"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.

There are some ongoing issues and therefore Mule has to provide frequent patches.
