      Description

      As a WT developer, I want to be able to compile the wiredtiger library target (libwiredtiger[.a,.so]) using CMake.

      Definition of done:

      • Can invoke CMake in the wiredtiger repository. This should be able to successfully configure/generate a Ninja build on:
        • Linux/Darwin environments
        • For supported architectures: X86_64
        • For supported compilers: GCC & Clang
      • Supports static and shared library builds
      • Supports the different extension configurations (e.g  compressors)
      • Working ninja build that successfully creates a libwiredtiger[.a,.so] file
      • Working libwiredtiger[.a,.so] file e.g. can link against examples and runs as expected (C, CPP and API tests coming in later task)
      • Support for installation target (e.g 'make install' equivalent)
      • Initial documentation on how to build library with CMake (e.g. README)
      • Autoconf/Libtool build still works as expected (should co-exist in tree)

       

      How to do?

      Implement a series of CMake scripts that can configure/build/compile the wiredtiger library for our supported POSIX variants (initially POSIX; with Window support coming in a later task).

      Sample CMake spike was introduced in WT-6535 (for inspiration).
