Hello!

We are planning a project with PostgreSQL/PostGIS database (with geometry datas) and Eclipselink. I'm intereseted the opinion of those people, who have used or tried to use PosGIS and Eclipselink together. Is it possible to use together these, if it is, are there any description or tutorial on the web?

Thanks,
Tamas

It should be possible. EclipseLink does not provide direct support for PostGIS data, but does have support for spatial data (on Oracle).

You may need to create your own PostGISPlatform extensions to add support for the spatial data.

Feel free to log an enhancement request, or if you develop your own platform submit it as a patch to the enhancement.

James,

Are you still around? Did this project go anywhere?

I've seen messages about this, and everything looks tantalizingly close...

I'm prepared to do some of the lifting if you (or anyone else) can help direct my efforts.

Thanks,
DD

I;m not sure if the user logged the enhancement or not. We have not done any work with PostGIS in EclipseLink as of yet.

Hi James,

Based on my look at the Oracle extensions, this doesn't look like it's too difficult.
I'm prepared to help make this happen, is there someone that I'd want to talk with?
Anywhere that you could help point me?

Thanks,
DD

I would start by logging the bug.

You will add your extensions to the PostgreSQLPlatform and may need to add a subpackage postgres for any additional classes.

Once you have it working you can attached a patch to the bug.

You may also wish to add some tests. Any JUnit tests would be sufficient.

Once you have everything added to the bug, someone will review and commit the patch if it is sufficient.

We also have a Incubator concept for major changes, but a patch is probably sufficient.
