Database API

  • As soon as you include the database handler in the front controller the database connection is made and the resource will be assigned to $global['db'] variable.
required_once($global['approot'].'inc/handler_db.inc');

Using $global['db']

  • People who want to make database calls can use the $global['db'] connection variable.
function shn_ws_mpr_insert_person($full_name, $family_name, $l10n_name, $custom_name)
{
    global $global;
    global $ws_error_msg;
    $sql = "INSERT INTO person_uuid ( full_name, family_name, l10n_name, custom_name) ";
    $sql .= "VALUES ( '$full_name', '$family_name', '$l10n_name', '$custom_name')";
 
    if(! $global['db']->Execute($sql) )
        return new soap_fault('Client', '', 'Could not insert $full_name');
    else
        return 'Success fully inserted $full_name';
}

Using shn_db_clean

  • You can use shn_db_clean($string) to clean and put escape characters to the user input data. This will prevent SQL Injecttions. NOTE: make sure you don't use this on an already escaped string.
...
    $full_name = shn_db_clean($_POST['fullname']);
 
    $sql = "INSERT INTO person_uuid ( full_name ) VALUE ('$full_name');
...

Using shn_db_insert_phonetic

...
    $full_name = $_POST['fullname'];
    $p_uuid = '12';
    shn_db_insert_phonetic($full_name,$p_uuid);
...

Using shn_db_insert

  • You may use shn_db_insert() if you have a populated an associative array with 'field name' ⇒ 'value' .
...
    $person_uuid['full_name'] = $_POST['fullname'];
    $person_uuid['last_name'] = $_POST['lname'];
    $person_uuid['l10n_name'] = $_POST['l10nname'];
    $person_uuid['custom_name'] = $_POST['custname'];
 
    shn_db_insert($person_uuid,'person_uuid');
...

Using shn_db_update

  • You may use shn_db_update() if you have a populated an associative array with 'field name' ⇒ 'value' and that you like to updated the record.
...
    $person_uuid['full_name'] = $_POST['fullname'];
    $person_uuid['last_name'] = $_POST['lname'];
    $person_uuid['l10n_name'] = $_POST['l10nname'];
    $person_uuid['custom_name'] = $_POST['custname'];
 
    shn_db_update($person_uuid,'person_uuid'," WHERE p_uuid = '12'");
...
