FitNesse Database Plugin

by Stephen Starkey

This plugin provides a replacement to the standard file system back-end to FitNesse. Instead of storing your Wiki pages in a standard hierarchical file system structure, they are stored in a database schema. This makes searching, refactoring, etc. much faster, as databases are optimized for such things.

Please read this file fully before executing any steps. It contains forward references which, when executed out of order, will cause much disappointment in the reader.

EXTENSIBLE INSTALLATION

* Identify the location of your FitNesse installation. We refer to this location as FITNESSE_ROOT
* Download your favorite JDBC Driver and place it in FITNESSE_ROOT
* Edit plugins.properties (presume I have prefixed property names with com.xb.fitnesse.db):
* Create a "plugin" for your database driver:
* In the plugins directory create a .plugin and .plugin_bat file just like fitnesse_db.plugin, etc
* Change the directory structure to add the database driver to the classpath instead
