MongoDB Notes

Some notes I took as I went through trying to compile the C++ driver for mongodb under win32.

  • Hit up MongoDB C++ Page
    • http://www.mongodb.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=133409
  • Downloaded driver linked from Driver Download Page & some other prerequisites
    • http://downloads.mongodb.org/cxx-driver/mongodb-linux-x86_64-v2.0-latest.tgz
    • http://www.mongodb.org/download/attachments/12157032/boost_1_42_vs2010_partial_prebuilt.7z
  • Went to C++ Driver Compiling and Linking and scrolled down to Windows
    • http://www.mongodb.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=21266598
  • Hrm. I’d rather not have to mess with scons … so how do I build the lib?
  • WTF? I want to try including client/mongo_client_lib.cpp in my project but IT’S NOT IN THE FRAKING ARCHIVE!
  • OK. Fine. Let’s fire up git and clone the full git source.
  • Ahh…. ok, found mongo_client_lib.cpp. Why the hell even bother putting up the tar ball?
  • Loaded simple_client_demo into visual studio.
  • Boost missing. Ok .. Let’s set up project to point to proper includes and precompiled libraries
  • Holy shit that compiled.
  • Fired up MongoDB Shell and created a collection.
  • Ran through the debugger. Everything works, but how come code references test.foo but in the shell it shows name is just ‘foo?
  • Apparently didn’t need perl regex files? (referenced elsewhere)
  • bo and bob? really?! (in bson seralization class)
