xQTL workbench

Latest release WORKING

You will need: Ant, Subversion, Java.

Create a directory somewhere to work in, e.g. /Users/harry/xqtl, and cd to there. Run these commands:

svn co http://www.molgenis.org/svn/molgenis/trunk/ molgenis
svn co http://www.molgenis.org/svn/molgenis_apps/trunk/ molgenis_apps
ant -f molgenis_apps/xqtl_dev.xml make_run

By the way, Ant can be made faster by giving it more memory. Use e.g. export ANT_OPTS=-Xmx512m
The application is now running at: http://localhost:8080/molgenis_apps
Then login with user/pw: admin / admin

You are now done setting up :)
PLEASE NOTICE: For subsequent starts of the application, use:

ant -f molgenis_apps/xqtl_dev.xml

To avoid regeneration and recompilation. It calls the default target 'run'. Things you can do next are..

  • Change the admin password
  • Make users and put them in the group 'biologist' or 'bioinformatician'
  • Import new data
  • Explore existing data
  • Install R packages and run QTL mapping locally
  • Add a new analysis R script
  • Run an analysis on the cluster
  • etcetera!

Development & Deployment

Go into the application source for convenient access to the Ant scripts:
cd molgenis_apps

Run the application on a specified port, and only this port:
ant -f xqtl_dev.xml runOn -Dport=9000

Update the application:
svn update molgenis molgenis_apps
Followed by at least recompilation. This is the 'fast but may fail' option.
ant -f xqtl_dev.xml recompile
For some updates you must remake the application, which includes MOLGENIS generation and recompilation. This is the 'safe but slow' option.
ant -f xqtl_dev.xml clean_make

You can run the data- and webtest yourself to find out if your version is stable:
ant -f xqtl_dev.xml test
ant -f xqtl_selenium.xml webtest (if this fails: try running as root due to permissions)

You can remove all generated and compiled code:
ant -f xqtl_dev.xml clean
Followed by e.g. a make:
ant -f xqtl_dev.xml make
And even delete the HSQL database:
ant -f xqtl_dev.xml deletedb

For further details you can consult the source of the various scripts: development, webtesting, jarbuilding.
