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

Installation prerequisites

Java Runtime Environment/JDK

Oracle Java SE Development Kit (JDK) 1.8 or later.

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.

Java Heap Memory2 GB (Minimum)
Processor2 GHz Core 2 Duo (Minimum)
Disk SpaceApproximately 1 GB

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.

Update WSO2 EI Tooling

To get the latest updates for your WSO2 EI Tooling:

  1. Start WSO2 EI Tooling, which you installed. 
  2. When the tool opens, go to Developer Studio -> Check for Updates. The following diagram illustrates this process in a MacOS.
