BLOBs (oid and bytea)? I didn't see anything in the Wiki or project site that addresses these
questions, so I'd thought I'd turn to the list for answers. I would MUCH rather use this tool
than Hibernate. Thanks!!

Hi Pat.

We (as in ) use empire-db/postgres in production since one year
(not facing the customer/web side though) and never had any problems.
We are using "DataType.INTEGER"/"bigint" for primary keys and we used "bytea" to store snapshots
of our model, via plain java serialization (now it is "text" as we store an xml representation).
Our selects are fairly simple, we never used outer joins, stored procedures or other exotica.
