Building the Bruce replication system from the source code is relatively= simple. However, there are a few prerequisites you'll need to take care of= before you start. In many cases, the versions specified are guidelines. Th= ey are what we are using in development, and other versions of a given tool= may work just fine.=20
The core developers for Bruce use Macbook Pros with 2GB RAM and Mac OSX = 10.4 for development. Continuous integration builds happen on a Linux box (= need hardware and OS info here). Performance testing happens on Fedora Core= 7 with both PostgreSQL 8.1 and 8.2 within a single cluster.=20
You'll probably do fine with a 1.6.x version, but we've developed the sy= stem using 1.7, so it's up to you. Get it from http://ant.apache.org=20
We use annotations and other 1.5 features. There's no getting around thi= s one. Download from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/. If you = use Java 6, please let us know how it goes by sending a message to the dev@= bruce.codehaus.org.=20
Bruce uses a C-based PostgreSQL extension. You'll need to compile and in= stall this. In our development environments we use GCC version 4.0.1 and GN= U Make version 3.8.=20
This one is important. When the unit and acceptance tests run as a part = of the build, the bruce extension is compiled and installed. You will need = to have read/write access to the PostgreSQL lib directory. We have found th= at, for development purposes, it's best to have a personal installation of = PostgreSQL in your home directory. The postgres.properties file in the root= directory of the source tree contains paths and other configurable propert= ies so that you can customize your build to use a custom PostgreSQL install= location. Just remember - wherever it's installed, you'll need to have rea= d and write access to the lib directory!=20
We have developed and tested Bruce on both PostgreSQL 8.1 and 8.2 lines.= Other, earlier versions are less likely to succeed, but please report any = success or failures you have if you attempt to build and run against a diff= erent version.
