Cons
"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.""There are some issues with both stability and scalability.""There are limitations with the subscription model that comes with the product.""In an upcoming release, I would like to see more additional concept for exception handling, batch processing, and increased integration with other application."

More Mule ESB Cons »

"Migration to cloud solutions or products should be made convenient, transparent, and easily understandable.""In the next release, there should be improvements made to the API manager.""If TIBCO could be able to sort the size of their base image in the Container edition, it would be really marvelous. Right now it's around 299 MB. We'd really want it to reduce to a few MBs.""Our version does not have cloud capabilities.""The stability of their latest version is not on par with their classic version 5.X.""The intermediate version that we are using has stability issues. These stability issues should be resolved, but it seems like TIBCO is not focusing on resolving these issues. The resolution timelines are quite high even for high-priority incidents. Its price should be lower. Its licensing cost is considerably high as compared to other ESBs."

Overview
For companies looking to modernize and unlock the value of existing on-premises systems and applications, an enterprise service bus (ESB) architecture serves as a critical foundation layer for SOA. When deployed as an ESB, the Mule runtime engine of Anypoint Platform combines the power of data and application integration across legacy systems and SaaS applications, with a seamless path to the other capabilities of Anypoint Platform and the full power of API-led connectivity.
TIBCO ActiveMatrix Service Bus is a platform for developing, deploying, and managing applications that conform to a service-oriented architecture. TIBCO ActiveMatrix Service Bus is a lightweight enterprise service bus that helps organizations bridge the mediation gap in their SOA infrastructure. It reduces complexity and increases flexibility and reuse by replacing hard-coded service dependencies with configuration, and can be used to onboard services from a third-party environment or a TIBCO-based infrastructure. TIBCO ActiveMatrix Service Bus provides service mediation capabilities to the TIBCO ActiveMatrix SOA platform. Service mediation allows you to adapt to changing requirements for developing mediation flows.
