for each use case and also u get a great support from the developer forums and mulesoft dedicated support.

Mulesoft site has so much documentation about the feature and components available, they give you a clear idea of how to use effectively.

I recommend this as your one stop solution for all your integration needs, it also has various other features like EDI.

Pros: A lot of out-of-the-box content

Cons: Support is not that great.

Overall: Using Anypoint Studio in my day-to-day work for integrations, I've found that Anypoint studio makes creating simple integrations very easy to do. However, once we get into more complicated integrations, Anypoint starts to get a little less usable with just the out-of-the-box features. At least they make it fairly simple to add custom processes.

It offers a wide range of connectors which makes our job of connecting to external applications easier.It supports coding in Java which is a pro for many developers.I have integrated with different applications in different formats and deploying the application is also easier.

Pros: Paradigm shift. API led connectivity vs. monolithic solution. Network of APIs is the way to go, and with right design approach you can have APIs which you never have to change.

Cons: documentation some time is harder to find, compare to MicroSoft technologies where there are tons of examples and sample code, it is sometime hard to get your specific question answered.

Overall: This is great upgrade to SOA approach, implemented as it is envisioned i.e. API led conectivity is the wave of future.

I have been using Mulesoft for last couple of years. It has solved my integration needs.

Comments: I have used the Anypoint Platform to create a Multi Protocol Messaging Platform (using SMPP and SMTP). Harnessing the capability to design, run and deploy all in one platform, I have shortened my development timeline (and probably my headache) from an estimated two years to almost 6 months.

The pros:

* Flexible - In terms of what solutions you can do, from Automating event-driven services to

orchestrating various exposed APIs.

* Well Adapted by the Community - There are lots and lots of tutorials that will let you in on the "How-to's", ranging from videos, blog posts, forums and knowledge sharing sites (im looking at you, stackoverflow)

*Very Powerful - Even using the base building blocks/components of the Anypoint Platform you can certainly do a lot, Simple Automatation, Complex chaining of API calls (and gather them back as one neat result) Capture and Filtering reports, Gather and Analysing data from logs..most especially given the rise of the IoT or Internet of Things. You can even build your own custom components to leverage the capability of the platform.

The cons:

* Steep Learning Curve - Coming from a web development background, it has a lot of settings that may or may not break your application. It will take practice before you can successfully say that you have an optimum working application. But this gripe comes from a 7 year PHP based developer with little to none experience in developing applications using Java. :)

Pros: I feel Anypoint is a smart tool. Like in other integration tools we need to specify each and every thing manually where as in this based on the location we are placing a palette, it automatically pick up the behavior and do basic thing itself.

Dataweave is a powerful functionality we have in Anypoint studio, which is again very smart palette.

Above all, availability of multiple connectors.

Cons: Setting up the project in local that too in new system is very difficult and time consuming. It takes too much time for updating dependencies, mostly maven.

Easy to use. Documentation for all the connectors are available.

Pros: The Anypoint custom connector feature is good. Wothout writing any code , we can implement Oauth or other authentication. For rest web services RAML feature is gud.

Cons: Data Sense won't work for Java transformers or Groovy transformations. Database Metadata won't form if we pass connection values using configuration files.

Overall: Can easily call web services, database. Can use java/ Groovy or SQL to validate data we are processing.

Pros: It's a fantastic tool to create APIs or microservices really quickly if you have the rest of your services in the cloud. For example, you have the possibility to create some microservices to connect your Salesforce platform with your Office platform or your ERP.

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.

Cons: At this time my only cons are to move the MuleSoft on-premises processes to the CloudHub because these requires some adaptations to run in Anypoint Platform.

Overall: My company uses this platform to maintain some integration services and to publish these to other companies.

Pros: The drag and drop feature, of course, datasense, data mapping for transformations. Does the heavy work of connecting to different services, allowing programmer to focus on programming things only.

Cons: Sometimes clicking on message processors don't open properties tab, you need to click on some other and then click back on the processor you want to, it happens especially with transform message.

Sometimes the changes are not reflected when deploying, so you have to delete .mule folder from workspace and launch again.
