More Aurea CX Messenger Cons »

"I would like to see support for BPM in the next release of this solution.""We would like to have a built-in logging framework in which we can do auditing.""Mule ESB is more into the latest REST APIs, not much into the SOAP web services. Developing is all about web services and not easy with Mule.""The Anypoint platform consumes a lot of memory, and it would be great for developers if it were more lightweight.""The solution isn't as stable as we'd like it to be. There are some ongoing issues and therefore Mule has to provide frequent patches. Mule's core IP should be more stable overall.""Lacking some connectors that could be included.""It's not easy to troubleshoot and we still can't make it work.""MuleSoft is not so strong in method-based integration, so they're not so functional in that regard."
