Runtime Compatibility

  • Studio 7.3.2 comes bundled with Mule Runtime Engine 4.1.4, however you can use it with earlier Mule Runtime versions as early as 4.1.1.

Studio Compatibility

  • Projects created or updated with Studio 7.3.x or 7.2.x are not compatible with 7.1.x due to some improvements with the management of the mule-artifact.json file. The content of the file was reduced and part of the content used to be required by Studio 7.1.x.
    To fix this issue, you only need to update Studio to the latest 7.2.x version available. See Updating Workspaces for more information.

  • Workspaces created using Anypoint Studio 6.x or below are not compatible with Anypoint Studio 7 workspaces.

What’s New

The 7.3.2 Studio release includes a number of bug fixes.

Hardware Requirements

  • For most use cases, Anypoint Studio with the 4.1.4 Runtime does not change hardware or software requirements from the previous Studio 7 versions.

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

  • 4GB of free memory available.

  • 2GHz CPU.

  • 10GB free hard drive space.

Software Requirements



Java Environments

  • AdoptOpenJDK 8

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

Operating Systems

  • MacOS 10.12.0

  • Windows (32- and 64-bit) Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10

Studio comes with Maven 3.3.9 bundled, but you can externally use the versions: 3.3.3 or your own 3.3.9

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

  • Studio 7 only supports Mule 4.x projects. Due to the structure of projects, export format, xml and scripting language differences, we do not offer backwards compatibility with Mule 3.x runtimes.

  • Because the metadata propagation works differently in Studio 7, Datasense might display errors if your DataWeave code has references to unknown metadata either because you didn’t define the metadata before writing your code, or because your flow is still incomplete.
    See Understanding How DataSense Uses Mule Event Metadata and Transform Message Component for more information.

  • Some existing features in Studio 6.x are not yet supported in Studio 7: Custom Policies, API Sync, Anypoint Private Cloud.

  • Anypoint Studio uses your configured default browser to display web content such as Exchange and the Runtime Manager UI when deploying an application to Anypoint Platform. If your default internet browser does not display this content correctly, you can configure Anypoint Studio to use a Mozilla/XULRunner runtime environment as the underlying renderer for the Web UI.
    Follow the FAQ: Troubleshooting Issues with Your Default OS Browser for more details.
