This scenario is a simple sandbox in which you can experiment with SQL in EDB Postgres Advanced Server.

When you start, the terminal window will automatically launch the psql command line client and connect to the pagila database in an Advanced Server 12 instance.

The pagila database is a port of the Sakila sample database which has been updated to be more Postgres idiomatic.

We hope you enjoyed playing with EDB Postgre Advanced Server! If you wish to install your own copy for futher evaluation, please visit the EDB download page.
