A couple of general question about postgresql.

1) Does postgresql support unsigned datatypes?
2) Is there a maximum number of simultaneous connection to postgresql via
JDBC?

    I can't speak to JDBC limitations; see

    Yes.
    We *could* support unsigned-integer datatypes, if anyone actually
    bothered to write one; which TTBOMK no one has done. Do you really
    need an unsigned-int type, as opposed to a plain vanilla integer
    with a constraint "foo >= 0" ?
    2) Is there a maximum number of simultaneous connection to postgresql via
    JDBC?
    Should be whatever you've set as the max number of backends in the
    postmaster parameters.

    Thank you for your response, in regards to my first question how would you
    define an unsigned int2? I haven't beeen able to find anything in the
    postgresql documents?

    My yes response to the question posited that, even though I haven't seen
    such a beast, the CREATE TYPE statement supports (creation and use) of
    the unsigned data type.

    Tom Lane's response is more to the point than mine.
