As I was implementing for a client, time to implement and getting a system up and running w/o issues and cost were major issues. This product succeeded, and the client is quite pleased.

Pros

The ability to load and install for free with some support. The advanced integration and API approach for combining services and other products makes the product extremely useful and quick to test and implement without any financial commitment.

Cons

LIke any other free open-software package, when it works, it's fantastic. When it doesn't, or when you are trying to do something that doesn't seem like a common usage, it can seem like you're on your own. It can take a while, solutions can be found, but it can take some time.

You define your limits.

Pros

The flexibility it provides to build things.

Review Source: Capterra

I have been using Mulesoft ESB for our Integration needs in the enterprise.
Anypoint Studio is fabulous, it has so many connectors that helps your requirements to complete in time and with ease.
you have variety of components for each use case and also u get a great support from the developer forums and mulesoft dedicated support.
Mulesoft site has so much documentation about the feature and components available, they give you a clear idea of how to use effectively.

I recommend this as your one stop solution for all your integration needs, it also has various other features like EDI.

Pros

So many Connectors available already in the tool and also there is a scope for new connectors as it is a open source. This gives freedom to the developer to use them conveniently.

Anypoint Studio Does the Job

Used Daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Using Anypoint Studio in my day-to-day work for integrations, I've found that Anypoint studio makes creating simple integrations very easy to do. However, once we get into more complicated integrations, Anypoint starts to get a little less usable with just the out-of-the-box features. At least they make it fairly simple to add custom processes.

Pros

A lot of out-of-the-box content

Cons

Support is not that great.

Awesomesauce! A platform that really delivers on ease of API management and Flexibility.

Reviewed on 31/3/2016
Review Source: Capterra

I have used the Anypoint Platform to create a Multi Protocol Messaging Platform (using SMPP and SMTP). Harnessing the capability to design, run and deploy all in one platform, I have shortened my development timeline (and probably my headache) from an estimated two years to almost 6 months.

The pros:
* Flexible - In terms of what solutions you can do, from Automating event-driven services to
orchestrating various exposed APIs.
* Well Adapted by the Community - There are lots and lots of tutorials that will let you in on the "How-to's", ranging from videos, blog posts, forums and knowledge sharing sites (im looking at you, stackoverflow)
*Very Powerful - Even using the base building blocks/components of the Anypoint Platform you can certainly do a lot, Simple Automatation, Complex chaining of API calls (and gather them back as one neat result) Capture and Filtering reports, Gather and Analysing data from logs..most especially given the rise of the IoT or Internet of Things. You can even build your own custom components to leverage the capability of the platform.

The cons:
* Steep Learning Curve - Coming from a web development background, it has a lot of settings that may or may not break your application. It will take practice before you can successfully say that you have an optimum working application. But this gripe comes from a 7 year PHP based developer with little to none experience in developing applications using Java. :)

Generally simple and easy-to-use , but there are some minor frustrations.

Reviewed on 9/11/2015
Review Source: Capterra

The graphical nature of the Anypoint Studio IDE makes it relatively simple to use and the training is of a good quality. Therefore, the learning curve to create simple (but useful) apps is not steep. However, as with any tooling of this nature, it does require time and commitment to become truly knowledgeable and skillful.

The platform itself is one of the better open-source ESBs (the enterprise version providing even more connectivity). There is a large amount of functionality contained within tool which is still growing. I also find that patches to issues (raised with Mulesoft) do come relatively quickly.

There are some minor issues with the IDE - the visual debugger is one area that (I think) could do with some TLC. The other, which I find more of a frustration, seems to be an issue with how responsive the IDE is at times. It can hang and sometimes the only way to deal with this issue is to close it down and start it up again (but not sure if this is an underlying issue with Eclipse).

I haven't yet encountered any issues with the stand-alone runtime yet and that does seem solid, but note, I've only used the Linux version.
