Backup and Restore PostgreSQL Databases from Command Line

 If you are using PostgreSQL on Windows, Linux, MacOS or IBM i, it's not super obvious how to back up your database on a regular basis. 

The following how-to article I created on GitHub will help you to back up and restore your PostgreSQL databases if PostgreSQL is a part of your database environment. 

Click the following link to view the article. Enjoy and let me know if you have any PostgreSQL questions.

Running JasperReports from IBM i

For any of you looking to do reporting from IBM i. I created a wrapper around Pete Helgrens RPG Report Generator Java code that can execute Jasper Reports from IBM i. 

I have done work with Jasper Reports since 2007. JasperReports has a bit of a learning curve but well worth it if you learn to build reports and documents with it. 

This wrapper is IBM i specific, but Jasper can be used anywhere to generate reports. Have fun.
