Upgrading from an existing instance of Anypoint Studio or previous Mule runtime version? Refer to the Migration Guide.

This release also supports the Mule ESB 3.6.1 runtime which addresses a critical security issue.

Migration Guide

This section presents configuration considerations you may want to adjust when migrating from a previous version of a Mule runtime, or previous version of Studio. Contact MuleSoft Support if you have a question about a specific migration activity or concern.

Because the base version of Eclipse used by Anypoint Studio has changed from 3.8 to 4.4 (Eclipse Luna) in the January 2015 release of Studio, Studio cannot be updated from versions that are older than the January 2015 release. If that’s the case, you must download and install the latest version.

If you already have the last version of Studio (January 2015) no special migration considerations are needed, use Help > Check for Updates.
  • If you are upgrading from Studio 5.0.0 to 5.1.0, you can update Studio. If you are upgrading from an earlier version, you will need to download the latest version and create a new version. This step is required because of the changes to Eclipse, as described in the note above.

    If you are using Studio as a plugin to Eclipse, it will only work with Eclipse version 4.3 or 4.4 due to a dependency on Maven SWT.
  • APIkit 1.5.1 only works in runtimes whose versions are older than 3.6.0. APIkit 1.6.0 works in the 3.6.0 runtime and above (see JIRA STUDIO-5955).

  • Java 7 is required for Anypoint Studio. If you are deploying to Java 6 runtimes, you can continue to configure Java 6 as the Java runtime for your project.

To replace the deprecated HTTP connector for the new high-performance HTTP Connector, refer to Migrating to the New HTTP Connector.

If you wish to install a previous runtime or a community runtime, follow the instructions to add additional runtimes to your new instance of Studio.

You can easily import all of the external components that you had installed in your old version of Anypoint Studio through a single action. This includes connectors, runtimes, and any other type of extension added through the Anypoint Exchange or the ​Help → Install new software​ menu, as long as there are no compatibility restrictions.

Do this by selecting File→Import and then choose Install→From existing installation.


Then specify the location of your old version of Anypoint Studio in your local drive.

APIkit Considerations

When downloading this version of Anypoint Studio fresh, it includes two versions of APIkit:

  • 1.5.2 - Works with runtimes lower than 3.6.0 (not included)

  • 1.6.1 - Supports the new HTTP connector and works with runtimes 3.6.0 and above

When upgrading from an old version of Anypoint Studio, an update of 1.5.2 Apikit version is performed automatically, however version 1.6.1 is not included in the update and must be manually installed. You can install this by going to Help > Install New Software and selecting the APIkit Update Site from the Work with drop-down menu.

Hardware and Software System Requirements


This version of Anypoint Studio requires Java 7. Java 6 is not supported, and Java 8 is not supported by the Mule 3.6.0 Runtime or later.

For most use cases, Anypoint Studio March 2015 with 3.6.1 Runtime does not change the hardware and software system requirements established by Anypoint Studio October 2014 with 3.5.2 Runtime. MuleSoft recommends a minimum of 4 GB RAM on a developer workstation. As applications become complex, consider adding more RAM. Please contact MuleSoft with any questions you may have about system requirements.
