A userspace service that provides access to the openWebOS database
DB8 is a userspace service that provides access to the webOS database. Access to the database APIs is provided over the luna-service bus. This initial release provides the infrastructure code to wrap a range of database engines. The webOS team is currently implementing support for the LevelDB engine and updates will be posted here.
Using the meta-webos layer for OpenEmbedded is the preferred method of building Open webOS components.
This allows your package to be installed into an Open webOS system, or as part of an Open webOS image.
Clone the repository at http://www.github.com/openwebos/build-webos and follow the instructions in that README to build Open webOS.
To build or rebuild a single Open webOS component, if your build-webos directory is ~/openwebos/build-webos, and you are wanting to rebuild the component called "db8", do:
$ cd ~/openwebos/build-webos $ make cleanall-db8 db8
The resulting IPK package will be in your BUILD-[target-machine] directory, under deploy/ipk/[architecture], such as this example:
You can transfer this to your existing image, and install it by logging into the Open webOS system, and using:
$ ipkg install /path/to/db8_2.0.0-1.00-r5_i586.ipk
Or you can create a completely new Open webOS image with:
$ make webos-image
After successfully building the latest stable version, you may configure build-webos to build this component from your own local clone.
You can specify what directory to use as the local source inside the file "global-webos.conf" in your home directory, or within the file "webos-local.conf" within the build-webos directory, by adding the following:
S_pn-[component-name] = "/path/to/component/source"
such as in this example:
S_pn-db8 = "/home/user/openwebos/db8"
Then follow the instructions above to rebuild and install this package.
It is often desireable, for rapid iteration and testing purposes, to build a component for use within the Open webOS Desktop system.
Clone the repository at http://www.github.com/openwebos/build-desktop and follow the instructions in the README file.
First, follow the directions to build the latest "stable" version.
To build your local clone of a component, such as db8, instead of the "stable" version installed with the build-webos-desktop script:
- Open the build-webos-desktop.sh script with a text editor
- Locate the function build_component-name (i.e., build_db8)
- Change the line "cd $BASE/db8" to use the folder containing your clone, for example "cd ~/openwebos/db8"
- Close the text editor
- Remove the file ~/luna-desktop-binaries/component-name/luna-desktop-build*.stamp (~/luna-desktop-binaries/db8/luna-desktop-build*.stamp)
- Rebuild by running the build-webos-desktop.sh script again
- When you re-clone openwebos/build-desktop, you'll have to overwrite your changes and reapply them
- Components often advance in parallel with each other, so be prepared to keep your cloned repositories updated
- Fetch and rebase frequently
This component of webOS can be built as a standalone piece that does not depend upon the rest of the system.
Below are the tools and libraries (and their minimum versions) required to build this package:
- openwebos/cmake-modules-webos 1.0.0 RC7
- cmake (version required by openwebos/cmake-modules-webos)
db8 support different database backends. To select db8 backend, set cmake variable WEBOS_DB8_BACKEND to one of supported database backends. Currently support database backends are:
$ cmake -D WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT:PATH=$HOME/projects/openwebos -D WEBOS_DB8_BACKEND:STRING=leveldb ..
By default, db8 compiles with berkeleydb database backend.
To build the unit tests for db8, specify a true value for
WEBOS_CONFIG_BUILD_TESTS on the cmake command line. For example:
$ cmake -D WEBOS_CONFIG_BUILD_TESTS:BOOL=TRUE
Once you have downloaded the source, execute the following to build it (after changing into the directory under which it was downloaded):
$ mkdir BUILD $ cd BUILD $ cmake .. $ make $ sudo make install
The directory under which the files are installed defaults to /usr/local/webos. You can install them elsewhere by supplying a value for WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT when invoking cmake.
$ cmake -D WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT:PATH=$HOME/projects/openwebos .. $ make $ make install
will install the files in subdirectories of $HOME/projects/openwebos.
Specifying WEBOS_INSTALL_ROOT also causes pkg-config to look in that tree first before searching the standard locations. You can specify additional directories to be searched prior to this one by setting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable.
To see all of the make targets that CMake has generated, issue:
$ make help
To enable debug loggin and additional debug checks, set variables MOJ_DEBUG=1 and MOJ_DEBUG_LOGGIN=1
From the directory where you originally ran
make install, enter:
$ [sudo] make uninstall
You will need to use
sudo if you did not specify
