Subject [jira] [Commented] (AVRO-829) Enhance the build.sh script to support building a subset of the available language bindings
Date Thu, 26 May 2011 13:16:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-829?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13039695#comment-13039695

Doug Cutting commented on AVRO-829:

This looks good.  A few comments and questions about the patch:
- is it possible to have a single list of all languages, so that adding a new language is
less error-prone?
- it might be nice if the 'e' function accepted a list rather than a string as the command,
so that one could more easily pass commands that incorporate quotes in their parameters.
- test_rpc_interop.sh might still run, restricted the lang provided.  The 'clients' and 'servers'
list there should be simply set to include only the language specified.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-829
>             Project: Avro
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: build
>         Environment: POSIX compatible operating systems.
>            Reporter: Joseph Koshy

>   Original Estimate: 1h
>  Remaining Estimate: 1h
> Avro supports a number of language bindings, currently: {{c}}, {{c++}}, {{c#}}, {{java}},
{{ruby}}, {{php}}, {{python}}.
> The top level build script ({{build.sh}}) attempts to build all language bindings by
default.  Thus, building Avro from source requires compilers and interpreters for *all* these
languages to be present on a developer's system.
> The attached patch adds support for a {{-l}} _LANG_ option to {{build.sh}}, allowing
the build to be restricted to the specified language(s).  This feature allows someone interested
in just a few bindings to build only the relevant parts of the Avro source tree.
