Installation

This Free Open Source version of M/DB is designed for use with the GT.M database http://fisglobal.com/Products/TechnologyPlatforms/GTM/index.htm. It also requires the Apache Web Server to be configured with our m_apache gateway.

See http://www.mgateway.com/mdb.html for full details about M/DB.

  • download the files MDB.m and MDBMumps.m, eg

    git clone git://github.com/robtweed/mdb.git

The destination directory in which you'll find the files is determined by the path in which you ran the above command.

Then copy all the files with a .m extension to your working GT.M directory (eg, on the M/DB Appliance, /usr/local/gtm/ewd)

If you are installing on a Caché system, import the contents of the file /lib/mdb.xml using $system.OBJ.Load(filepath).

Background

M/DB is an Open Source clone of SimpleDB that uses the Open Source GT.M Mumps database as the storage engine. M/DB behaves identically to SimpleDB, sharing its APIs.

The mdb repository also include M/DB:Mumps which provides an HTTP-based interface to the standard Mumps database. The interface makes use of the same security mechanism as SimpleDB to protect access to the back-end Mumps database.

M/DB:Mumps requires M/DB to be in place and initialised before it can be used.

The Node.js module node-mdbm makes use of M/DB:Mumps to provide the HTTP interface to/from the Mumps database.
