Integration of PostgreSQL and Google Forms

PostgreSQL?

PostgreSQL is an object-relational database that provides support for ACID transactions. PostgreSQL can be used as a multi-user, multi-threaded database management system.

Google Forms?

Google forms enables users to create online forms to cplect data from web, mobile devices, and desktop computers. These forms are designed using spreadsheets and then shared on the Internet.

Integration of PostgreSQL and Google Forms

PostgreSQL provides support for SQL/JDBC and JDBC/ODBC backends. This enables you to connect to PostgreSQL from any Java application that uses either one of these drivers. You can do this in two ways. One of the ways is to use a JDBC driver manager. The other way is to use JPA (Java Persistence API.

Let’s consider the first approach here. You can install the JDBC driver manager in your server and use it to manage the JDBC drivers of all your databases. After installing the driver manager, you should point it to a directory where it can find your driver files. You will also need to make sure that the driver manager can find the jdbc-stdext.jar file when it starts up. Once you have done this you can add your database driver to the driver manager so that you don’t have to worry about finding and loading the correct driver every time you want to load a driver. With this approach, you can access multiple databases through a single connection string by listing all of them in your connection string. For example, suppose you’re working with two databases named database_one and database_two. The connection string might look like this:

jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/database_one;database_name=database_one;service_name=pg9?characterEncoding=UTF-8&useUnicode=true &allowMultiQueries=false&identificationScheme=psqlUserAndPassword &connectionPopName=postgresqlConnectionPop &metadataFactoryClassName=org.postgresql.ds.PGMetadataFactory &connectionAttributes=com.ibm.db2.jdbcx.extension [email protected]

jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/database_two;database_name=database_two;service_name=pg9?characterEncoding=UTF-8& useUnicode=true&allowMultiQueries=false&identificationScheme=psqlUserAndPassword&connectionPopName=postgresqlConnectionPop&metadataFactoryClassName=org.postgresql.ds.PGMetadataFactory&connec tionAttributes=com.ibm.db2.jdbcx.extension [email protected]

The above connection string uses the syntax service_name=service_name to identify each service individually. In this case, both services use the same service name, but they would work just as well if they used different service names. If you use different service names, each of your services will be stored in a separate pop within the database manager instance, and each pop will be managed independently of the others, thus helping to prevent performance problems that can result from sharing resources between pops, which is what happens when you share services with different service names between pops rather than making them unique. Therefore, it makes sense to use different service names when you have multiple services linked to the same database, and they all access it via the same JDBC connection string.

Benefits of Integration of PostgreSQL and Google Forms

Using PostgreSQL as a data store for Google Forms applications requires a degree of care since the data model differs depending on whether it represents a form or a spreadsheet. In this section we will focus on how PostgreSQL can be used for form data storage. We will cover spreadsheets in a future article.

Using PostgreSQL as store for Google Forms provides several benefits including:

You can store user data into tables in your own schema instead of having all user data in one table that is publicly visible to everyone who has access to Google Analytics 360 account;

The integration layer between PostgreSQL and Google Forms can be written in Java language instead of SQL or JavaScript which makes coding easier and faster;

PostgreSQL supports transactions which helps to keep data consistent across multiple forms;

You may run reports on cplected data locally instead of sending data somewhere else for processing because all data is stored locally;

You may implement security at server level offering more contrp over data access permissions;

You may run reports on cplected data locally instead of sending data somewhere else for processing because all data is stored locally;
