That is really not correct either.  The FLIR IOC application almost always also depends on other synApps modules (busy, calc, autosave, etc.).  Some are optional, but busy, for example, is not.

Yes, Mark, you are correct, FLIR Camera IOC application needs the busy record. However, this busy dependency will be introduced within "DB record" inside the database and dbd file, not the source codes and compiling process if only we compile the pointGrey. I cannot see any header file dependency upon .d files within the pointGrey. In addition, the version which I am saying is R2-7. Please correct me if I am wrong.

I have to confess one more thing, for the our environment at ESS, we don't need to care about other modules support if they are not dependent upon the source directly when we compile a module. When we start an IOC, we have to define this kind of dependency within startup scripts.

So with your email, I think, Andrew may have the better idea then before.

I would also like to point out that when one runs “make release” in the top-level synApps support/ directory above areaDetector it will correctly update areaDetector/configure/RELEASE_LIBS.local and RELEASE_PRODS.local to use the versions defined in synApps/support/configure/RELEASE

For example here are snippets from areaDetector/configure/RELEASE_LIBS.local and RELEASE_PRODS.local where ASYN, AREA_DETECTOR, and EPICS_BASE are set to nothing:

RELEASE_LIBS.local

::::::::::::::

#RELEASE Location of external products

# Run "gnumake clean uninstall install" in the application

# top directory each time this file is changed.

# If using Debian packages then the following must be done:

#  SUPPORT should be defined to be the root location of any modules which should NOT come from the Debian package.

#  Any modules which should come from the Debian package should be commented out, except for EPICS_BASE.

#  For example to use a newer version of asyn and areaDetector then define ASYN, AREA_DETECTOR, ADCORE,

#  and ADSUPPORT here.  To use the Debian version of asyn then comment out ASYN here.

# If you don't want to install into $(TOP) then

# define INSTALL_LOCATION_APP here

#INSTALL_LOCATION_APP=<fullpathname>

# ASYN is needed for base classes

ASYN=

AREA_DETECTOR=

# ADSupport is needed by ADCore plugins

ADSUPPORT=$(AREA_DETECTOR)/ADSupport

# ADCORE for base classes and plugins

ADCORE=$(AREA_DETECTOR)/ADCore

EPICS_BASE=

…

::::::::::::::

RELEASE_PRODS.local

::::::::::::::

#RELEASE Location of external products

# Run "gnumake clean uninstall install" in the application

# top directory each time this file is changed.

# If using Debian packages then the following must be done:

#  SUPPORT should be defined to be the root location of any modules which should NOT come from the Debian package.

ASYN=

AREA_DETECTOR=

# ADSupport is needed by ADCore plugins

ADSUPPORT=$(AREA_DETECTOR)/ADSupport

# ADCORE for base classes and plugins

ADCORE=$(AREA_DETECTOR)/ADCore

#AUTOSAVE is needed for save_restore

AUTOSAVE=

…

At the top level of synApps/support I then run “make release”.

corvette:~/devel>make release

It then updates RELEASE_LIBS.local and RELEASE_PRODS.local to the versions in use.

RELEASE_LIBS.local

AREA_DETECTOR=$(SUPPORT)/areaDetector-3-7

# ADSupport is needed by ADCore plugins

# ADCORE for base classes and plugins

ADCORE=$(AREA_DETECTOR)/ADCore

EPICS_BASE=/corvette/usr/local/epics-devel/base-7.0.3

AREA_DETECTOR=$(SUPPORT)/areaDetector-3-7

# ADSupport is needed by ADCore plugins

ADSUPPORT=$(AREA_DETECTOR)/ADSupport

# ADCORE for base classes and plugins

ADCORE=$(AREA_DETECTOR)/ADCore

#AUTOSAVE is needed for save_restore

AUTOSAVE=$(SUPPORT)/autosave-5-10

# BUSY is needed for busy record

BUSY=$(SUPPORT)/busy-1-7-2

# CALC is needed for the sseq record that is used for the reset in NDStats.template

# and which is loaded into the example IOCs for general purpose use.

# CALC is also needed for scalcout record that SSCAN uses

CALC=$(SUPPORT)/calc-3-7-3

…

Thus in many cases it is not necessary to edit these files in areaDetector/configure.

Hi Andrew,

I realise there probably aren't many sites out there using the HZB Sumo package <https://goetzpf.bitbucket.io/sumo/>, but has anyone who does use it worked out how to configure and build AreaDetector with it, either as a series of separate modules or as one big module?

Unlike most EPICS modules AreaDetector has multiple kinds of RELEASE files that need to be populated, and a non-trivial configuration process (which is well-documented <https://areadetector.github.io/master/install_guide.html>).

The Sumo tool automates the configuration and building of sets of EPICS modules on demand, but I'm not sure if it can cope with configuring AreaDetector. If someone has succeeded in doing so I would be grateful to hear details or ideas how best to approach it — I haven't tried yet and I will need to do that soon.


     If the Sumo tool does its job well with the most EPICS modules, I think, the tool does the same job on the AreaDetector also. But we may not use the current global configuration files of areadetector with the Sumo tool, because here we (ESS) can build them as individual modules, and combine "necessary components" to build "an Application" and run an IOC without any issues.


     For example, in order to see images from a PointGrey  (FLIR) camera,

     Here (ESS), we define system libraries and ADSupport clearly in terms of OS. And we compile ADSupport as a module, And we compile ADCore which has the maximum configuration options with both dependent libraries (system and ADSupport) together. And we compile ADPointGrey according to ADCore, ADSupport, and system libraries. (Note that the vendor libraries also we have to consider.)

     The full dependent chain for my example (ignore system libraries and vendor lib) is

     EPICS Base < Asyn < ADsupport < ADCore < ADPointGrey < FLIR Camera IOC application

        This is not true, and the following is the correct one.

<pre>
   ```
        *  EPICS Base -> asyn -> ADCore <- ADSupport
                                 |
                                 V
           Vendor Lib -> ADPointGrey -> FLIR Camera IOC application
```
</pre>

      Best,
      Han


     In addition, you also have to consider how you would like to handle all template files and configuration files in the different manners.

     BTW, how Debian-based facilities does handle the areadetector?


     HTH,
     Han
