Mastering PostgreSQL Rule Syntax Apr 19, 2024 by Robert Gravelle

PostgreSQL rules offer a powerful mechanism for controlling query execution and enforcing data manipulation within the database. Understanding the syntax and usage of rules is essential for harnessing their capabilities effectively. In last week's article, we explored how PostgreSQL rules work and how they differ from triggers. Today's follow-up will cover their syntax in detail with more practical examples using the free "dvdrental" sample database.

Ensuring Data Integrity in PostgreSQL with Check Constraints Mar 25, 2024 by Robert Gravelle

Data integrity is a critical aspect of any database system, ensuring that the data stored remains accurate, consistent, and meaningful. In PostgreSQL, one powerful tool for maintaining data integrity is the use of check constraints. These constraints allow you to define rules that data must adhere to, preventing the insertion or modification of invalid data. In this article, we'll explore how to use check constraints to validate data in PostgreSQL, using the free DVD Rental Database as a reference.
