#579 closed enhancement (fixed)

infodbtype gs3

Reported by: kjdon Owned by: nobody
Priority: moderate Milestone: 3.06 Release
Component: Collection Building Severity: minor
Keywords: Cc:

Description

Need to support infodbtype in collectionConfig.xml.

Notes from GS2 release notes:

New collection configuration file option: infodbtype. Values include gdbm (the default), gdbm-txtgz, sqlite, mssql. This specifies what database system to use for the collection metadata database. Currently this needs to be added to collect.cfg by hand, as it is not available in GLI yet.

gdbm: the default, and is what has always been used previously. This is not platform dependent.

gdbm-txtgz: A gzipped text version of the database. At runtime, the first time this collection is accessed, it will be unpacked and converted to a GDBM database using txt2db. deprecated.

sqlite: Platform independent database using SQLite. The new dynamic classifiers can be used with this database. Thanks to DL Consulting.

mssql: Windows specific database using MS SQL Server. See http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Using_MSSQL_for_Collection_Database for information about how to set this up. The new dynamic classifiers

can be used with this database. Thanks to DL Consulting.

david added support for jdbm. so presumably he added a infodbtype option to config file???

but anyway, sqlite support is not there yet.
