I'll be happy if I can help you. I test Compiere since june and I asked
compiere what to do in order to port compiere to postgres and never
receive answer. But I think they accept this solution because they have
an old version with postgres and they know somebody running Compiere
with another database (adabas ? DB2 ? I  don't remember)
