In this paper I would like to talk about how PostgreSQL, a full-featured open source database management system, can be integrated with the Internet auction site eBay. I will be discussing eBay as an application for which PostgreSQL can be used as a database, and also the benefits of using PostgreSQL over another more traditional RDBMS.
eBay is an online auction site that allows individuals to put items they no longer need up for auction. People who want to buy something put in bids on items they are interested in, and all of this information is stored in a database. This data is typically stored in a relational database such as MySQL, but eBay has chosen to use PostgreSQL as its primary database. The reasons for this are discussed in this section.
The first reason that eBay chose PostgreSQL over other options is because of its support for multiple programming languages. Other databases such as MySQL only support one language, but PostgreSQL supports many languages including C, Perl, Tcl/Tk, Scheme, Python and Java. This allows eBay to write many parts of their system in whatever language they see fit. In addition, the fact that PostgreSQL has been around for a while means that there is good documentation available. Also, there are good tops available for PostgreSQL that allow it to be installed and configured easily.
The second reason that eBay chose PostgreSQL is because of the features and functionality it provides. In addition to supporting multiple programming languages and being able to handle many different types of data types, PostgreSQL also supports a number of advanced features. For example, PostgreSQL supports referential integrity so it can enforce rules about how different fields relate to each other within a single table. It also has support for views, which is a way of creating virtual tables that can be queried through SQL commands. Views are commonly used to simplify complex queries by hiding implementation details from the user. Another advanced feature supported by PostgreSQL is triggers, which can be used to set off an action when certain events occur (such as inserting or deleting data.
In conclusion, we have seen that PostgreSQL, a full-featured open source database management system, offers a number of reasons why it is a good choice for eBay and other websites that have similar needs. These reasons include the fact that it supports multiple programming languages and is modular enough to work with any of them, and also the fact that it supports advanced features such as views, triggers and referential integrity.
