PDO: Introduction


Generating code compatible with PDO was a choice we made because we recognized early on that PDO would become the standard way PHP web applications interact with databases. Because PDO is essentially a database abstraction layer that is compiled, it provides better performance and security over database layers written in PHP, such as PEARDB and even the POG database wrapper. That is why, if you’re generating code for PHP 5.1 and above, we strongly suggest that you choose PDO as the database wrapper. We do provide POG as database wrapper for consistency purposes.

PDO is the new lightweight and consistent database interface for PHP and is one of the new features included in the PHP distribution as of version 5.1. PDO basically makes your code more consistent and portable, regardless of the database you’re using to store data. And since PDO is part of the PHP core instead of a database astraction layer on top of PHP, it should also bring along some performance enhancements.
