Get to grips with the extension framework of PostgreSQL using Packt's new Book and eBook

June 2013 | Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce the release of PostgreSQL Server Programming, a step-by-step tutorial with plenty of tips and tricks to extend PostgreSQL and integrate the database layer into a development framework. The book is out now and available from Packt in print and all the popular eBook formats.

PostgreSQL is capable of providing readers with all the options they have in their favorite development language and then extending them right onto the database server. With this knowledge, they will be able to respond to the current demand for advanced PostgreSQL skills in a lucrative and booming market.

PostgreSQL Server Programming will show users why PostgreSQL is so much more than a database server. In fact, it could even be said to be an application development framework, with the added bonuses of transaction support, massive data storage, journaling, recovery, and a host of other features that the PostgreSQL engine provides.

This book will teach readers the basics of a PostgreSQL function, and how to write them in languages other than the built-in PL/PgSQL. It will also show them how to create libraries of useful code, group them into even more useful components, and thendistribute them to the community. Readers will learn how to extract data from a multitude of foreign data sources, and then extend PostgreSQL to do it natively. All of this will be done efficiently and reliably in a nifty debugging interface.

PostgreSQL Server Programming is aimed at moderate to advanced PostgreSQL database professionals. To get the most out of this book, general experience in writing SQL is recommended, as well as a basic understanding of query tuning, and some coding experience in a language of the reader's choice. More information about the book can be found on the Packt book web-page.
