Some built-in macros inside CMakeSettings.json:

  • ${workspaceRoot} – provides the full path to the workspace folder
  • ${workspaceHash} – hash of workspace location; useful for creating a unique identifier for the current workspace (e.g. to use in folder paths)
  • ${projectFile} – the full path for the root CMakeLists.txt
  • ${projectDir} – the full path to the folder of the root CMakeLists.txt file
  • ${thisFile} – the full path to the CMakeSettings.json file
  • ${name} – the name of the configuration
  • ${generator} – the name of the CMake generator used in this configuration

http://archive.apache.org/dist/httpd/binaries/win32/httpd-2.2.25-win32-x86-openssl-0.9.8y.msi

Install Axis2/C

  1. Extract the binary distribution to a folder of your choice.(example: C:\axis2c-bin-1.6.0-win32)
  2. Copy the iconv.dll, libxml2.dll and zlib1.dll to C:\axis2c-bin-1.6.0-win32\lib
  3. Set the variable AXIS2C_HOME to the deploy folder (C:\axis2c-bin-1.6.0-win32)
  4. Add the path to lib directory to the PATH variable (%AXIS2C_HOME%\lib)

Install Apache 2.2

  1. Copy C:\axis2c-bin-1.6.0-win32\lib\mod_axis2.dll C:\Apache22\modules\mod_axis2.so
  2. Edit the Apache2’s configuration file (generally httpd.conf) and add the following directives
  3. LoadModule axis2_module modules/mod_axis2.so
    Axis2RepoPath C:/axis2c-bin-1.6.0-win32
    Axis2LogFile C:/axis2c-bin-1.6.0-win32/logs
    Axis2MaxLogFileSize 40
    Axis2LogLevel warn
  4. Restart apache2 and test whether mod_axis2 module is loaded by typing the URL http://localhost/axis2/services in your Web browser
