We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

The most important feature is that it's best for JVM-related languages and JMS integration.Reliable message delivery and mirroring.It’s a JMS broker, so the fact that it can allow for asynchronous communication is valuable.Message broadcasting: There could be a use case sending the same message to all consumers. So as a producer, I broadcast the message to a topic. Then, whichever consumers are subscribed to the topic can consume the same message.I appreciate many features including queue, topic, durable topic, and selectors. I also value a different support for different protocols such as MQTT and AMQP. It has full support for EIP, REST, Message Groups, UDP, and TCP.

SDM: User-friendly tool which allows for a seamless approach to performing hotfixes, if required.ESB: Provides all kind of possibilities to resolve business needs. A lot of ready to use services plus custom Java services. I used a lot of them all.

Message Management: Better management of the messages. Perhaps persist them, or put in another queue with another life cycle.It does not scale out well. It ends up being very complex if you have a lot of mirror queues.The clustering for sure needs improvement. When we were using it, the only thing available was an active/passive relationship that had to be maintained via shared file storage. That model includes a single point of failure in that storage medium.Distributed message processing would be a nice addition.Needs to focus on a certain facet and be good at it, instead of handling support for most of the available message brokers.

It should include/add more services with the product as per market demand. It should include custom Java services developed by any organization or provide a platform where users/developers can share ideas/custom services, etc.You should not hurry with upgrades without testing the whole product completely.

You pay nothing for licensing, because the commercial model is a subscription. Other environments, such as QA and Development, are included in the subscriptionMuch better than Oracle SOA Suite.
