Studio in Eclipse

As an Eclipse-based IDE, Anypoint Studio has adopted many of the functionalities Eclipse has to offer. However, you don’t need to download a new IDE in order to take advantages of all that Studio provides. If you are already an Eclipse user, you can simply download and install Studio as an Eclipse plug-in

The Anypoint Studio Eclipse plugin is accessible in the Java, Java EE, and STS distributions that use Eclipse 4.4

Note: Anypoint Studio supports JDK 7 only.

  1. In Eclipse, under the Help menu, select Install New Software.

  2. In the first panel of the Install wizard, enter the following URL in the Work With field, then click Next.

  3. Click the checkbox for Anypoint Studio and click Next.

  4. Review the install details, then click Next.

  5. Accept the terms and conditions of the license agreement, then click Finish.

  6. Eclipse installs Anypoint Studio, then demands a restart of the application. 

  7. After Eclipse restarts, click Window > Open Perspective > Other > Mule Design

When you run your Mule application via the Studio plugin, be sure to run it using Run As > Mule Application with Maven.


Further, ensure that you have all the JARs your project requires, and ensure that you have adjusted their scope from "provided" to "compile" in Maven.
