Before the introduction of PHP 4 OOP in PHP was not at all possible but after its introduction in PHP 4 and more advancement in PHP 5, the users are making full use of it and other programmer who thought PHP to be difficult are now actually enjoying it.

Querying Data using the PreparedStatement Object

Posted by on Saturday, April 14, 2012
Consider a scenario where a New Publishers, a pubhlishing company maintains information about the books and the authors in a database. The company wants an application using which they cab access the information about authors based on different criteria. For Example, it should retain all authors living in a city specified at runtime. In this scenario, we cannot use Statement object to retrieve information because the value needs to be specified at the runtime. We need to use the PreparedStatement object as it can accept runtime parameters.

The PreparedStatement interface is derived from Statement interface and  is available in the java.sql package. 

The PreparedStatement objects are compiled and prepared only once by JDBC.

Using HighCharts with php , MySQL and CodeIgniter

Posted by on Saturday, April 14, 2012
Highcharts is a charting library which helps to display interactive Javascript charts on webpages. But our tutorial is how to make use of Highcharts with php, MySQL and CodeIgniter. 

While working on a project I found out that HighCharts is the best to display graphs on webpage as it has less overhead and requires less space. But the biggest challenge was to implement it using php  and not jQuery. We will implement it using MVC pattern as CodeIgniter follows the same.

Here is how we will be going about leaning this :

1. We will need HighCharts Library for CodeIgniter and HighChart config file. That we have defined below. (library is pretty long)
2. We will be making Models, Controllers and Views to display the Chart taking the values from MySQL. (if you want to check controllrt, model and view then directly go to the end)
