Agile OODT is a new version of Object Oriented Data Technology. It improves upon the previous version by being easier to develop, maintain, and extend; simpler to integrate by; and faster to use.
What follows are the installation instructions for Agile OODT.
As a user with administrative privileges, run either:
depending on what’s available on your system. You’re done!
Agile OODT requires the Python programming language. We recommend version 2.4 or later. As of this writing, 2.7 is the latest stable version. If Python is not yet installed on your system, you can find binary and and source distributions from the Python website.
To test if a correct version of Python is available on your system, run:
You should see output similar to:
indicating the version of Python installed. You may then proceed to install Agile OODT.
By far the easiest, recommended, and encouraged way to install Agile OODT is either with Pip or EasyInstall. If your Python installation has either of these installers available to it, then one command is all you need to run in order to download, build, install, and generate command-line tools all in one go for all users on your system. For Pip users, it’s:
And for EasyInstall users, it’s:
Be sure to run that command as an administrative user. For example, on Mac OS X and other Unix systems, you might need to run either of:
sudo pip oodt sudo easy_install oodt
Installing From Source
If neither Pip nor EasyInstall are available, you can still make a proper installation of Agile OODT by building it from its source code. Just follow these instructions:
- Download the Agile OODT source distribution and extract the source archive. The source distribution is packaged as a gzip’d tar archive.
- Change the current working directory to the newly extracted directory.
- As an administrative user, run: python setup.py install
