Backup and Restore with PostgreSQL 8.2

Michael Schmidt - 2007-02-18 17:20 - Komo PostgreSQL Client

An issue has arisen with the Komo backup and restore features when used with PostgreSQL 8.2. The version 8.2 utilities now use low level (tty) input/output for displaying the password prompt and accepting password input. In the past, they used high level (stdout, stderr, stdin) input/output, and Komo was able to read the prompt and output the password on these streams. Unfortunately, Java really can't work with the low level streams now being used. However, all is not lost. A simple solution is to use make sure the user has a .pgpass file (see PostgreSQL documentation for this) and eliminate the -W parameter in the BackupWizard and RestoreWizard classes. It appears the PostgreSQL backup and restore utilities will automatically find and use the .pgpass file.

Komo is now available

Michael Schmidt - 2006-05-04 00:42 - Komo PostgreSQL Client

Komo PostgreSQL Client is ready for use. It is a Java language application built with Eclipse Rich Client Platform that can serve as the foundation for creating client user interfaces. It includes basic program functions, several advanced UI features available with RCP, database connectivity via JDBC, and threaded database utilities. To create a customized application for your database, import it into an Eclipse workspace, add application-specific features (views, editors, reports), and modify the existing branding items. Download either the Windows demo application or the source code only (both contain source code). Enjoy!

Komo on Mac

Michael Schmidt - 2006-05-01 18:21 - Komo PostgreSQL Client

Just received notification from a user that Komo works fine on Mac OS X 10.4.6, Eclipse 3.2RC2, and Java 1.5. The screen shots look very nice, as would be expected for OS X. A binary demo is available and I can upload it if folks are interested.
