Eclipse users have always felt at home in Mule Studio, but users have often asked for Studio to “play well with others” — specifically, that it support plugin-style installation into existing Eclipse environments they already use every day.
With Mule Studio 3.4, we have delivered this wish list item. Specifically, users of Eclipse 3.8 can now install Mule Studio as plugins into their existing environments.
The old-fashioned way to do this is via the Eclipse Update Manager,
Today we are happy to announce the beta release of Mule 3.4. This release of Mule ESB and Studio bring together a large set of innovative features that together greatly improve developer productivity, add powerful capabilities for the development of SaaS integrations, and continue to strengthen Mule as an optimal integration platform for the new enterprise.
Before walking through the exciting set of new features that are in this beta,
We are pleased to announce the Beta Milestone 5 release of Mule Studio, the graphical design tool for Mule ESB. At its core, it is based on the Eclipse Development Platform which many developers are already familiar with. But we have added significant functionality to it to achieve a very tight integration to Mule ESB. This makes Mule Studio a powerful visual and coding environment for developing Mule ESB applications.
Mule configuration files are Spring XML files by nature. So the XML editor is an important development tool and provides a lot of benefit. When working in Eclipse, it provides:
- Schema documentation assistance for the element you are configuring
- Validation of your schema and context of any errors that are detected
- Autocomplete of elements and attributes based on what is valid in the current element of configuration you are editing
The Mule IDE does not natively support Mule 3’s new application structure yet, but not to worry, with the new 2.1 release of the Mule IDE you can still keep it hot when working in the IDE. Just follow a few simple steps and your apps will be doing the tango with Mule 3 while you code away in Eclipse.
Last Tuesday night’s demonstration of the MuleSoft’s Eclipse Tool Suite at the Vancouver Eclipse Demo Camp went well. I almost got Nerf-gunned for a (slight) overtime but the organizers’ mercifulness has allowed me reach the end of the demo with a running sample 🙂 For those who weren’t there, here is a summary of my presentation.
The challenge I’ve set to myself for this demonstration was the following: let’s figure out what’s the total length of roadworks currently happening in the city of Vancouver.
Most of our customers are using Tcat to build APIs. Anypoint Platform combines Tcat’s ease of use with built-in management and support. Whatever you’re building and deploying on Tcat, Anypoint Platform gives you agility, reusability, and transparency. Give Anypoint Platform a try for 30 days and see what you think.

For those of you who develop in Eclipse,
We have just released version 2.0.1 of Mule IDE. This release provides an important bug fix (the new configuration wizard no longer overwrites existing files without prior notice). It also provides support for the new Mule Data Integrator, which is about to be released.
