I have mixed feelings with Servicemix. Introducing JBI Messaging API is good move, but deployment model with all that SA/SU is painful for developer. Servicemix 4.x introduced OSGi and Spring deployment but it's still rather unstable despite quite mature 4.4.x release. The Fuse team is doing great job (with recent Fabric release) , but Apache version's decumentation and release schedule needs to be improved. And is Servicemix something more than Camel/CXF container? Maybe with some monitoring/governance tools (but they're still missing...)
