Anypoint Studio 7.10.0 Release Notes

July 29, 2021

What’s New

Anypoint Studio 7.10 introduces a notification mechanism to help you keep up to date with your module’s versions in Exchange. It enables you to propagate metadata to flows and sub-flows, and to rename a flow and have that change refactored automatically to the rest of your project.

Studio 7.10 also improves the dark theme experience and upgrades its underlying infrastructure to Eclipse 4.19.

See configure Private Cloud Edition in Studio for more information.

Before attempting to connect to Anypoint Platform by using multi-factor authentication (MFA), change the Browser setting from Built-in to Native.
See Configure Studio’s Browser Settings.

Workspace Upgrade Requirements

Anypoint Studio creates workspaces in which you can create and group your projects. By default, the first time you open Studio, it creates a default workspace and holds all your projects in it. Your Mule application projects might not be fully compatible with workspaces created by a different version of Studio.

Projects created using Studio 6.x.x are not compatible with Studio 7 because they are Mule 3 projects.

See Update Workspaces for more information.

Hardware Requirements

  • 8GB of memory.
    MuleSoft recommends a minimum of 4GB of free RAM available on a developer workstation. As applications become complex, consider adding more RAM.

  • 2GHz CPU.

  • 10GB free hard drive space.

Software Requirements

  • Java Environments:
    Studio bundles two different JDKs:

    • AdoptOpenJDK 11 (11.0.10_9)
      JDK 11 starts and runs Studio and the Mule runtime instance used for tooling.

    • AdoptOpenJDK 8 (8u282-b08)
      JDK 8 is the default JRE to run Mule projects

      You can configure Studio to start using your preferred JDK version by following the Configure Studio to Use Your Own JDK steps.

      See the What’s New in Studio for more information.

This version of Studio is not compatible with Java 9 or Java 10.

  • Operating Systems

    • macOS 10.12.0 through 11.0.0

    • Windows 10 (64-bit)

    • RHEL 7.0

    • Ubuntu 15.04 or later

Running real-time antivirus protection software on your operating system might have a negative impact on Anypoint Studio performance. Although this issue is prominent on Windows, it also occurs on Linux and macOS.

Although the steps to solve these performance issues vary depending on your antivirus software, a typical solution is to either allow or exclude the Anypoint Studio and java executables, the Studio install and workspace filesystem locations, or some combination of both. See examples of solutions for McAfee Viruscan, Windows Defender, and Symantec Endpoint Protection.

Known Issues

  • Toolbar buttons of Views could disappear under some combination of state and actions. (Eclipse Bug #572598)

  • Context help wizard is not styled correctly in dark theme. (Eclipse Bug #532184)
