MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Compiling and Installing NDB Cluster from Source on Windows

22.2.3.2 Compiling and Installing NDB Cluster from Source on Windows

Oracle provides precompiled NDB Cluster binaries for Windows which should be adequate for most users. However, if you wish, it is also possible to compile NDB Cluster for Windows from source code. The procedure for doing this is almost identical to the procedure used to compile the standard MySQL Server binaries for Windows, and uses the same tools. However, there are two major differences:

  • Building MySQL NDB Cluster 8.0 requires using the MySQL Server 8.0 sources. These are available from the MySQL downloads page at https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/. The archived source file should have a name similar to mysql-8.0.19.tar.gz. You can also obtain the sources from GitHub at https://github.com/mysql/mysql-server.

  • You must configure the build using the WITH_NDBCLUSTER option in addition to any other build options you wish to use with CMake. WITH_NDBCLUSTER_STORAGE_ENGINE and WITH_PLUGIN_NDBCLUSTER are supported as aliases for WITH_NDBCLUSTER, and work in exactly the same way.

Important

The WITH_NDB_JAVA option is enabled by default. This means that, by default, if CMake cannot find the location of Java on your system, the configuration process fails; if you do not wish to enable Java and ClusterJ support, you must indicate this explicitly by configuring the build using -DWITH_NDB_JAVA=OFF. (Bug #12379735) Use WITH_CLASSPATH to provide the Java classpath if needed.

For more information about CMake options specific to building NDB Cluster, see Options for Compiling NDB Cluster.

Once the build process is complete, you can create a Zip archive containing the compiled binaries; Section 2.9.4, “Installing MySQL Using a Standard Source Distribution” provides the commands needed to perform this task on Windows systems. The NDB Cluster binaries can be found in the bin directory of the resulting archive, which is equivalent to the no-install archive, and which can be installed and configured in the same manner. For more information, see Section 22.2.3.1, “Installing NDB Cluster on Windows from a Binary Release”.
