Open Docs Publishing has announced today that they plan to release their
sixth book entitled "Learning PostgreSQL: The Elephant Never Forgets" by
the first week of June. This title will include PostgreSQL Great Bridge
version 7.1 (The Linux World Editors winner for Best Database in 2000).
This will offer to companies the security of a replication server, data
backup services, disaster recovery, and business continuity solutions
previously limited to more costly commercial Relational Database Management
System (RDBMS) packages. Who could ask for more?
Open Docs has gone one step further by not only including the complete
source code for PostgreSQL , but also the LXP application server as well.
The book will fully document installation procedures, administration
techniques, usage, basic programming interfaces, and replication
capabilities of PostgreSQL. A complete reference guide will also be
included. Databases have become the core infrastructure of e-business, and
once again Open Docs has put their writers hard at work to make sure that
you will find this guide to be informative and everything you have been
looking for in a PostgreSQL technical reference.
About Postgres and PostgreSQL:
Postgres is an active Database Management System that was originally
developed at U.C. Berkeley. The Postgres project was led by Professor
Michael Stonebraker. The project was originally funded by the Defense
Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) , the Army Research Office (ARO)
, along with the National Science Foundation (NSF) , and the English as a
Second Language Program (ESL). The Postgres project officially ended with
As the development of Postgres continued, it was renamed Postgres95 and SQL
capabilities were added. During the continual evolution of Postgres95, it
was later renamed PostgreSQL. The name PostgreSQL was chosen to reflect the
standards based nature of the product and to allow comparison with
commercial databases such as Sybase and Informix.
