Preparing a Community DataMapper Project to Run on Enterprise

Mule allows you to develop and preview Anypoint DataMapper-enabled applications with the Studio graphical interface included in both the Community (CE) and Enterprise (EE) editions. However, only the Enterprise edition server can actually run these DataMapper-enabled applications. Therefore, you need to prepare the Datamapper projects you have developed in CE by completing the following tasks:

  1. Export your project from your CE instance of Mule.

  2. Import your project into your new EE Mule instance.

Exporting a Project From Mule CE

  1. In Mule Studio CE, click the File menu, then select Save.

  2. Click the File menu again, then select Export.

  3. In the Export wizard, click the plus (plus) or (arrow >) icon to the left of Mule.

  4. Select Mule Studio Project . . ., then click Next.


  5. In the Export Settings pane, click the down arrow to the right of the Project field, then select the Studio project you wish to export.

  6. In the Zip file field, use the Browse…​ button to specify a location on your hard drive in which Mule will store your exported Studio project.


  7. Click Finish.

  8. Optionally, verify the existence of the zip file by navigating to the folder on your hard drive in which Mule saved your project.

Importing a Project to Mule EE

  1. If you have not already done so, download Mule ESB Enterprise Edition (with Studio).

  2. Follow the included instructions to install Mule ESB Enterprise Edition.

  3. Launch your new Mule EE instance, which opens the Studio interface.

  4. Click the File menu, select Import.

  5. In the Import wizard, click the plus (plus) (or arrow >) icon to the left of Mule.

  6. Click Mule Studio generated Deployable Archive . . ., then click Next.


  7. Click the ellipsis button (…​) to the right of the Zip File field, navigate to the zip file you exported from CE and saved to your local drive, then click Open. (Mule populates the Project Name field automatically).


  8. Click Finish so that Studio imports, then opens the project.

  9. Right click the name of the flow in your DataMapper project (i.e., <ProjectName>.mflow).

  10. Select Run As, then select Mule Application.


Studio runs the application with DataMapper.
