The ESB tooling plug-in gives is based on WSO2 Developer Studio Kernel, which gives the capabilities of a complete Eclipse-based development environment for the ESB. You can develop services, features and artifacts and manage their links and dependencies through a simplified graphical editor. 

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

There are 3 ways to install the tooling plug-in. The following two methods require you to install Eclipse Luna separately in your system, if you do not have it already:


  1. Make sure you have Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers (Luna SR2) installed.
  2. Open Eclipse and click Help > Install New Software.
  3. On the dialog box that appears, click Add.
  4. Give ESB Tool as the name and as the location and click OK.
  5. Select all the check boxes and click Next.

    When installing multiple WSO2 product plug-ins in the same Eclipse instance, you do not need to select the Developer Studio Kernel check boxes each time.
