In PostgreSQL, inserting records in a table is made using the INSERT command, as in other DBMS.
Using the following syntax you can insert records in a table, it is very simple and intuitive to be learned:
INSERT INTO [Table] VALUES ([Values])
There is another possible use of syntax which are used the column names, as shown below:
INSERT INTO [Table] ([Columns]) VALUES ([Values])
As a practical example we will insert records in a table of products.
INSERT INTO product VALUES (‘Tv’, 20)
INSERT INTO product (Nome, Quantidade) VALUES (‘Computer’, 30)
In the examples shown above are the two ways to write records to a table shown above.
PostgreSQL proves to be very efficient in web applications and because of this their use in development environments has increased significantly. Analyzing this scenario we realize how important it is for professionals to understand the workings of this fantastic database.
Currently he is known as one of the most advanced free databases in the world, created in 1985 by Michael Stonebraker, it is in the version 9.0 released in 2010. The PostgreSQL Global Development Group works hard in the source code of the database to make it more complete.PostgreSQL has gained more space in the market for web development because of the large amount of resources it has, moreover, it is a free DBMS and this makes it extremely attractive for those who need to work with low-cost projects.
Who uses the PostgreSQL database in PHP projects successfully combine low production and maintenance cost, also it has many of the features that the databases offers thus making it a complete option.
