I´m trying to get everything to work with the OpenSDK but I got building failed when running “mvn openmrs-sdk:setup” in cmd. I have the latest version of MySQL installed on my computer and read that MySQL 5.6 is needed, but I it doesn´t seem to work with Windows 10 as I have.
Should it work for MySQL later than 5.6 or do I need to install Docker?
@rakkila , MySQL 5.6 (community) Server requires the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package to run on Windows platforms. So you should make sure the package has been installed on your computer before installing the server. The package is available at this link
It’s probably worth your time to install docker, and run mysql that way. Basically this lets you can easily run (and then destroy) any version of any database, or most other software. As a developer that’s great.
Personally I think that running mysql in docker is easier than running it on a VM. (Building things in docker might be a bit harder, but you’d really just be running a one-line command to run an existing image.)
If you cannot log into mysql via the command line, you’re going to have to resolve that problem first. The solution to that will probably allow OpenMRS to connect to it also.
