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 WebLogic

I see Oracle WebLogic Application Server being appropriate when an application needs several different data sources and messaging providers configured and accessible, with a configured level of control of resources (connection pools) and timeouts. It is also advisable to create distributed resources that you can configure as always active to provide more processing power, or as failover for situations of availability in case of disaster recovery, for example.An application where the number of required resources configured is very small and almost non-changeable, and no scalability is required, some other options exist in the market with less cost.

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 WebLogic

  • Built-in diagnostic modules that can be easily activated for a server instance.
  • Ease of creating and maintaining multiple domains for different applications.
  • Ability to create virtual hosts and targets to which WebLogic Server instances or clusters respond.
  • Powerful clustering framework to balance the load on the server instances.

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 WebLogic

  • The Admin UI should be further simplified, the UI design was not too user-friendly— too many options and clicks required, difficult for the new beginners to figure out what they are looking for.
  • The admin server becomes the single failure point, although Oracle suggested some workarounds by setting VIP and VHost, it was not quite easy and straight forward.
  • Domain replication is hard, requiring a lot of knowledge and scripts efforts.
  • Admin will hang if the node manager communication encounters some issues for one or some nodes in the domain/cluster.
  • Not able to kill/terminate the stuck thread, the only way is to restart the managed server (JVM)
  • License cost is too high, for small businesses.

I would have given it a 10 but sometimes the hogging threads become a issue and needs server bounce. Except that, we are very pleased with the product.

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 WebLogic

Oracle WebLogic Application Server is a leading server side container. It is far superior than IBM's WebSphere application server, JBOSS or Tomcat server. The easiness of using Oracle's weblogic application server is much user friendly and also it has great support and user base globally. I would rate WebLogic to be #1 application server & highly recommend.

Return on Investment

Mule ESB

  • Overall a great tool for complex integrations
Ankit Goyal | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle WebLogic

  • In our business, availability is a critical issue, because the services must be running 24/7. Since we provide services in countries whose time zones are different, a pause in that service implies high monetary losses.
  • We can not afford for operations so it is worth investing in an engine that gives us all the stability and security you need, so each dollar is worth it.
  • The licensing of WebLogic servers in their most complete editions is not accessible for all types of companies, but in that case we visualize it as an investment, rather than as a cost.
