pl/java works pretty well and is somewhat widely used although it might need some more active maintainers. just jumping into the project and nailing some old bugs and getting the juices flowing would be a tremendous help, as well as the less glamorous work of documentation and regular status updates. one pl/java based project that IMO is just screaming to be done is a pl/java based FDW (wrapping JDBC) that would approximately reproduce dblink...maybe with some extra features geared towards ETL type jobs like a row based callback for transformations in java. merlin -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
