While setting up PostgreSQL from scratch, with the aim to use it in NetBeans IDE together with Hibernate, I found the following resources helpful:
For quite a while I had problems relating to "/var/run/postgresql/.s.PGSQL.5432", which had something to do with "postmaster.pid", which I somehow solved via a link I can't find anymore, and which may not have been a problem to begin with.
A key moment was this one, which was useful for setting the password of a new user I'd created:
This was useful for setting up a table in my database, which I did by pasting in the below into NetBeans after I made the connection there:
Now I have a database set up with all permissions everywhere (which turned out to be the hard part) correct:
The next step will be to create a NetBeans Platform application based on this database. I'm assuming it shouldn't be any different to what's described in the NetBeans Platform CRUD Tutorial. But I'll be using Hibernate, instead of EclipseLink.
