Aggregate with PostgreSQL

Are there any instructions available for setting up Aggregate 1.0 to
work with PostgreSQL? We wouldn't mind helping to test it out...

Hi Tyler,

Are you a Eclipse/Java software developer? Or just savvy about installing
web apps? Or neither?

I'm not a java developer. I use eclipse, but for Python development
(PyDev). My java web app installation experience usually involves dropping
war files into Tomcat, and submitting log traces when something goes wrong.

Great.

Set up a system with the latest JDK, Tomcat and Postgresql installed. Are
you a Windows or Linux or Mac user?

I'll write up the other steps in a bit. I'm working on a check-in, and will
provide you with a war file after I get that done.

Since we don't have a Postgres installer yet, you'll need to manually
configure the database, and also manually alter some configuration files,
then update a jar in the war file I give you. Once that is done, you can
drop the modified war into tomcat, and you should be good to go. Tedious
and less complex than it sounds.

I develop on ubuntu linux, and I am comfortable installing and configuring
postgresql.

Do you use postgis to store the spatial data types?

Great.

I got this all working with Postgres once, struggled with the use of
Google Accounts for login though, but finally did get it working.
Would love to have instructions. AFAIK, postgis is not used by
default, I added a trigger to create a postgis point from the lat and
lon columns on insert. I had started looking at how to make ODK a
GeoServer community module so we could get WMS/WFS pretty easily, but
never got beyond the drawing board.

Correct, we don't use postgis. We store geopoints as 4 columns of lat,
long, altitude, accuracy.

Hopefully a view could be defined on top of our table that would present the
postgis datatypes?

I'll start work on the configuration steps this afternoon...
