Build the source code
NoteCentOS 7 is the recommended Linux distribution for development and production platform for YugabyteDB.
Install necessary packages
First, install Homebrew , if you do not already have it. We will use this to install the other required packages.
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$( curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Install the following packages using Homebrew:
brew install autoconf automake bash bison ccache cmake \ coreutils flex gnu-tar icu4c libtool maven \ ninja pkg-config pstree wget zlib [email protected]
NoteYugabyteDB build scripts rely on Bash 4. Make sure that which bash outputs
/usr/local/bin/bashbefore proceeding. You may need to put
/usr/local/binas the first directory on
~/.bashrcto achieve that.
Building the code
Assuming this repository is checked out in
~/code/yugabyte-db, do the following:
cd ~/code/yugabyte-db ./yb_build.sh release
The above command will build the release configuration, put the C++ binaries in
build/release-gcc-dynamic-community, and will also create the
build/latest symlink to that directory.
TipYou can find the binaries you just built in
For Linux, it will first make sure our custom Linuxbrew distribution is installed into
Build Java code
YugabyteDB core is written in C++, but the repository contains Java code needed to run sample applications. To build the Java part, you need:
- JDK 8
- Apache Maven .
Also make sure Maven's bin directory is added to your
PATH (for example, by adding to your
~/.bashrc). See the example below (if you've installed Maven into
For building YugabyteDB Java code, you'll need to install Java and Apache Maven.
