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.

Oracle BPM Suite

Oracle BPM is well suited to organizations and environments that have a good understanding of their business processes and organizational structures. Trying to introduce a tool such as Oracle BPM into the organization without a good grasp on how the business operates is a recipe for disaster as the implementation will uncover all of the dirty secrets of an organizations business processes and bring them to light. BPM is not to be utilized for smaller service orchestrations or technical service implementations, these should be handled by the Oracle SOA Suite using the BPEL process manager, leaving BPM to handle the organizational business processes, referring to and including lower level services and BPEL processes as needed.

Pros

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.

Oracle BPM Suite

  • Modeling business processes - it is providing an interface where users can drag and drop many kinds of shapes to build a business process.
  • HumanTask - I consider this as being the key strength of Oracle BPM. It allows you to create approval flows in different ways and it manages the long-running processes (while waiting for people to interact with the flow).
  • The user-interface for user tasks - it is one place where you can see all tasks and their progress. Admins can see and interact with other people's tasks.

Cons

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

Oracle BPM Suite

  • Again, it takes a decent amount of IT knowledge to realize the full potential of the Oracle BPM Suite
  • It can tend to feel sluggish unless you slightly exceed the minimum system requirements
  • There are so many features that it can be difficult to know which ones to use and which ones not to use in a given situation

In many scenarios it should have provided more features. It took a lot of effort while debugging, making it difficult to maintain.

Alternatives Considered

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

Oracle BPM Suite

IBM's Rational RequistePro was considered as an alternative but due to the client's good experience with existing Oracle services, BPM Suite was finally decided upon.

Oracle BPM Suite

  • Documenting a flow to a client allows communicating the intention of a development and thereby minimizing changes that could delay the calendar.
  • Simulating macro processes allows you to visualize at an early stage the figures of a project in order to better manage resources.
