/me searches for jaw on floor. It sounds like you don't understand how logical decoding works. There are plugins -- fairly widely used, I think -- like https://github.com/confluentinc/bottledwater-pg and https://github.com/eulerto/wal2json which use the in-core infrastructure to do very nifty things, much like there are foreign data wrappers other than postgres_fdw. Even test_decoding is (perhaps regrettably) being used to build production solutions. The point is that most of the logic is in core; test_decoding or bottlewater or wal2json are just small plugins that tap into that infrastructure. I would not in any way refer to logical decoding as being only a proof of concept, even before logical replication. -- Robert Haas EnterpriseDB: http://www.enterprisedb.com The Enterprise PostgreSQL Company -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
