Yeah, and what is a DB wrapper but a type of abstraction layer, right??
I'd prefer that people use one that's already developed and documented then trying to write their own. Of course, if you never share your code, then do what you want. ---John Holmes. -----Original Message----- From: Leif K-Brooks [mailto:eurleif@;buyer-brokerage.com] Sent: Tuesday, November 05, 2002 9:28 PM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Cc: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: Re: [PHP-DB] Abstraction layer or not? True, but a DB wrapper can do the error reporting as well. John W. Holmes wrote: I'm working on a new site, and I'm wondering whether to use an abstraction layer or not. I don't have any plans to switch DB system, but you never know what the future holds. I figure that there's no reason not to, but are there any down sides? Which abstraction layers are good? ADOdb is a good one. PEAR also has an abstraction class. Once you get used to using them, they make things easier over all. I've never actually switched databases with them, so I don't know how much easier it makes that. I find them ideal for error catching and reporting. ---John Holmes... -- The above message is encrypted with double rot13 encoding.
