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 Anypoint 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 Anypoint Studio folder or directory appears when the unzip operation completes.
    6. If using a Mac OS, double-click the AnypointStudio.app file, located in the AnypointStudio folder.
      If using Windows, the anypointStudio.exe file, located in the AnypointStudio directory.
      If using Linux, double-click the anypointStudio file icon, located in the AnypointStudio directory.



    7. Click OK to accept the default workspace.



    8. Studio launches, then displays a Welcome page. Click Create a Project to begin development immediately.
    9. Optional: Add Community runtime to your 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 Anypoint 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 Anypoint Studio outside the App Store, your system may prevent you from running 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.
    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)
    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 Management Tools. 
    4. Navigate to the folder that contains your copy of Mule Enterprise Standalone, then unpack and uncompress the file.
    5. Open a system terminal and navigate to the freshly extracted folder, for example by running cd mmc-distribution-mule-console-bundle-3.5.0.
    6. From the terminal, run the appropriate startup command for your operating system.
      1. Windows:


      2. Linux or Mac:

    7. Wait for Mule to start running, which may take a minute or two. MMC will automatically deploy and start running from an embedded Tomcat server. Once Mule and MMC are running, you should see a message similar to the following:

    8. The Mule startup messages displays the URL where Tomcat is serving the MMC application, for example http://localhost:8585/mmc-3.5.0. Use a Web browser to navigate to this URL.

    9. You will be greeted by the MMC welcome screen, shown below. Log in with username admin, password admin.


    To stop Mule, run the shutdown.sh script (or shutdown.bat if on Windows) from the root folder of your installation.

    For full details on the different options for running the startup, shutdown and status scripts, see Installing the Trial Version of MMC.

    The trial version is not suitable for running applications in production. To run applications in production, acquire an Enterprise license.

    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)
    2. Set your JAVA_HOME environment variable to the path in which you installed the JDK.
    3. Visit mulesoft.org to download Mule ESB Mule ESB Standalone Runtime (without Studio).
    4. Navigate to the folder that contains your copy of mule standalone, then unzip the file. Alternatively, use unzip command from the terminal or command line.
    5. From the command line, start Mule using the following command:
      1. Windows:


      2. Linux or Mac:

    6. Mule starts running locally on your hard drive.
