What do you think of Mule ESB?

What is most valuable?

Documentation is cryptic, product releases are far too frequent, and upgrades become troublesome.

For how long have I used the solution?

1 year as a developer and architect.

What is most valuable?

Flexibility and high performance.

Mule ESB has a lot components and tools that apply integration patterns making it easier to development without much knowledge of patterns

How has it helped my organization?

It allows communication between different applications with different protocols. It's also helped solve business integration issues. Mule ESB is the heart of applications that required routing and improvement of messages such as electronic invoicing

What needs improvement?

The documentation is not extensive and is limited to examples which are too basic.

What is Mule ESB?

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.
