The API Manager tooling plug-in gives the capabilities of a complete Eclipse-based development environment for the API Manager. You can develop services, features, and artifacts, and manage their links and dependencies through a simplified graphical editor.

You can install multiple  WSO2 product tooling plug-ins  on top of the same Eclipse instance.

There are 3 possible methods you can use to install the tooling plug-in.

Install the plug-in with pre-packaged Eclipse

On the API Manager product page, click Download, click Download Tooling and then click on the respective link under Full Distribution to download the distribution according to your operating system under the  Eclipse JavaEE Mars + API Manager Tooling 2.1.0 section.
