Peter, 

Instead of Java for the front end try using PHP or Python. They tie in
better with Postgresql. The book you have is good enough to develop
databases. I have used it for a contract that I was working on for the
last year.

Hari

Hello

I currently own a copy of "PostgreSQL Developer's Handbook" by Geshwinde

and Schonig, 2002. Would this still be good enough to start making 
databases in the current version of PostgreSQL? I noticed it talks about

Redhat 7.1. I have Windows XP Pro, Windows 98SE and a copy of Fedora 
Core 3 (as well as Knoppix 3.4 and a copy of Xandros Desktop OS Version 
2 Value Pack that I won as a door prize at my local Linux Users Group).

I'm trying to start up a web development business using JSP 2 and maybe 
moving onto desktop apps in Java later on. I'm thinking of developing in

Windows but if Linux proves more stable I'd be tempted to develop in 
that. I'm currently trying out Netbeans 4.0 though I was using Eclipse 
3.0 until recently.

I've had some small experience with mysql but I've read that PostgreSQL 
doesn't buckle under high loads and that it supports referential
integrity.

Thanks

Peter Mount
