Downloading and Launching Mule ESB

 Contents

This page describes a version of Mule that is currently available for deployment in CloudHub using the CloudHub Mule Runtime (December 2013). If you intend to deploy your application to an on-premise production server, use a Mule 3.4 runtime when you begin a new project in Mule Studio. Access Mule 3.4 documentation for details.

Learn more about our new release strategy for CloudHub and Mule ESB.

Downloading and Launching Mule 

    1. Before installing Mule ESB, be sure to install one of the Java Development Kits on your host machine: 
      • Java SE Development Kit Standard Edition 1.6.0_26 (also known as Java SE 6 Update 26)
      • Java SE Development Kit 7 (also known as Java SE 7u13)
      Running Studio on a Mac?
    2. Set your JAVA_HOME environment variable to the path in which you installed the JDK.
    3. Visit mulesoft.com to download Mule ESB Enterprise with Mule Studio. 
    4. Click to download the version of Studio that is compatible with your operating system: Windows, Mac, or Linux.
    5. Unzip the downloaded file to a directory on a hard drive located on your host machine.  The Mule Studio folder or directory appears when the unzip operation completes.
    6. If using a Mac OS, double-click the MuleStudio.app file, located in the MuleStudio folder.
      If using Windows, the muleStudio.exe file, located in the MuleStudio directory.
      If using Linux, double-click the muleStudio file icon, located in the MuleStudio directory.



    7. Click OK to accept the default workspace.



    8. Mule Studio launches, then displays a Welcome page. Click Go to Mule Studio to begin development immediately.
    9. Optional: Add Community runtime to your Mule Studio instance.
    10. Optional: Acquire an Enterprise license (recommended for running applications in production).


     Running Studio on a Mac?

    If you're using Mac OS X Mountain Lion, there are two extra considerations to be mindful of when running Mule Studio.

    Java Runtime Environment

    Check to confirm that Java runtime environment 6 or 7 is in place on your system. From the command line (Terminal app), run: java -version

    The response should appear similar to the following:

    If a Java runtime environment is not installed, the command triggers a prompt to install the JDK tools directly from Apple. Follow the instructions to download and install JDK 6 or 7.

     

    Application Execution

    By default, Mac OS X restricts execution of applications acquired outside the Apple App Store. Because you download Mule Studio outside the App Store, your system may prevent you from running Mule Studio applications and issue a warning message advising you to change your security settings to proceed. (Note: you must have Administrator privileges to adjust the security settings.)

    1. On your Mac, open System Preferences, then navigate to Security & Privacy.
    2. In the General tab, under "Allow applications downloaded from:" select the radio button for Anywhere.
