To use Java-stored functions/procedures in CUBRID, you must have JRE (Java Runtime Environment) 1.5 or better installed in the environment where the CUBRID server is installed. You can download JRE from the Developer Resources for Java Technology (http://java.sun.com).
If the java_stored_procedure parameter in the CUBRID configuration file (cubrid.conf) is set to yes, CUBRID 64-bit needs a 64-bit Java Runtime Environment, and CUBRID 32-bit needs a 32-bit Java Runtime Environment. For example, when you run CUBRID 64-bit in the system in which a 32-bit JAVA Runtime Environment is installed, the following error may occur.
% cubrid server start demodb
This may take a long time depending on the amount of recovery works to do.
WARNING: Java VM library is not found : /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_15/jre/lib/amd64/server/libjvm.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.
Consequently, calling java stored procedure is not allowed
Execute the following command to check the JRE version if you have it already installed in the system.
% java -version Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_05-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 10.0-b19, mixed mode)
For Windows, CUBRID loads the jvm.dll file to run the Java Virtual Machine. CUBRID first locates the jvm.dll file from the PATH environment variable and then loads it. If it cannot find the file, it uses the Java runtime information registered in the system registry.
You can configure the JAVA_HOME environment variable and add the directory in which the Java executable file is located to Path, by executing the command as follows: For information on configuring environment variables using GUI, see Setting up the JDBC Environment.
To use other vendor's implementation instead of Sun's Java Virtual Machine, add the path of the jvm.dll file to the PATH variable during the installation.
For Linux/UNIX environment, CUBRID loads the libjvm.so file to run the Java Virtual Machine. CUBRID first locates the libjvm.so file from the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable and then loads it. If it cannot find the file, it uses the JAVA_HOME environment variable. For Linux, glibc version 2.3.4 or higher is supported. The following is an example of configuring the Linux environment variable (e.g., .profile, .cshrc, .bashrc, .bash_profile, etc.).
To use other vendor's implementation instead of Sun's Java Virtual Machine, add the path of the JVM (libjvm.so) to the library path during the installation.
The path of the libjvm.so file can be different depending on the platform. For example, the path is the $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/sparc directory in a SUN Sparc machine.
