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:
MySQL NDB Cluster 8.1 is built from the MySQL Server 8.1 sources, available from the MySQL downloads page at https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/. The archived source file should have a name similar to
mysql-8.1.0.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_NDBoption in addition to any other build options you wish to use with CMake.
WITH_NDBCLUSTERis also supported for backwards compatibility, but is deprecated and subject to future removal.
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 CMake Options for Compiling NDB Cluster.
Once the build process is complete, you can create a Zip archive
containing the compiled binaries;
Section 2.8.4, “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
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
