Syntax to Create Table in Schema
The fundamental punctuation to make table in composition is as per the following −
CREATE TABLE myschema.mytable ( ... );
Allow us to see a model for making an outline. Interface with the data set testdb and make a construction myschema as follows −
testdb=# create schema myschema; CREATE SCHEMA
The message "Make SCHEMA" connotes that the outline is made effectively.
Presently, let us make a table in the above construction as follows −
testdb=# create table myschema.company( ID INT NOT NULL, NAME VARCHAR (20) NOT NULL, AGE INT NOT NULL, ADDRESS CHAR (25), SALARY DECIMAL (18, 2), PRIMARY KEY (ID) );
This will make a vacant table. You can confirm the table made with the order given underneath −
testdb=# select * from myschema.company;
This would create the accompanying outcome −
id | name | age | address | salary ----+------+-----+---------+-------- (0 rows)
Syntax to Drop Schema
To drop a pattern in the event that it is vacant (all items in it have been dropped), utilize the order −
DROP SCHEMA myschema;
To drop a construction including every single contained article, utilize the order −
DROP SCHEMA myschema CASCADE;
Advantages of using a Schema
- It permits numerous clients to utilize one data set without meddling with one another.
- It arranges information base articles into intelligent gatherings to make them more sensible.
- Outsider applications can be placed into discrete constructions so they don't crash into the names of different articles.
