Downloading and Installing Anypoint Studio (OS X)


  • Ensure that you have the Java SE JDK 8 installed and configured.

  • Download the Anypoint Studio installation file from the Download Site.


  1. Extract the Anypoint Studio package and move it to your /Applications directory.

  2. Open the extracted Anypoint Studio.

  3. Click OK to accept the default workspace.

    • You must Use an absolute path when defining your workspace because Anypoint Studio does not expand the ~ tilde used in Unix and Linux systems.


If Anypoint Studio fails to load with a An Error Has Occured message, you must configure it to point to your JDK installation as the default VM:

  1. Go to your /Applications folder, right click the AnypointStudio package and select Show Package Contents.

  2. Go to Contents > Eclipse, and open the AnypointStudio.ini file.

  3. Add the -vm option to point to your specific JDK installation path.

    • The -vm option and the installation path must be on separate lines.

    • The value must be the full absolute or relative path to the Java executable, not just to the Java home directory.

    • The -vm option must occur after the other Studio-specific options (such as -product, --launcher.*, etc), but before the -vmargs option.
