The ESB is in hot demand now a days. Over the years the enterprises have been doing their projects and have legacy and tightly coupled products.
The challenge is to have a middle ware to reduce dependency between the providers and consumers. This should be achieved without the calling components know about the servicing components.
The ESB should be able to handle this like a black box.

The best ESB in the market would be
1) Apache ServiceMix
2) JBoss Fuse or FuseSource
3) IBM Websphere Integration Bus / Message Broker
4) Mule ESB from MuleSoft
5) TIBCO Business Works.
6) Volante Designer/Simulator.
7) Oracle Service Bus

There are so many players in the market. The mostly used ESB is Apache ServiceMix, JBoss Fuse and Mule ESB which are Open Source technologies which are very good. Best among Open source would be Apache Service Mix and JBoss Fuse which are based on JBI and NMR specifications. Both these ESB's are built over OSGI initiative and support JBI and NMR specifications which is the future on how the ESB's should be designed.

Websphere Integration Bus , TIBCO Business Works and Oracle Service Bus are costly products which comes up with the support and is relied upon by major Banks and Financial institution all over the world.
Of these the major player in the market is IBM Websphere Integration Bus / Message Broker.All these projects helps you to create BPEL flows and integrate with inputs and output systems like File, FTP ,Http , webservice components etc

Volante Designer tool could be used as a true ESB which combines the capability of creating BPEL flows () and integration with the input and output systems which is one of the very good ESB's.
Mule ESB is currently been used for quite time in US now and was a buzz in the beginning.

According to my experience, major players in demand would be as follows:
1) Apache ServiceMix
2) JBoss Fuse or FuseSource
3) IBM Websphere Integration Bus / Message Broker

Can you provide reference for this claim ?

And others are not "true ESB"? In your opinion, what makes a product "true" or "untrue"?

This looks more like a blog post to me than something that might lead to a fruitful discussion. It also seems to be a duplicate of another post. Closing.
