Creating a placement-managed federated database

Printer-friendly version
  1. Verify that a lock server is running on the intended lock-server host for the new federated database.

    For Windows users, learn how to start/stop a server.

    For Mac or Unix users, learn how to start/stop a server.

  2. Verify that your license file is set up

    Learn how to set up a new Objectivity license

  3. Run CreateFd using the Tool Runner Syntax
    • Specify the –fdName option
    • Specify additional options to set nondefault values for the other properties. Include the –licenseFIle option if your license file is in a nondefault location

    C:> objy CreateFd –fdname Example
    Objectivity/DB (TM) Create FD, Version: 11.2.4
    Copyright (c) Objectivity, Inc 2012, 2014. All rights reserved.
    Federated Database successfully created:
      FD Dir Host      : objy556
      FD Dir Path      : C:\Users\jdahmubed
      System DB file   : Example.fdb
      Boot file        : Example.boot
      Lock server host : objy556
  4. For Objectivity/C++ application development, you must explicitly load the application-specific portion of the schema into the newly created federated database. For example, you can perform one of the following:
    • Run ooddlx
    • Import a schema from another federated database
    • Use Objectivity/Assist

    Descriptions of application-defined classes are added automatically by Objectivity for Java applications.
