WSO2 Enterprise Integrator (WSO2 EI) tooling provides capabilities of a complete Eclipse-based development environment for WSO2 EI.

Installation prerequisites

You can install tooling using any of the following methods:

By default, some MacOS versions are shipped with JDK 1.9, which will not be compatible with WSO2 EI Tooling. Hence, you need to override it by installing Oracle JDK 1.8 and updating the folder path of the JDK 1.8 distribution in the Eclipse distribution.

For example, if you are using MacOS High Sierra (Version 10.13.4) with Oracle JDK 1.8.0_151, add the following properties to the <ECLIPSE_HOME>/Contents/Info.plist file.


Install WSO2 EI tooling with pre-packaged Eclipse

This method uses a complete plug-in installation with pre-packaged Eclipse so that you do not have to install Eclipse separately.

All you need to do is download the distribution based on your operating system, extract, and run it. For earlier versions, click More Resources and then click Previous Releases.

Getting an error message? See the troubleshooting tips given under Troubleshooting.


Follow the instructions given below, based on your OS, to resolve the errors you got and start using WSO2 EI tooling.

  • If you get an error message about the file being damaged or that you cannot open the file when you try to start Eclipse on a Mac, change the Mac security settings as described below.
    1. Go to System Preferences, click Security & Privacy, and then click the General tab.
    2. UnderAllow apps downloaded from, click Anywhere.
    3. Thereafter, start Eclipse by double-clicking the Eclipse icon and set your security settings back to the previous setting.
  • If you are running Mac OS Sierra, you must run Eclipse from the command line instead of double-clicking the Eclipse icon because this security setting (i.e., the Anywhere option) is not available in it. Follow the steps given below:
    1. Open a terminal and navigate to the <EI_TOOLING_LOCATION>/ directory.

    2. Execute the following command to start Eclipse.
