Hi all;

I am considering doing a talk (not a tutorial) on how the advanced features
of PostgreSQL allow for extremely powerful business databases.  An abstract
Many application developers working with relational database systems are
used to using the database as a simple data store. However PostgreSQL allows
for far more sophisticated "active," or self-managing databases to be
developed. Many business applications can benefit from using an active
database. This paper explored how views, rules, triggers, and functions can
be used in order to create an active database. The Open Reservation
Management System database (, not yet
stable) will be used as an example, as will the HERMES CRM database system

Best Wishes,
Chris Travers
