AW: Making the Windows Build Easier

Berts SharpSVN build also includes a way to pull all the dependencies, using msbuild.

However, it does not work with the express editions yet, AFAICS, so your script clearly has at least one advantage. :-)

Will it work using the VS 2010 command prompt?

> bdb
> zlib
> pcre
> httpd
> apr
> apr-util
> apr-iconv
> sqlite-amalgamation
> serf

> a) Pick a location to do the build and make a directory to build the

> the script at
> http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/tools/dev/build-svn-
> deps-win.pl
> and put it in this directory. Open the script in a text editor and make
> sure you install the few dependencies you'll need (Perl, Python, 7-Zip
> and CMake). Python actually may not be needed for this but it's needed
> for the Subversion build itself. If presented the option to add the
> commands to your path accept it (Python and Perl will do this by default,
> CMake you have to explicitly decide to do this). 7-zip doesn't have one
> so make a note of where you installed it for later.
> Once you have the dependencies downloaded open the "VS2012 x86 Native
> Tools Command Prompt" (usually found in the Visual Studio Tools group).
> cd to your directory and run build-svn-deps-win.pl. If 7z.exe is not in
> "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" you can override this by passing
> "SEVEN_ZIP=C:\Path\To\7z.exe" to the script. The script will then
> download and build the dependencies for you. For me on my VM setup it
> takes about 45 minutes for this to run.
> b) Download http://ben.reser.org/svn-windows-deps/svn-trunk-deps-win32-
> release-20130413.7z
> and extract it. You can rename the folder but it should be named svn-
> trunk-deps. In my case I put it in C:\Users\breser\svn-trunk-deps. The
> file is 116MB and it's compressed with 7-zip (sorry but it was less than
> half the size using 7-zip over normal zip). You'll need at least Python
> which you can find a URL to at the top of the build-svn-deps-win.pl
> script in the svn-trunk-deps.
> You may need Perl but I'm not sure, I had it on my setup since I was
> originally trying to do step a with Express. You won't need CMake for
> sure though. There is a GPG signature of the file for the appropriately
> cautious:
> http://ben.reser.org/svn-windows-deps/svn-trunk-deps-win32-release-
> 20130413.7z.asc
> 2) Get Subversion's source. At this point I haven't tested this with
> anything other than trunk, so you'll need a Subversion client to do a
> checkout.
> 3) Configure Subversion. In the VS2012 Command Prompt cd into the
> Subversion source you checked out and run the following (adjusting the
> paths so that C:\Users\breser\svn-trunk-deps is wherever you put the
> dependencies:
> gen-make.py -t vcproj --vsnet-version=2012 --with-berkeley-
> db=c:\Users\breser\svn-trunk-deps
> --with-httpd=c:\Users\breser\svn-trunk-deps\build\httpd
> --with-serf=c:\Users\breser\svn-trunk-deps\serf
> --with-sqlite=c:\Users\breser\svn-trunk-deps\sqlite-amalgamation
> --with-zlib=c:\Users\breser\svn-trunk-deps\build\httpd\srclib\zlib
> --with-openssl=c:\Users\breser\svn-trunk-deps\build\httpd\srclib\openssl
> 4) Build Subversion. Once that finishes run the following in the came
> command prompt:
> msbuild subversion_vcnet.sln /t:__ALL_TESTS__ /p:Configuration=Release
> 5) Test Subversion.
> Before testing Subversion you need to set the PATH to include the bin
> dir in the deps directory (otherwise tests will fail due to missing
> libapriconv-1.dll):
> set PATH=c:\Users\breser\svn-trunk-deps\bin;%PATH%
> The following command can be used to test Subversion with ra_local:
> win-tests.py --release --parallel
> The following command can test it with ra_serf (and will start httpd for
> you):
> win-tests.py --release --httpd-dir=C:\Users\breser\svn-trunk-deps --
> httpd-daemon [For some reason for me ra_serf fails with parallel, which
> speeds up the tests]
> The following command can test it with ra_svn (and will start svnserve
> for you):
> win-tests.py --release --parallel --url=svn://localhost
