Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been seriously following the development of PostgreSQL for seven years now. I have collected every book on it since 2002 and I am using it currently on a stock price tracking program. PostgreSQL continues to advance its design capabilities year by year. It has the most advanced data types of all of the top relational databases and it's performance is considerable in a high demand environment. I do admit that its is a pleasure to know that I won't have to pay tens of thousands of dollars to get experience designing with the Datacenter version. This book is volume 2 of 6 and covers most internal and external programming methods for this database.

My primary interest in this database is to support my programming efforts for my clients. I also design in SQL Server( GenturaDX ), MySQL( Connelly & Assoc. ), Oracle( Aurora Biosciences ), and SQLite 3( TuneUp Media ). So, I have some experience in comparing database designs. My favorite two databases are PostgreSQL and SQL Server. PostgreSQL gives me the highest convenience in modeling my data tables using data types and arrays that match my exterior software objects. This reduces my design and testing time and lets my software remain clean and effective. SQL Server is more awkward to use in developing data records that match my DTOs and software object contents, but it makes up for it considerably by giving me more convenience with ADO and LINQ constructions. There are many books written for SQL Server, but very few for PostgreSQL. So, I want to congratulate the publisher for providing this work because it is the primary method for most programmers to gain in depth knowledge about this database and to work out thorny problems in using this database in their programs.
