1. Installation

1. Download

You can download SQLG2 binaries and sources at http://sourceforge.net/projects/sqlg2.

2. How to build

To build SQLG2 from sources you need:

Run ANT on the root build.xml file to build SQLG2 libraries.

3. How to run examples

Examples are located at doc/examples directory (db.properties file is placed there too). To run examples, you need:

First, you need to configure build environment for your database. You may change following configuration parameters:

DB property Where to change Default value
JDBC driver class name db.properties file - jdbc.driver propertyDefaults to oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver
JDBC driver library path db.properties file - jdbc.lib property; should point to jar or zip file. It should be written correctly in the syntax of property files - on Windows systems slashes have to be written forward or as double backslashes.You have to change it
SQLG setup for specific database db.properties file - sqlg.dbclass propertyDefaults to Oracle database (sqlg2.db.OracleDBSpecific class)
JDBC URL db.properties file - jdbc.url property (it is read in build.xml and passed as a program argument when running example)You have to change it
User login db.properties file - db.username and db.password propertiesDefaults to user sqlg2 with password sqlg2. You can either create such user or change it in db.properties file.

After you have set up database properties, you can run examples. Go to example directory (doc/examples/example1 for instance). The example may have some specific requirements on schema or additional libraries, so read README file for that example and create all necessary schema objects or install required libraries. Then run example as written in README.
