Is this database just standalone or can it be embedded. All the info
that you can find concerning this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

    Joe, i'm no guru, but it would probably help if you
    defined "embedded."

    i've never heard of an embedded database and i'm
    curious as to what it is.

    If, by "embedded," you mean that the database would run inside some
    existing process, the answer is a clear "no, not gonna do that."

    If you *truly* need an "embedded" database, you should probably look
    into SQLite.

    It would be possible to mostly hide a PostgreSQL instance, via:
    - creating some local directory inside your application filesystem
    where it would hide
    - don't turn on TCP/IP; only use Unix Domain Sockets to communicate
    with the instance
    - make sure the UDS is created somewhere "hidden" in the application
    filesystem so it isn't readily visible to users on the system

    That would still consist of multiple processes independent of the
    application...

    PostgreSQL is designed to be a multi-user client/server database. You
    won't find an easy way to embed it in another application.
