As for QGIS plugin it is only a prototype. You have to enter all
connection and new layer's column parameters by hand each time. No
better than doing this from CLI or pgAdmin.
Thanks for the gvSIG hint. Unfortunatelly it provides only five data
types, forces 'text' datatype for string data, which is an overkill and
way slower than varchar when not needed, forces 'double precision' for
floating point. I was able to crash it twice (the 1.1.1 version) within
few minutes of usage. If it was just me I could maybe stand this but not
More hints welcome.
