The Italian PGDay 2011 will take place in Prato, on Friday November 25th, at the Monash University Prato Centre. Exactly, where it all started.The event, organised by the Italian PostgreSQL Users Group, will be a great chance for both Italian and European members of the PostgreSQL community to gather together and to promote PostgreSQL.
In the first part of this tutorial, we have set up all the connections required for creating the job, now we can proceed with data import. Let’s drag and drop inside the visual editor an object named tMap. You can find it on the left, in the instruments palette, inside the “elaboration” folder.
In this article we are going to show you how to write PL/Java functions in Greenplum. I assume that you have a working Greenplum (or Greenplum Community Edition) at your disposal. In this example we will use version **4.0.4**, installed in /usr/local/greenplum-db-184.108.40.206 (which is the default location).
hen working with databases, one of the most common task is to load data from one or more CSV files. Several tools are available to achieve this task. Some are executed via command line, like COPY (using psql), some are more complex, like ETL systems. We will start today with Talend but, in the next weeks, […]

Picking back up this week’s theme of where you can publicize your PostgreSQL related project at, you’re probably reading this blog entry because it appeared on the Planet PostgreSQL blog aggregator. There are “Planet” feeds around many open-source projects. The Debian and GNOME ones spawned off the Planet software, which now powers a ton of […]
The software license PostgreSQL is released under makes it extremely friendly to businesses who would like to use the database in commercial products. Partly as a result of this, a significant amount of PostgreSQL development is donated by companies who sell products derived from the database (even entire forks of the source code).

One of the coolest features that Greenplum offers to Data warehousing and Business Intelligence operators as far as ETL is concerned, is the combination of read only external tables with gpfdist, Greenplum’s parallel file distribution server. The typical use case for this solution is parallel data loading of text files (coming from etherogeneous sources – […]
