More Aurea CX Messenger Pros »

"OpenESB pushes the organization to clearly define service boundaries and interfaces. So it motives the business and the development teams to clearly define their business services and processes they want to implement. OpenESB supports fine and coarse-grain granularity for the services and supports top-down and bottom-up approaches for the services, processes definition, and composition.""The core is very stable.""One of the most valuable features is being able to implement business processes while keeping track of the design from BPMN to a BPEL Implementation."

Cons
"The solution needs to improve support for new, more recent protocols on the API."

"The documentation of the product must be improved. It could be tricky to find the right documentation on a topic since the documentation is spread in many places. I advise the new joiner to contact the community to get entry points and additional documentation. Tutorial and Video must be present to take up the product.""The documentation needs to be better.""Regarding its management, a web console being able to synchronize distributed instances would be great."
