Postgres New JSON data type Support of Static and Dynamic schemas

Now we can create static and dynamic both kind of schema relational table so a new kind of heterogeneous data structure can be created in Relational tables.  Relational database that is much more concerned with standards compliance and extensible than with giving you freedom over how you store data. It uses both dynamic and static schema and allows you to use it for relational data and normalized form storage.

Static Relation data structure in Postgres

CREATE TABLE Project (  id serial PRIMARY KEY,  name varchar,  mgr integer,  is_active boolean );
CREATE TABLE Task(  id serial PRIMARY KEY, name varchar, status boolean, project_id integer,
CONSTRAINT idx_project_id FOREIGN KEY (project_id) REFERENCES project (id) );

Dynamic Relation data structure in Postgres

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS project ( id serial PRIMARY KEY,  name varchar,  mgr integer,  tasks jsonb , is_active boolean );

Keeping JSON Document inside Postgres Table

INSERT INTO project VALUES (1,'YoungDBA',2,'{"id": 1, "name": "test1","status": "Done","date": "2018-01-18", "is_active": "True"}'); 
INSERT INTO project VALUES (2,'YoungDBA',2,'{"id": 1, "name": "test1","status": "Done","date": "2018-01-18", "is_active": "True"}'); 
INSERT INTO project VALUES (3,'YoungDBA',2,'{"id": 1, "name": "test1","status": "Done","date": "2018-01-18", "is_active": "True"}');

Now aggregation from static and dynamic data is easier than than documentdb 

SELECT visitor_id, SUM(CAST(properties->>'amount' AS integer)) AS total
FROM events WHERE CAST(properties->>'amount' AS integer) > 0 GROUP BY visitor_id;

SELECT browser->>'name' AS browser, count(browser)
FROM events GROUP BY browser->>'name';

SELECT AVG(CAST(browser->'resolution'->>'x' AS integer)) AS width,
AVG(CAST(browser->'resolution'->>'y' AS integer)) AS height FROM events;

mongoDB error : aborting after fassert() failure

What to do when facing errors on mongoDB “aborting after fassert() failure” I like errors, in mongoDB this is the first error I faced and luckily many times. This error i faced during restoring name-space on local and restarting db system. I am still searching the exact root cause of this issue but i am able to resolve the current problem through below steps. Remove all relevant namespace files from data-file route path.. Now repair mongo instance using mongod process. mongod --repair ////////// execute command from bin folder path  Then start server using mongd process, if started server successfully then .. mongod  ////////// execute command from bin folder path Restore last backups as normal process. Now check database by connecting mongo shell. Thanks for reading,  Please comment your experience if you faced and also share knowledge if you have better steps to resolve...  

SQL71562: external references are not supported when creating a package from this platform

Last week I got this error from one of developer who was trying to deploy his project from Testing server to SQL Azure QA server. He was using “Deploy Database to SQL Azure” option from SSMS Tool-Task option. After connecting to SQL Azure portal when operation started to deployment below errors occurs. Validation of the schema model for data package failed. Error SQL71562: Error validating element has an unresolved refrence to object xx.dbo.xxxx external refrences are not supported when creating a package from this platform . Reason: The reason of the this error was; some functions of project was dependent on master database and only single database was being deploy to SQL Azure. DACFx must block Export when object definitions (views, procedures, etc.) contain external references, as Azure SQL Database does not allow cross-database external references So, this error was coming. Solution : I suggested him to create those function to locally
