Installing the Qualitas Corpus

The installation process is slightly different, depending on whether the distribution is on writable or non-writable media.

If the distribution is a tar or zip file, the simplest method is to unpack it in the desired destination directory for the corpus, and execute the perl script install.pl from within the bin directory (see the distribution structure):

./install.pl

Alternatively, it is possible to unpack the corpus to any directory, but this method will cause the corpus to make an entire copy of itself to the destination, which may be time consuming.

./install.pl /tmp

SYNOPSIS

./install.pl [-r] [-s system1[,system2,...]] [-v sysver1[,sysver2,...]] [destination]

./install.pl -l [system1[,system2,...]]

DESCRIPTION
Unpack the corpus to <destination>. If <destination> is not specified, the default behaviour is to unpack in place.
-h
Display usage instructions.
-r
Unpack only relevant jar files and sources, ignoring third party content and other miscellaneous files.
-s
Unpack only the specified comma-separated list of systems. If not installing in place, only these systems will be copied. If installing in place, all other systems will be left packed.
-v
Unpack only the specified comma-separated list of versions. If not installing in place, only these versions will be copied. If installing in place, all other systems and versions will be left packed.
-l
List all available systems if no systems are provided, otherwise list all available versions of the specified comma-separated list of systems.
 
If both -s and -v are omitted, all systems will be installed.
If no destination is provided, all files will be unpacked in place.
EXAMPLES
To unpack the corpus in place:

./install.pl

To unpack the corpus into the /tmp directory:

./install.pl /tmp

To unpack only the system "eclipse_SDK" in place:

./install.pl -s eclipse_SDK

To unpack only the latest version of the system "eclipse_SDK" in place:

./install.pl -v eclipse_SDK-3.6

To view all available versions of the system "eclipse_SDK":

./install.pl -l eclipse_SDK

Important Note

Due to licensing restrictions the JRE binaries and source is not in this distribution. In order to include the JRE in a given installation, it must be downloaded directly from Oracle and installed manually. Instructions are given in the relevant directory within Systems.
