Composite Type (person_type)
The extension now includes a composite type named
person_type that represents a person's name and age. This allows for more structured data storage and retrieval. To insert a row with values from the composite type, use the following syntax:
INSERT INTO my_table (person) VALUES (('John Doe', 30));
Enumerated Type (status_type)
A new enumerated type called
status_type is introduced, which provides a predefined set of values for representing different statuses. This enhances data integrity and enables more meaningful data classification. To insert a row with a value from the enumerated type, use the following syntax:
INSERT INTO status_table (status) VALUES ('active');
Domain Type (positive_integer)
The extension now includes a domain type called
positive_integer, which is a specialized data type that represents positive integers. This allows for better constraint enforcement and data validation. To insert a row with a positive integer value, use the following syntax:
INSERT INTO quant_table (quantity) VALUES (10);
