PHP Object relations FAQ

written 4142 days ago

Frequently asked questions and issues about POG’s object relations.

1. POG’s parent/child relation seems to solve the issue of 1-many and many-1. What about many-many?

We are currently working on many-many relations and it should be available soon.

Edit: POG 2.5 onwards now allows many-many or SIBLING relations as we call it.

2. Can an object reference to another object of the same type? For e.g. a task has many (sub)tasks.

No. This will probably be possible when we implement support for many-many relations.

3. Where’s the documentation?

POG Object relations is a relatively new feature, introduced in version 2.0. As such, we haven’t had too much time to release a lot of documentation. However, we do have:

We’re currently adding some more documentation pertaining to Object relations to the tutorials section.


Object relations documentation have been added to the tutorials section. It has been classified under the section “Advanced”.

you should put the tutorial from your blog about how to make {PARENTS} and {CHILD} object to the Advance section. well at least.. a link to that tutorial.

I missed that part and I have to rebuild 15 tables.

Done. Thanks

I read the documentation, enter the main site and didn’t found where to set the object to be parent or child

Thanks, you’re one of the few people to point out this omission.

We’ve added some screenshots that hopefully will help:

We’ll try and add some video tutorials on the matter shortly as well. thanks for the feedback

I want to use phpobjectgenerator to build one of my website, and for easy backup I want to work with SQLite. I selected PHP 5.1+, but on the database list is possible to select only MySql. How can I select to generate code for SQLite (or to adjust for SQLite)? Thank you

Support for databases other than mysql has been dropped a few versions ago.
