1. Introduce

DatabaseDumperRestorer is a simple console tool, designed to help a user of PostgreSQL DB Server to perform such basic frequently accessed commands, as:

A) creating dumps (in other words, snapshots, backups) of a list of data bases (by running pg_dump PostgreSQL binary)

B) creating or restoring DB-es from previously created dumps (thus, bringing the state of a set of DB-es to their state at the time, when the dumps were created). This is accomplished by running either pg_restore or psql PostgreSQL binaries, depending on the file format utilized.

The program performs the following steps:

1) Reads the configuration properties’ values from Checks the necessary constraints for them.

2) Creates folder Logs on the root, common to DatabaseDumperRestorer.jar. Checks the presence of <snapshotname> directory on the snapshots.root.path if –restore option is active. Otherwise (–dump is active) attempts to create a directory for snapshots.root.path and a directory for a specific snapshot (if either of them is not present), named as a runtime timestamp. Creates a log file in Logs folder, named according to mask <timestamp>_<operation>_<snapshotname>.

3) Checks, if a connection to each individual database of user’s list can be established in case of –dump being active. Later on ignores the databases’ names, which it failed to connect to. Otherwise(–restore) checks, if a connection to PostgreSQL Server can be established via the specified details. Aborts, if one cannot be set up.

4) Executes the following binaries for each of the databases still present in the list (also sets the environment variables “PGPASSWORD” and “LD_LIBRARY_PATH” to the required values)

2. Requirement

2.1 Files

The following files are required on the root: 1) DatabaseDumperRestorer.jar 2) 3) log4j-1.2.15.jar 4) postgresql-9.4-1201.jdbc4.jar, or a corresponding analogue

2.2 Operating System

Windows and Linux operating system are currently supported.

2.3 Perl Installation

If JRodos Database should be updated from 8.x to 9.x, perl need be installed on your system.

For Windows user, please download “32bit PortableZIP edition” from , then unzip it somewhere. The perl bin path need be defined in

For Linux user, perl is installed as default.

3. Run program

To run the script program, you will need to execute one of the two following instructions from command line:

A)java -jar DatabaseDumperRestorer.jar –dump

B)java -jar DatabaseDumperRestorer.jar –restore <snapshotname>,

where <snapshotname> is the name of folder, containing dump files you wish to restore from. The program will try to locate this folder under <snapshots.root.path> - the parameter, present in configuration file
