Install WSO2 EI tooling with pre-packaged Eclipse

Download the distribution based on your operating system from here, then extract and run the distributionit.


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. Alternatively, you can run Eclipse from the command line instead of double-clicking the Eclipse icon.


These instructions are for Mac OS El Capitan. If you are running Mac OS Sierra, the Anywhere security setting is not available, so you must run Eclipse each time from the command line instead of double-clicking the Eclipse icon because this security setting (i.e., Anywhere option) is not available in it.


  1. Go to System Preferences, click Security & Privacy, and then click the General tab.
  2. Under Allow apps downloaded from, click Anywhere.

Thereafter, you should be able to start Eclipse by double-clicking the Eclipse icon and can andcan set your security settings back to the previous setting.


If you are running WSO2 EI tooling on Ubuntu 16.04, be sure to add add the following lines of code in the eclipse.ini file before the following line: --launcher.appendVmargs, so that you can work with WSO2 EI tooling smoothly: 

Code Block

This makes you work smoothly with WSO2 EI. Also, this fix is required due to a known issue with the GTK version shipped with Ubuntu 16.04.
