This article tells about how you can install Mule Standalone runtime and how you can deploy a Mule project/application. We will also see how it runs and gives a result similar to what can be done in Mule Anypoint Studio.

  1. We need to download the Mule Standalone runtime from this location

  2. Once you have downloaded the runtime, you need to unzip that file to where you want to place it and run it from in your machine.

  3. The best place to put it is in your Anypoint Studio Installation folder, so that all the things will fall under a single tree.

  4. We can find the mule.bat file in the bin folder of the runtime; we need to use this batch file to start the standalone runtime.

  5. First, we should have a project that is ready for deploying in the runtime. For that, we need to go to Anypoint Studio and create an application.

  6. This is going to be a simple project that uses the helloworld example; it includes an HTTP Component, SetPayload Component, and a logger, as shown in the screenshot.Image title

  7. Once the app is ready, we need to run this application in Anypoint Studio to see if it is working or not. We can check with Postman and make sure it is working.

  8. We need to export this project from Anypoint Studio as a Mule application deployable archive, as shown in the below screenshot; this should be done while the application is running in Anypoint Studio.Image titleImage title

  9. Once we have the archive, make sure we have stopped the project in Anypoint Studio. Then we need to copy this archive file to the {mule-standalone-runtime}/apps folder.

  10. We are all set to start the run-time from the bin folder. Double click mule.bat; it will take a few minutes when you are running it for the first time.Image title

  11. You can see that the application is deployed from the runtime, and you can go to the postman and test it to see if it is working or not.

  12. You can see the response received from the application.

This is how we can deploy and use an application with Mule Standalone runtime.
