Subject Apache NiFi MiNiFI C++ 0.2.0 Release Helper Guide
Date Fri, 05 May 2017 15:40:37 GMT
Hello Apache NiFi community,

Please find the associated guidance to help those interested in validating/verifying the release
so they can vote.

# Download latest KEYS file:

# Import keys file:
gpg --import KEYS

# Pull down nifi-minifi-cpp-0.2.0 source release artifacts for review:


# Verify the signature
gpg --verify nifi-minifi-cpp-0.2.0-source.tar.gz.asc

# Verify the hashes (md5, sha1, sha256) match the source and what was provided in the vote
email thread
md5sum nifi-minifi-cpp-0.2.0-source.tar.gz
sha1sum nifi-minifi-cpp-0.2.0-source.tar.gz
sha256sum nifi-minifi-cpp-0.2.0-source.tar.gz

# Untar nifi-minifi-cpp-0.2.0-source.tar.gz
tar xf nifi-minifi-cpp-0.2.0-source.tar.gz

# Verify the build works

Be mindful of the pre-requisites required for the C++ version of MiNiFi, enumerated in the
README [1] and the switching to the CMake build system
These can vary from system to system and distribution, an example of the package listing for
a recent Ubuntu release is:
  cmake gcc g++ libcurl4-openssl-dev libleveldb-dev libleveldb1v5 uuid-dev uuid libboost-all-dev
libssl-dev doxygen

Once the required environment is established, a build with testing and linting can be performed

  cd nifi-minifi-cpp-0.2.0-source
  mkdir build
  cd build
  cmake ..
  make package
  make test
  make linter

# Verify the contents contain a good README, NOTICE, and LICENSE.

# Verify the git commit ID is correct

# Verify the RC was branched off the correct git commit ID

# Look at the resulting convenience assembly (nifi-minifi-cpp-0.2.0-bin.tar.gz) found in your
build directory

# Make sure the README, NOTICE, and LICENSE are present and correct

# Run the resulting convenience binary and make sure it works as expected

Be mindful of caveats for this initial release, listed in the README.

For some additional assistance, a package with configuration files for both a MiNiFI instance
and a NiFi instance available at
The provided sample configuration bundle assumes that NiFi is configured to listen on port
8081 and has 10001 configured for Site to Site's nifi.remote.input.socket.port.

# Send a response to the vote thread indicating a +1, 0, -1 based on your findings.

Thank you for your time and effort to validate the release!
