Anypoint Studio 7.16.0 Release Notes

Anypoint Studio is an Eclipse-based integration development environment for designing and testing Mule applications.

November 9, 2023

What’s New

  • Improved stability by updating Apache Maven to 3.9, Mule Maven Plugin (MMP) to 4.0.0, and Eclipse to 4.27

    Update your projects to the latest Studio, Maven, and MMP versions to obtain the best user experience, or use your own Maven if you need customization and flexibility.

    Studio 7.16.0 upgrades to Eclipse 4.27 to deliver robust features, customizations, additional stability, and improvements.

  • Stronger API development experience

    Studio 7.16.0 provides a simplified API development experience by adding safeguards to prevent API discovery from affecting API development. You can focus on building integrations and APIs without interruptions.

Workspace Upgrade Requirements

Anypoint Studio enables you to create and organize projects in workspaces. When you first open Studio, it automatically generates a default workspace to store all your projects. Your Mule application projects might not be fully compatible with workspaces of a different version of Studio.

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

See Update Workspaces for more information.

    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

  • Operating Systems

    • macOS 11 through 12.4

    • Windows 10, Windows 11 (64-bit)*

*Windows 11 and RHEL support is based on the Eclipse support matrix. Learn more about Eclipse target environments.

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.
