I'm Keiven, an experienced developer of MuleSoft technology. 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.

  • The trial is only for 30 days, which should be extended to atleast 60 days which i feel personally is good for developers to learn the product
Any realtime integrations are ideal use cases for Anypoint platform. Batch processes are not appropriate for Anypoint platform.

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.

Single stop solution for application and data integration needs available in cloud and on premise flavours. iPaaS abstracts a lot of complexities except that it still requires eclipse based devoplement. B2B gateway related features can be improved. Overall an integration platform worth considering.

More suitable for complex integration scenarios as it supports Java code too. Need to have an experienced Mulesoft developer available with some Java background.

  • 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

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.
