I installed jdk 1.8 and set the JAVA_HOME variable in my ubunut 16.04 LTS machine.
After that I downloaded Anypoint studio and extracted the files in it. Then when I run the studio it is getting opened properly. But remaining controls seems not working properly.
For example, When I click on windows->preferences and searching for 'JRE', it is not searching at all. Did anyone has same/similar issues?
You should check and see if Anypoint Studio supports Java 8 currently. I just switched to version 3.8 and my Studio seems to "want" Java 1.7. I have version 8 Java on my machine but I noticed that the latest version of Anypoint Studio (using 3.8 Mule EE) wants to use 1.7. I tried to select my 1.8 Java and it said that Anypoint Studio would still be using a compiler compliance level of 1.7.
Go read the documentation on the Mule site.
