Upgrading from a previous version

If your Eclipse instance has Carbon Studio 1.x (the predecessor to Developer Studio) or Developer Studio 2.x installed, you should install a new instance of Eclipse for use with Developer Studio 3.7.0 and specify a new workspace.

If you do not want to install a second instance of Eclipse, you must remove all the features from the previous release (described below) before installing Developer Studio 3.7.0 and specify a new workspace for 3.7.0 configurations. Developer Studio 2.x configurations cannot be migrated to use the Developer Studio 3.x functionality.

If you do not have Carbon Studio 1.0.x or Developer Studio 2.x installed, skip ahead to Install Developer Studio.

It is possible to import existing projects from a previous version of Developer Studio to the current version.

Remove Carbon Studio 1.x and Developer Studio 2.x features

For best results, you should install Developer Studio 3.7.0 on a new instance of Eclipse instead of installing it on an existing instance, and specify a new workspace for 3.7.0. If you need to install Developer Studio 3.7.0 on your existing Eclipse instance and it has Carbon Studio 1.x or Developer Studio 2.x installed, you must remove these features before installing Developer Studio 3.7.0.

To remove previous features:

  1. In Eclipse, click Help -> Install New Software, and then click the already installed? link.
  2. Select all the features related to the following products and click Uninstall:
      • Application Server
      • Business Process Server
      • Carbon
      • Complex Event Server
      • Data Services
      • Enterprise Service Bus
      • Governance Registry
      • Smooks
      • User Management Core Tools
      • WSO2
  3. Review the features to be uninstalled and click Finish.
  4. Restart Eclipse.

You have now successfully uninstalled Carbon Studio 1.x and Developer Studio 2.x features and are ready to install Developer Studio 3.x as described in the next section.
