License:

Interface:

A powerful, open source relational database system. It has more than 15 years of active development and a proven architecture that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, data integrity, and correctness.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Manual installation

Program is distributed as ZIP package: download to temporary directory and run INSTALL.EXE; choose preferred unit letter but do not change directory structure. Reboot. Run \PGSQL\BIN\INITDB.CMD script. For default comes created the directory \PGSQLDATA, used to contain DB. Don't get scared if during the init the available space on your HD is reduced of about 20 Mb: at the end it comes you refunded (more or less!).
Start server with "Postgres SQL Server 7.1.3" object. For further informations, look at readme.os2.en. See below for download link(s).

You can install the prerequisites with rpm running the following string in a command line:

yum install libc libcx libgcc1 libssp libstdc++6 libstdc++ libsupc++6 libsupc++ libgcc-fwd emxrt

Following ones are the download links for manual installation:

PostgreSQL Server v. 9.6.6 (3/1/2018, Paul Smedley (Smedles)) Readme/What's new
Changes in this release: 1) Updated to v9.3.17 source 2) Updated to libc066 3) minimal testing - pg_ctl doesn't seem to work 4) Rebuilt with latest pthreads and libcx from rpm 5) Updated to v9.4.15 source 5) Updated to v9.5.10 source 6) Updated to v9.6.6 source 7) Attempt to fix problem with bootstrap on machines without a functional klibc user manager Known Issues: - running the postgresql initialisation sometimes crashes at "running bootstrap script" if virtualaddress limit is too large or too small. A value of 2048 appears to work well here.

PostgresSQL JDBC Support (3/7/2007) Readme/What's new
PostgresSQL JDBC Support. USING THE DRIVER To use the driver, you must introduce it to JDBC. Again, there's two ways of doing this: 1: Hardcoded. This method hardcodes your driver into your application/applet. You introduce the driver using the following snippet of code: try { Class.forName("org.postgresql.Driver"); } catch(Exception e) { // your error handling code goes here } Remember, this method restricts your code to just the postgresql database. However, this is how most people load the driver. 2: Parameters This method specifies the driver from the command line. When running the application, you specify the driver using the option: -Djdbc.drivers=org.postgresql.Driver eg: This is an example of running one of my other projects with the driver: java -Djdbc.drivers=org.postgresql.Driver uk.org.retep.finder.Main note: This method only works with Applications (not for Applets). However, the application is not tied to one driver, so if you needed to switch databases (why I don't know ;-) ), you don't need to recompile the application (as long as you havent hardcoded the url's). --------------------------------------------------------------------------- JDBC URL syntax The driver recognises JDBC URL's of the form: jdbc:postgresql:database jdbc:postgresql://host/database jdbc:postgresql://host:port/database Also, you can supply both username and passwords as arguments, by appending them to the URL. eg: jdbc:postgresql:database?user=me jdbc:postgresql:database?user=me&password=mypass --------------------------------------------------------------------------- That's the basics related to this driver. You'll need to read the JDBC Docs on how to use it. However, there are some examples included in the example directory. To build, type: make examples To run them, they follow the same syntax. For example, the basic example shows how to insert data, and perform queries: java example.basic jdbc:postgresql:test user password --------------------------------------------------------------------------- POSTGRESQL SPECIFICS -------------------- Large Objects: A "feature" of PostgreSQL is that access to LargeObjects is only permitted within a Transaction. Because of this, any use of LargeObjects (also known as Blobs) requires that the Connection.setAutoCommit() method be called disabling the autocommit feature. For example: Connection db; // open the connection here db.setAutoCommit(false); // Turn off AutoCommit ------------------ Large Object API Most of the time, you can use the getBytes()/setBytes() methods to read and write small Large Objects. However, PostgreSQL's own internal api's are available. These allow you to access the object as if it was a file. The first thing you need to do is to open the LargeObjectManager. This class handles the opening of existing objects, and creating new ones. To do this, you use the following line of code: LargeObjectManager lobj; lobj = ((org.postgresql.Connection)db).getLargeObjectAPI(); where db is a reference to an open Connection object. Once that is done, you can use the API for the lifetime of that Connection. To create an object, you call the create() method. This takes an argument with the file modes you intend to use. The following line is normally sufficient: int oid = lobj.create(LargeObjectManager.READ|LargeObjectManager.WRITE); Here, lobj is the LargeObjectManager we have opened earlier, and oid is the Large Object's oid in the database. To open an existing object, you use the open() method. This takes an oid, and the file permissions. It then returns a LargeObject object. LargeObject obj = lobj.open(oid,LargeObjectManager.WRITE); Once the LargeObject is open, you can call methods to read, write, seek etc. Here's the supported methods: int oid = obj.getOID(); Return the objects oid obj.close(); Close the object byte data[] = obj.read(int len); Read len bytes onj.read(byte data[],int off,int len); Read into data[off] len bytes obj.write(byte data[]); Write the array data obj.write(byte data[],int off,int len); Write len bytes from data[off] obj.seek(int pos,int ref); As fseek in C. obj.seek(int pos); Move to pos (from the begining) int pos = obj.tell(); Returns the current position int size = obj.size(); Returns the objects size Caveat: If you commit(), rollback() a transaction, or turn on autocommit whilst an object is open PostgreSQL will close it. You will need to reopen the object before using it again. Using the existing LargeObject will cause an SQLException to be thrown. ------------------ Date datatype: The driver now issues the "show datestyle;" query when it first connects, so any call to ResultSet.getDate() how returns the correct date. One caveat though: if you change the datestyle from within JDBC, you must also issue the "show datestyle" query. Without this, the driver will not know of the change. ie: Statement s = db.createStatement(); ... s.executeUpdate("set datestyle='european'"); s.executeUpdate("show datestyle"); .. s.close(); Please note: This may change later, so that the driver uses the same format internally (similar to how the ODBC driver works). ------------------ JDBC supports database specific data types using the getObject() call. The following types have their own Java equivalents supplied by the driver: box, circle, line, lseg, path, point, polygon When using the getObject() method on a resultset, it returns a PG_Object, which holds the postgres type, and its value. This object also supports methods to retrive these types. Eg: column 3 contains a point, and rs is the ResultSet: PG_Object o = (PG_Object)rs.getObject(3); PGpoint p = o.getPoint(); System.out.println("point returned x="+p.x+", y="+p.y); Also, when using these classes, their toString() methods return the correct syntax for writing these to the database. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Peter T Mount, December 29 1998 home email: pmount at retep.org.uk http://www.retep.org.uk work email: petermount at it.maidstone.gov.uk or peter at taer.maidstone.gov.uk PS: Please use the home email whenever possible.
