Time
10:00 - 10:25 (25 minutes)
Abstract

PostgreSQL is one of the oldest and most successful opensource projects, it has an avid worldwide community with thousends of people discussing on mailinglists and forums, hundreds of developers contribution code and patches every release and a huge userbase that needs to stay informed and supported.

Often underestimated and usually invisible (except when it breaks down) it is the worldwide hosted infrastructure that enables a project as large as this to work effectively.

However it is rarely known in the wider community how all the bits work together and what else there is beside the website, the mailing lists and the main cvs repository.

This talk aims at providing answers to what the infrastructure consists of, how and by whom it is managed as well as giving an inside view on what we plan to do in the future.

Profile

Stefan Kaltenbrunner is a "major contributor" to the PostgreSQL opensource project working on the projects server and software infrastructure as well as the website.

Aside from his duties as part of the sysadmin team, he is also doing regular benchmarking and regression testing of PostgreSQL and related tools.

Forensic Analysis of Corrupted PostgreSQL Databases

Gregory Stark

* material (PDF/292KB)

Time
11:00 - 11:50 (50 minutes)
Abstract

In a fantasy world Postgres never has bugs, hardware never fails, and DBAs never use faulty backup procedures. However in the real world any of these circumstances can lead to data corruption. We analyse the typical symptoms caused by these different failure modes and the common strategies used to repair databases when a clean restore is impossible.

Time
12:45 - 13:05 (20 minutes)
Abstract

The speaker is now working for a SME, and he will talk about his experience to introduce PostgreSQL at his company.

Generally speaking, SMEs have no enough IT human resource, as well as money budgets, that makes it very hard for such SME to introduce IT environment within the organization.

He had good knowledge about Open Source Software, and felt big potential about OSS RDBMS when he came upon PostgreSQL in 2001.

The speaker installed PostgreSQL and studied commands, made simple systems with PostgreSQL, etc., but he regretted that he did not have deeper knowledge about RDBMS, like PostgreSQL. Facing to that situation, he began to study RDBMS hardly, and now, the speaker is capable to build e-commerce sites with the search capability using PostgreSQL.

Profile

Born in 1973 in Osaka. After graduated from the university, I was engaged in the current SME, to whom I introduced OSS. Now, I am reserching the best model how to introduce IT into SME.

Unit Test Your Database!

Time
13:20 - 14:10 (50 minutes)
Abstract

We're all used to unit testing our applications by now. The Extreme and Agile programming movements have done a great deal to promote unit testing, to the extent that many of us are now dependent on tests to assure that our applications work reliably. But how often do we test the database underlying our applications? Given that the database, as the repository for all of the knowledge and data for an application, just might be the single most important part of that application, the time for standardized database unit testing has come.

This talk promotes the practice of writing and running unit tests that directly test the schema, storage, and functionality of application databases. Following a review of the available PostgreSQL unit testing frameworks, we'll look at examples of testing tables, views, columns, constraints, indexes, triggers, and functions. The idea is to promote complete test coverage every aspect of a database, independent of application unit tests, to ensure reliably canonical data integrity.

Time
15:20 - 16:10 (50 minutes)
Abstract

In the SQL standard, Common Table Expressions are a way of creating and using views at run time, but only in read queries. Here we discover ways to use them in writes.

We can make Common Table Expressions even more powerful than the current SQL standard allows. We might even make it part of a future SQL standard.

Old syntax:

WITH [RECURSIVE] cte1 [(col[, col...])] AS (
READ_QUERY
[(UNION|INTERSECT) [ALL]
READ_QUERY
)[, cte2 ...]
SELECT ...

New syntax:

WITH [RECURSIVE] cte1 [(col[, col...])] AS (
ROW_RETURNING_QUERY /* for example, DELETE...RETURNING */
[(UNION|INTERSECT) [ALL]
ROW_RETURNING QUERY
)[, cte2 ...]
SELECT...

株式会社 SRA 西日本 三谷 篤

Time
10:00 - 10:25 (25 minutes)
Abstract

PGCluster is a multi-master and synchronous replication system for PostgreSQL. The latest version of PGCluster has new features as follows.

(1) Automated build the synchronous replication environment

In order to build cluster DB as a synchronous repilication system, it needs to setup the consistent configuration for all servers. It is not easy way. The more servers set up the more complex configurations. This feature generate consistent configuration files for all servers by minumun setup.

(2) Automated restore faulted server to replication environment

In order to keep stable DB system, operators monitor and maintenance it 24h-7d as mandatory activity. The latest PGCluster having auto monitoring and auto recovery function. And it works as a seamless integration.

(3) Portable Cluster DB

Some mobile users demand to use cluster DB beyond the reach of the network. This feature syncs data for all DBs after connected the portal cluster DB, and execute accumulated queries during it was standalone.

Profile

Atsushi has developed and maintained PGCluster which is a synchronous multi-master replication system for PostgreSQL since 2001.

He has taken an active part in a Europe Open Source conference during he had worked in the Netherlands for 2005 - 2007.

Now, he is planing to develop the clustering system and the grid system of PostgreSQL which uses a partial shared data not a replication.

Time
10:25 - 10:50 (25 minutes)
Abstract

pgpool-II is a middleware that works between PostgreSQL servers and a client. pgpool-II provides connection pooling, replication and load balancing functions. Business use of pgpool-II has been expanding the last few years, because pgpool-II enables higher performance and higher availability compared to a single PostgreSQL server.

In this session, we explain the latest information of pgpool-II, such as the overview, recent updates and the case study with pgpool-II. In addition, we introduce the combination of pgpool-II, synchronous replication and hot standby functions in PostgreSQL 8.5.

Time
11:00 - 11:50 (50 minutes)
Abstract

It has been 11 years since XML was developed and the support of XML standard continues in the world of database as well. In such circumstance, PostgreSQL8.4 implements XML functions which are equivalent to other commercial databases and it has reached the level where it can be fully put to practical use as XML system.

The presentation gives a broad overview of PostgreSQl 8.4 starting from its basic operations such as storage and retrieval of XML data, followed by the method of applying index function, which is fundamental in database operation, to XML, and furthermore, its additional supplied module XML2 which supports XSLT, a significant transformational technology.

In explaining functions, utilization methods are presented in which advantages as a hybrid database supporting XML in RDB are fully incorporated. Further, needs and the pros and cons of implementing XML data validation functionality using XML schema definitions (W3C XML Schema) are discussed and suggestions are given towards the future extension of XML functionalities in PostgreSQL.
