Subject [jira] [Commented] (ATLAS-2084) Make berkeley DB backed Atlas available without external download
Date Thu, 16 Nov 2017 10:43:00 GMT


David Radley commented on ATLAS-2084:

[~jonesn] I agree - I suggest closing this Jira. I think the effort should be to ensure we
can use the imbedded berkeleydb that is already in the build with Janus.

> In I proposed providing a dockerized
version of Atlas to aid people getting up to speed with the technology. During the review
it was noted that we had used Hbase for storage rather than the more lightweight, simpler,
BerkeleyDB. My concern had been around licensing.
> Today when we build Atlas following the instructions at
the user is directed to download the berkeleyDB jar from oracle. In ATLAS-2012 David/Graham
pointed out that this DB appears to be Apache 2.0 licensed, which means we could incorporate
it into our build legitimately.
> Given the necessity to get licensing correct I've opened up this new JIRA to focus on
that change. We would need to
>  * Validate we are indeed correct about the license
>  * Add the DB file into the build
>  * Update the web instructions
>  * And optionally as per the original JIRA, consider making B-DB the default for our
docker image (most lightweight).
> Please add your thoughts. I'm happy to get and do this change .
