Example service

The example service is for showing developers techniques used for building a service. It shows how to run long running jobs asynchronously and how to access and query from multiple requests and processes.


To build this service, you need the grassroots core and grassroots build config installed and configured.

The files to build the SamTools service are in the build/<platform> directory.


If you enter this directory

cd build/linux

you can then build the service by typing

make all

and then

make install

to install the service into the Grassroots system where it will be available for use immediately.
