Anypoint Platform

Pros:
  • Basically, it is used to solve business problems where integration needs to be done between a legacy system and Salesforce.
  • Its capable of handling the integration between a variety of connectors.
  • The transformation is just so simple. We can use XML, JSON, and Java for it.
Cons:
  • The functions used in the transformation connector should be prompted automatically.
  • RAML should be designed and compiled within the Anypoint studio.

Mule ESB

If you’re bringing anything into Salesforce you should just invest now into Mule, you will get your money’s worth and find a myriad of uses to build APIs between many other systems. Once you build a component you can easily reuse it as a building block to attach to another source/destination. This makes it easy to ramp up quickly and spread usage of Mule throughout your enterprise. A good value for medium to large companies, but probably cheaper to outsource your job to a consulting firm if you are smaller.

Pros

Anypoint Platform

  • The Anypoint Exchange where there are huge number of connectors to connect to n number of external applications.
  • The API management stuff, securing and deploying a API(webservice) via client id and client secret.
  • The various policies that we can use to restrict access to our API like rate limiting, Quota etc.

Mule ESB

  • It is best suited for Rest API development. Mule ESB uses RAML as an API descriptor which is less complex and easy to understand. RAML is an open standard majorly supported by Mulesoft. Once RAML is developed, it is very easy (a few clicks)to create flows corresponding to the resources defined in the RAML. One can also include JSON schema validation in RAML, and with the use of APIkit router, Mule ESB makes the request validation very easy (it's automatic basically.)
  • Mule ESB comes with a large spectrum of community and enterprise connectors. We have connectors for all the major platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Salesforce, SAP, etc. This enables Mule ESB to integrate with the other systems in a faster and more robust way. Mule ESB has many components to fulfill the requirements of each integration (for example batch processing, parallel processing, choice, etc.)
  • Mule API gateway is one of the best tools (modules) of Mulesoft's offering. It supports API governance and management very well. One can easily enforce policies on their APIs with API gateway. It enables some of the must-have features in an API solution (i.e. throttling, oAuth, access levels, etc.)
  • Implementing a CI/CD (DevOps) environment for Mule ESB is a very easy task. Mule majorly uses MAVEN as its build tool, which in turn makes it best suitable for CI/CD approach. Mule also provides MAVEN plugins for auto deployments to the servers. Mule also has a best Unit testing module which is MUnit. MUnit can be used for both Unit and Functional testing, and it is easy to write and generates coverage reports in various formats.

Cons

Anypoint Platform

  • Responsive IDE. More likely they need to improve the IDE as it lags whenever you are working with 20-30 APIs in a package.

Mule ESB

  • Make sure to not over-engineer shared components. It can complicate development
  • Create a roadmap for where you are going - if not, you may miss components
  • I suggest getting support, otherwise it could be a difficult learning curve

Alternatives Considered

Anypoint Platform

It is a powerful tool with smart intelligence. The drag and drop feature makes my work easy. The tool has great connecting support which is the best reason to use the tool on a daily basis. Powerful functionality with designing and implementing APIs. Hosted on public IP.

Mule ESB

It doesn't have API . We have to go for another API manager. But in Mule, it has both API manager and ESB
