Static and dynamic TCP have been the most useful

What is our primary use case?

It's an ESB for both server-side as well as with eFTL, we are exposing messages to clients over web/mobile.

How has it helped my organization?

From the current direct socket architecture, we moved to an FTL based messaging layer which allowed us to not worry about individual functions but work on a single message/framework. 

What is most valuable?

  • Static and dynamic TCP have been the most useful. 
  • Easy on-boarding of the eFTL cluster, data store, and monitoring of connections have been really useful.

What needs improvement?

The UI is clunky for administration, eFTL at times is not fully stable and have observed a few crashes, and the content matcher could be improved for or conditions.
