We use MuleSoft Anypoint Platform to develop microservices. We bring MuleESB as a solution for transferring monolithic applications into microservices. Currently, I am working in a telecommunication industry and I would say there are lots of applications developed using the conventional and traditional architecture which more likely is a tight coupling system. As we bring MuleSoft Anypoint Platform, we are able to create a loosely-coupled architecture which is able to remove dependencies in other applications and it helps our applications to deliver on time. Unlike other conventional developments of Application Programming Interface (API) via JaxRS and JaxWS which requires you more experienced resources and programming language dependent, development of API using Mule is much better in terms of flexibility and scalability. One thing I like with Mule is you can develop an API even you are not fluent in any programming languages.,If you are working with 3 or more services to integrate with a different data source, you'll be able to see the benefits of using Mule. In terms of usability, you can develop an API even not fluent in any programming languages. Mule also provides a lightweight Java-based enterprise service bus.,Responsive IDE.

If you'll be working with 3 or more integration services you might need to use Mule.

  • Pricing is a plus point while comparing it to others in market
  • Development is a little complex in comparison to others in the market. A high learning curve is required for developers.
More suitable for complex integration scenarios as it supports Java code too. Need to have an experienced Mulesoft developer available with some Java background.

I'm using Mulesoft platform as pure ESB and not for back end features and is more flexible than other platforms. It enables the company to develop very complex integration architecture in few months, being able to modify or scale it in few steps, with not-so-expert developers and not-so-detailed technical documentation.

Anypoint Platform Review: "Powerful tool with smart intelligence"

MuleSoft Anypoint Platform can be used for multiple purposes like designing and implementing API, developing simple applications, integrating components etc. I and my organization mainly used the tool for designing and implementing of APIs. We also created basic application flow using the tool. The tool has an easy UI for developing applications. With just a drag and drop off icons your flow of the application is ready. The application helps us to understand the flow in an efficient way.
  • Good documentation to follow.
  • Easy drag and drop UI feature.
  • Excellent tool for development and deployment process.
  • Connected with many other supporting tools, so it easy to use our choice of platform for hosting application.
  • Would like to see more online tutorials on how to use the tool.
  • Mostly java based application.
The tool is well suited when a user is trying to develop and implement an API. It has an excellent user interface which makes the user enjoy his work. Also, if the user is developing SaaS based application, this is the best tool to use. This tool is handy when a user needs to design an architecture and see the flow.

EAIESB is Middleware Services/Solutions provider. We provide migration approaches and options from older technologies to the MuleSoft Anypoint Platform. It is lightweight and supports on-premises and cloud deployment (cloud-hub). We recommend it to customers that have on-premises or cloud connectivity. We have also implemented custom connectors to support BPM capabilities, error handling capability and other synchronous read capabilities on top of Mule.
  • On-Premises Connectors
  • Cloud SaaS Connectors
  • Cloud Social Network Connectors
  • Cloud Storage
  • API
  • EDI
  • Mule has improved and provided new features in Mule 4 (List Operations, Sync Read, where we have built our own connectors).
  • When extending Mule to support human workflow or approval, currently, it recommends using other providers. We have built a BPM solution connector using Mule. We will open source it.
  • Mule has implemented Flow Log/Monitoring Facility in Mule 4 Design Center implementation.
  • Extensive documentation to build custom connectors.
All connectors (On-Premises, Cloud Saas Apps, Cloud Storage, Big Data, API)

Review: "MuleSoft Anypoint Platform : A Powerful ESB & API Management Solution"

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review

MuleSoft Anypoint Platform is being used as an ESB (integration bus). It allows us to transport data from one application to other. It also allows us to transform data to canonical format and to perform synchronous and asynchronous data exchanges.
  • Open Source (even if there is no datamapper is not free).
  • MuleSoft Anypoint Platform is a Java product
  • We can use Maven to build projects and its dependencies
  • In MuleSoft Anypoint Platform Studio, we can build an API Management solution also.
  • The license is very expensive (for a big organization, it is very recommended to have an Enterprise License)
  • In a data flow, only one object contains all activities data (input/output)
  • Sometimes we have to write xml because the graphical designer of flows is not responsive.
Mulesoft Anypoint Platform is well suited if we want to have a complete solution which contains both an ESB and API Management and API led connectivity
