PGNP OLEDB Provider for PostgreSQL, Greenplum and Redshift

PostgreSQLThe PGNP provider is a thin layer between Microsoft ADO and PostgreSQL database. It implements most of the OLEDB interfaces and uses libpq to access a PostgreSQL database. The provider can be used from 32-bit and 64-bit applications both native and .NET.

    Main features are:

  • Database conversion with DTS Wizard (MSSQL 2000) or SSIS Wizard (MSSQL 2005/2008/2012).
  • Support for SSRS, SSAS and SSIS.
  • SQL Server Linked Servers and Replication support.
  • Error reporting and execution tracing.
  • Transactions support: standard OLEDB, and "nested" PostgreSQL transaction using savepoints.
  • Distributed transactions (two phase commit protocol).
  • Schema support for tables, views, provider types, columns, primary/foreign keys, indexes, etc.

Added Extended Properties parameter STREAM.
Optimized metadata loading when table with the same name exists in multiple schema.
Stability and performance improvement for bulk load.
Fixed bug in FastLoad to Redshift - symbol "!" was replaced with \041.
Fixed memory leak when querying Redshift and cursors enabled.
Fixed side effect from prev change resulting in "undefined table" when querying schema.table.
Profiler: allowed passing .pgl files as command line parameters. Fixed bug in the explorer refresh: if more than a single .pgl file is open then the list of open file can start duplicating entries.
