Command line

On any platform you can run UMongo from the command line. Open a terminal and go to UMongo's directory in which umongo.jar is present and run:

Using a Proxy

Often times your client machine cannot directly connect to the MongoDB hosts. One easy trick is to use a SOCKS proxy based on SSH tunnel to connect transparently:

> ssh -D 9000 -i key.pem hostThatCanConnectToDB -N

Then make sure you select a SOCKS proxy of "localhost:9000" in the connection settings.

To compile:

  • go to the base directory and run:

    > ant jar
    

To package the application:

  • go to the package folder and run:

    > ./package.sh
    

To set the version:
