"I think they don't want to talk about open source in production because it's such a big threat to their business. But really I think IBM is missing a big opportunity with Mule. At least half of our customer base is using Mule as a front-end broker and packet shaper for [IBM's MOM middleware] MQ. In other words, there are a lot of IBM customers out there with MQ who prefer to use Mule as their ESB rather than IBM's own ESB. IBM really ought to make friends with us because not all of these customers are going to buy WebSphere ESB."
