While tools such as pgAdmin, psql, and vi can provide a powerful environment for developing PostgreSQL applications, the key advantage to an integrated development environment such as Eclipse allows developers to manage all of their project files from table definitions to Java code in a single tool. In this session, we will discuss the different options for developing PostgreSQL schemas including the Eclipse Data Tools Platform as well as a number of external plug-ins capable of managing a PostgreSQL database. Database best practices for Java developers will be emphasized.
