Arguably the most capable of all the open source databases, PostgreSQL is an object-relational database management system that--until now--lacked comprehensive, easy-to-use documentation. Practical PostgreSQL is a fast-paced guide that shows you how to get PostgreSQL installed, configured, and running. This comprehensive book delves into the many advanced features of the PostgreSQL Application Server, LXP, including the the use of SQL within PostgreSQL, and covers basic PostgreSQL database administration.
product description

CDROMThis comprehensive new volume shows you how to compile PostgreSQL from source, create a database, and configure PostgreSQL to accept client-server connections. It also covers the many advanced features, such as transactions, versioning, replication, and referential integrity that enable developers and DBAs to use PostgreSQL for serious business applications. The thorough introduction to PostgreSQL's PL/pgSQL programming language explains how you can use this very useful but under-documented feature to develop stored procedures and triggers. The book includes a complete command reference, and database administrators will appreciate the chapters on user management, database maintenance, and backup & recovery. With Practical PostgreSQL, you will discover quickly why this open source database is such a great open source alternative to proprietary products from Oracle, IBM, and Microsoft.

Also included is a CD-ROM with Command Prompt's PostgreSQL Application Server, LXP. The CD covers LXP version 0.8.0 and PostgreSQL version 7.1.3.
