This page describes how to build the Kaa server from the source code available on GitHub.
Before building the Kaa server from source, ensure that Oracle JDK 7 and Apache Maven are installed on your machine.
It is allowed to use any Git client to fetch the Kaa source code from the repository.
Set up your Git configuration (at least the username and email) and download Kaa repository as follows:
Building Kaa with default Java endpoint SDK
To build the Kaa server with the default Java endpoint SDK into Debian/RPM packages, execute the following command.
The Debian build will work correctly on both Linux and Windows operation systems, while the RPM build will work only on Linux operated machines with the RPM tool installed.
For the mvn command, the build number and git commit variables are set to emulate Jenkins build variables that are substituted automatically on the build machine.
After the required components are installed, you can build the C/C++ endpoint SDK and all server components by executing the following command.
|build-rpm||As implied in the profile name, it will force to generate .rpm packages. This is useful if you are going to install Kaa on .rpm based Linux distribution (Red Hat Linux, Oracle Linux, etc.)|
|cassandra-dao||Forces Kaa to use Cassandra NoSQL storage. If none is set MongoDB used by default.|
|mongo-dao||Forces Kaa to use MongoDB NoSQL storage. Enabled by default.|
|compile-gwt||Compiles administration user interface. Can be skipped during regular builds.|
|compile-client-c||Compiles C endpoint. Note, -DskipTests option disables only Java tests. If you want disable C tests too, you should manually comment out test section in client build script.|
|compile-client-cpp||Compiles C++ endpoint. Note, -DskipTests option disables only Java tests. If you want disable C++ tests too, you should manually comment out test section in client build script.|
|compile-thrift||Forces Thrift compiler to generate code from thrift files.|
Compiles Cassandra log appender.
|cdap||Compiles CDAP log appender.|
|couchbase||Compiles Couchbase log appender.|
|oracle-nosql||Compiles Oracle NoSQL log appender.|
|jenkins||Forces Kaa to execute integration tests.|
The following script can be used to start all the Kaa components.
A similar script, as shown in the following example, can be used to restart or stop all the components.
