Build Instructions

BDE uses a build system based on cmake. The build system is located in the BDE tools repository (see Documentation Links).

Prerequisites

The BDE CMake build system requires the following software to be preinstalled and configured on the system:

Note that python is used by the build helpers bde_build_env.py and cmake_build.py, but is not strictly needed to build BDE. See the more complete build instructions linked below for more detail.

Build Instructions (Open Source)

Please see the more complete build instructions for open source users.

The following commands can be used to configure and build the BDE repository:

  1. Clone the bde-tools and bde repositories and add bde-tools to your PATH:

    $ git clone https://github.com/bloomberg/bde-tools.git
    $ export PATH=$PWD/bde-tools/bin:$PATH      # add bde-tools to the 'PATH'
    $ git clone https://github.com/bloomberg/bde.git
    $ cd bde
    
  2. From the root of this source repository, run:

   $ export BDE_CMAKE_BUILD_DIR=$PWD/_build   # configure the build directory
   $ cmake_build.py configure -u dbg_exc_mt_64_cpp14
  1. To build the libraries, but not the test drivers, run:
   $ cmake_build.py build

To also build the test drivers, run:

   $ cmake_build.py build --test build

To build and run the test drivers, run:

   $ cmake_build.py build --test run

Build Instructions (Bloomberg LP)

Please see the more complete build instructions for Bloomberg LP users.

The following commands can be used to configure and build the BDE repository:

    $ git clone bbgithub:bde/bde
    $ cd bde
    
  2. From the root of this source repository, run:

   $ export BDE_CMAKE_BUILD_DIR=$PWD/_build   # configure the build directory
