PHP for MySQL Striped View

Back in May I explained how to create MySQL striped views with session variables. A couple folks wanted to know how to implement them through PHP programs. The trick is sharing the same connection between a call to the function before a query against the striped view.

I’ve updated the MySQL example beyond the Hobbit analogy from the prior post. It now uses the following database components:

  • An APPLICATION_USER table
  • A striped AUTHORIZED_USER view
  • A FUNCTION_QUERY view to optimize function calls
  • A SET_LOGIN function
  • A GET_LOGIN_ID function
  • A GET_USER_ID function

The definition of the APPLICATION_USER table is:

CREATE TABLE application_user
( user_id …

PHP/MySQL Query

Somebody wanted an example of how to handle column values using PHP to query a MySQL database. While I thought there were enough examples out there, they couldn’t find one that was code complete.

Well, here’s one that works using a static query. If you want to use a prepared statement, check this earlier post.

<html>
<header>
<title>Static Query Object Sample</title>
<style type="text/css">
  /* HTML element styles. */
  table {background:white;border-style:solid;border-width:3px;border-color:black;border-collapse:collapse;}
  th {text-align:center;font-style:bold;background:lightgray;border:solid 1px gray;}
  td {border:solid 1px gray;}
 
  /* Class tag element styles. */
  .ID {min-width:50px;text-align:right;}
  .Label {min-width:200px;text-align:left;}
</style>
</header>

mysqli_result iterations

For the last few months I had quite a few MySQL blog posts and didn't have anything from my "new features in PHP [trunk|5.4]" series. This article is a bridge between those two. The PHP 5.4 NEWS file has a small entry:

MySQLi: Added iterator support in MySQLi. mysqli_result implements Traversable. (Andrey, Johannes)

From the outside it is a really small change and easy to miss. The mentioned class, mysqli_result, implements an interface which adds no new methods. What once can't see is that this relates to some internal C-level functions which can be called by the engine for doing a foreach iteration on objects of this class. So with PHP 5.4 you don't have to use an "ugly" while construct anymore to fetch rows from a mysqli result …

MySQLi result set iteration - recursive

PHP 5.3 is released and after the release stress is over my mind is open for new ideas. While relaxing yesterday I thought about many things, among them was the Resultset iterator I recently discussed.

Now I wondered where to go next with this and had the idea that an individual Resultset is a child of the whole result and this might be wrapped in an Recursive Iterator. For doing so we don't implement the Iterator interface but RecursiveIterator. RecursiveIterator extends a typical Iterator with two methods: hasChildren() and getChildren(). But now we have a problem: The Iterator returned by getChildren() has to be a RecursiveIterator, too, which makes sense, in general. But I want to return a MySQLi Resultset which isn't recursive - so making this a RecursiveIterator is wrong. My solution now is to introduce yet another Iterator which goes by …

MySQLi Resultset Iterator

Over at phpdeveloper.org I was pointed to a blog post talking about MySQLi and stored procedures. That reminded me about a small thing I recently did: When using MySQLi's multi_query to send queries which return multiple result sets you have to use a rather unintuitive API which can certainly be improved.

Recently I sat down and cooked up a small improvement for that, being an iterator fan I, of course, had to use an iterator for that and implemented the following class:

<?php
class MySQLi_ResultsetIterator implements Iterator {
    private $mysqli;
    private $counter = 0;
    private $current = null;
    private $rewinded = false;

    public function __construct(mysqli $mysqli) {
        $this->mysqli = $mysqli;
    }
    private function freeCurrent() {
        if …

Developing MySQL Database Applications With PHP

A four part tutorial that explains the PHP / MySQL extensions - mysql, mysqli, and pdo_mysql - with simple examples is now accessible from Sun Developer Network. While most of the information presented in the tutorial is available elsewhere in bits and pieces, the real value-add is in the introduction of the MySQL native driver for PHP, mysqlnd.

Here is a brief description of all four parts in the series. Check them out, and as always feel free to send the corrections, comments, suggestions, etc., to my Sun mail ID: Giri.Mandalika@Sun.COM
