Loading data into PostgreSQL

PostgreSQL is one of the easiest databases to get data into and out of. In addition there are tons of free useful data sources to munch on. We'll cover various ways of loading various kinds of data into PostgreSQL. Data formats will include other postgres data, delimited, fixed width, spreadsheets, other relational databases, and other formats (including spatial formats) you may come across, and even Web services. We'll demonstrate loading data using SQL, psql \copy,...

In this talk, we describe a solution for high-level information exchange between PostgreSQL database and Java...

The user experience I settled on makes it easy to present exactly the data you want, not the entire object. Unlike most postgres extensions, the...
