PDO and Dependency Injection

Dependency injection is good for testing.  But for anyone wanting various data mapper objects to have a database connection, dependency injection can make other model code very messy because database objects have to be instantiated all over the place and given to the data mapper objects.

The code below is a good way to maintain dependency injection while keeping clean and minimal model code.

<?php

class DataMapper
{
    public static
$db;
   
    public static function
init($db)
    {
       
self::$db = $db;
    }
}

class
VendorMapper extends DataMapper
{
    public static function
add($vendor)
    {
       
$st = self::$db->prepare(
           
"insert into vendors set
            first_name = :first_name,
            last_name = :last_name"
       
);
       
$st->execute(array(
           
':first_name' => $vendor->first_name,
           
':last_name' => $vendor->last_name
       
));
    }
}

// In your bootstrap
$db = new PDO(...);
DataMapper::init($db);

// In your model logic
$vendor = new Vendor('John', 'Doe');
VendorMapper::add($vendor);

?>

Starting with PHP 5.4 you are unable to use persistent connections when you have your own database class derived from the native PDO class. If your code uses this combination, you will encounter segmentation faults during the cleanup of the PHP process.
You can still use _either_ a derived PDO class _or_ persistent connections.

For more information, please see this bug report: https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=63176

"And storing username/password inside class is not a very good idea for production code."

Good idea is to store database connection settings in *.ini files but you have to restrict access to them. For example this way:

my_setting.ini:
[database]
driver = mysql
host = localhost
;port = 3306
schema = db_schema
username = user
password = secret

Database connection:
<?php
class MyPDO extends PDO
{
    public function
__construct($file = 'my_setting.ini')
    {
        if (!
$settings = parse_ini_file($file, TRUE)) throw new exception('Unable to open ' . $file . '.');
       
       
$dns = $settings['database']['driver'] .
       
':host=' . $settings['database']['host'] .
        ((!empty(
$settings['database']['port'])) ? (';port=' . $settings['database']['port']) : '') .
       
';dbname=' . $settings['database']['schema'];
       
       
parent::__construct($dns, $settings['database']['username'], $settings['database']['password']);
    }
}
?>

Database connection parameters are accessible via human readable ini file for those who screams even if they see one PHP/HTML/any_other command.

Keep in mind, you MUST NOT use 'root' user in your applications, unless your application designed to do a database maintenance.

And storing username/password inside class is not a very good idea for production code. You would need to edit the actual working code to change settings, which is bad.

Here is an singleton PDO example:

###### config.ini ######
db_driver=mysql
db_user=root
db_password=924892xp

[dsn]
host=localhost
port=3306
dbname=localhost

[db_options]
PDO::MYSQL_ATTR_INIT_COMMAND=set names utf8

[db_attributes]
ATTR_ERRMODE=ERRMODE_EXCEPTION
############

<?php class Database {
    private static
$link = null ;

    private static function
getLink ( ) {
        if (
self :: $link ) {
            return
self :: $link ;
        }

       
$ini = _BASE_DIR . "config.ini" ;
       
$parse = parse_ini_file ( $ini , true ) ;

       
$driver = $parse [ "db_driver" ] ;
       
$dsn = "${driver}:" ;
       
$user = $parse [ "db_user" ] ;
       
$password = $parse [ "db_password" ] ;
       
$options = $parse [ "db_options" ] ;
       
$attributes = $parse [ "db_attributes" ] ;

        foreach (
$parse [ "dsn" ] as $k => $v ) {
           
$dsn .= "${k}=${v};" ;
        }

       
self :: $link = new PDO ( $dsn, $user, $password, $options ) ;

        foreach (
$attributes as $k => $v ) {
           
self :: $link -> setAttribute ( constant ( "PDO::{$k}" )
                ,
constant ( "PDO::{$v}" ) ) ;
        }

        return
self :: $link ;
    }

    public static function
__callStatic ( $name, $args ) {
       
$callback = array ( self :: getLink ( ), $name ) ;
        return
call_user_func_array ( $callback , $args ) ;
    }
}
?>

<?php // examples
$stmt = Database :: prepare ( "SELECT 'something' ;" ) ;
$stmt -> execute ( ) ;
var_dump ( $stmt -> fetchAll ( ) ) ;
$stmt -> closeCursor ( ) ;
?>
