Building on UNIX
The following build instructions are for the Linux/UNIX/Mac OS X
operating systems as well as for Cygwin and MinGW on Windows.
The standard autotools-based build system is used on these platforms.
After unpacking the source code archive, change to the libodb-qt
package directory (referred to as libodb-qt/ from now on) and run
the configure script:
To see the available configuration options run configure with --help:
The configure script expects the libodb headers and libraries to be
installed in a directory where the C++ compiler and linker will search
for them by default (normally /usr and /usr/local). For Qt, the configure
script uses the pkg-config utility to discover the locations of the Qt
headers and libraries.
If the above methods to locate libodb and Qt are not usable for your
setup, you can use the CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS configure variables to
specify their locations, for example:
./configure CPPFLAGS=-I/opt/libodb/include LDFLAGS=-L/opt/libodb/lib
If libodb is not installed and you would like to use its build directory
instead, you can use the --with-libodb configure options to specify its
location, for example:
As another example, the following configure command only builds shared
libraries, uses the specified C++ compiler, and compiles with optimization
and without debug information:
./configure --disable-static CXX=g++-4.5 CXXFLAGS=-O3
Note that if you are using Qt5 and building a static library, then you
may have to manually add the -fPIC C++ compiler flag to satisfy the Qt5
requirements, for example:
./configure CXXFLAGS="-fPIC -O3"
Once configuration is complete, run make to build libodb-qt:
Once the build is completed successfully, you can install the libodb-qt
headers and libraries using the install target (you may need to do this
step as root depending on the installation directory):
Building on Windows
The following build instructions are for Windows using Microsoft Visual
Studio. If you would like to build libodb-qt with GCC either using
Cygwin or MinGW, refer to the "Building on UNIX" section above.
The standard Visual Studio project and solution files are used on this
platform. The provided project files expect the libodb and Qt header
and import library directories to be in the VC++ Directories Include and
Library search lists. For libodb, see the INSTALL file in the package
directory for more information on how to setup the VC++ Directories. For
Qt, refer to the Qt documentation.
To build libodb-qt, unpack the source code archive and open the
libodb-qt-vc<N>.sln file located in the libodb-qt package directory
(referred to as libodb-qt\ from now on). Here <N> is the version of
Visual Studio that you are using. Once the solution is open, select the
desired build configuration (Debug or Release) and platform (Win32 or
x64) and build the solution.
The resulting 32-bit DLLs and import libraries are placed into the
libodb-qt\bin\ and libodb-qt\lib\ directories, respectively. Similarly,
the 64-bit DLLs and import libraries are placed into libodb-qt\bin64\ and
libodb-qt\lib64\. The Release versions of the import libraries are named
odb-qt.lib and the Debug versions are named odb-qt-d.lib.
To configure Visual Studio to automatically locate the libodb-qt headers,
DLLs, and import libraries, add the following paths to your VC++
