Cons
Scripting needs improvement. It's hard for our customers.The components that they include in the product that are, in fact, a WTX, really need to be removed from the product because they tend to fail.The solution requires a lot of training manuals in order to get to know it better and to be able to use it effectively.

More IBM DataPower Gateway Cons »

The user interface could be improved to be more friendly for developers.When you have several tasks, you open a screen in a task in developing mode, and you don't see the parent screens. Debugging lacks the effects to solve problems. You have to do it first in a kind of studio. Then you have to be sure that you can do it in Magic because there is almost nothing to debug it. It's practically impossible to debug. You have to be sure before you put your snippets.
