Cons
When working on an elaborate rule, I end up creating it in notepad and then pasting it into the Extended Rule window, which is not convenient.Map translator needs more enhancements.End-to-end visibility and monitoring application required. The control center is available and covers this area, but it still fails in many monitoring scenarios.API-Fication required, and there should be more clarity on their cloud migration strategy.

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.The Anypoint platform consumes a lot of memory, and it would be great for developers if it were more lightweight.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.We would like to have a built-in logging framework in which we can do auditing.I would like to see support for BPM in the next release of this solution.The payment system needs improvement.
