Functional impact:
  • End of support of PostgreSQL in easySDI.
  • Improve easySDI global quality by only delivering tested software.

Description

On February 12th 2016 meeting, Technical Committee proposes to remove PostgreSQL support.
Reasons are:
  • There is no known user of easySDI running PGSQL
  • PGSQL install and updates are not tested in easySDI
  • There is (or was) Joomla problems in PGSQL support. We cannot guarantee that current Joomla version runs properly on PGSQL
  • Third party software is very rarely supported on PGSQL, so a user of Joomla/easySDI on PGSQL would not be able to take advantage of market modules/plugins/components.

#4 Updated by Blatti Yves over 3 years ago

I have looked up for postgresql in code... (things like if(JFactory::getDbo()->name == 'postgresql')
=> didn't find any, so the only thing to do is : remove install + update SQL files, then adapt ant build for xml generation

rev. 9572
(force removal of files, since installer doesn't remove the SQL folder/files in case of update,
same method as used by Joomla installer: https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/blob/staging/administrator/components/com_admin/script.php)
