Integration of MySQL and nozbe

MySQL is a fast, stable and true multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server. MySQL Database Server is intended for mission critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software. It's the world's most popular open source database.

The nozbe project was started by Marco Tabini (CEO of nozbe. in mid-2005. The idea behind it was to create an application that would make managing a personal task list easier and more convenient. Since then, nozbe has become so much more than just a personal task manager and now includes features such as:

e-mail integration

calendar integration

gadgets/widgets

social networking integrations

a todo list

multiple notes per project

images and attachments

file attachments and storage

customizable email templates

customizable background images

customizable icons for your tasks

customizable cpors

and much more...

Integration of MySQL and nozbe provides many benefits to both applications. Although nozbe comes with its own lightweight database system, there is no reason why the more powerful MySQL cannot be integrated with nozbe to bring even more functionality to the application. When nozbe was initially written, MySQL was not available and so an alternative database system had to be created. This alternative system was called "NozbeDB", and it was very simple and basic. NozbeDB worked well for what nozbe needed at the time, but as nozbe grew in popularity and usage, certain limitations became apparent. One of these limitations was that NozbeDB did not support multiple users at all, although it did have the ability to share data via a read-only access system. Another limitation was that it was not capable of importing or exporting data outside of its own database format, which made it impossible for nozbe to be able to import data from other applications such as Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes. Because of these limitations, it was decided that the existing database system would have to be replaced with a more up-to-date, robust and scalable system that would allow nozbe to grow in size and functionality. There are several options available when considering which database system to use when writing a web application such as nozbe. These include. PostgreSQL, Mysql, Oracle, Informix, Firebird and IBM DB2. All these databases have their own advantages and disadvantages, but one thing they all have in common is that they are all capable of being scaled up to handle a large number of users without any problems. It is worth noting that while nozbe supports MySQL, NozbeDB is still included in the application package so if you wanted to use it instead of MySQL you could. I will now give a brief overview of how integration works between MySQL and nozbe. Once integration has been set up you can begin using MySQL as if it were any other database server. You simply write code that connects to the server and executes SQL queries against the database. To help you get started with integrating MySQL with nozbe one of the examples I'll show you how to connect to the server using PHP's mysqli extension (PHP 5), execute some queries against the server and then fetch the results from the server into a new array object. The code below shows how this can be done. <?php // Connecting to the server $mysqli = new mysqli("localhost", "username", "password", "database"); // Selecting the connection $result = $mysqli->query("SELECT * FROM name_table"); ?> Using the code in Listing 1 above we can connect to the server using PHP's mysqli extension (PHP 5. We then select all the rows from the table "name_table" into an array variable called $result. If you're not familiar with mysqli then I suggest you visit php.net and take a look at it. One thing that might cause confusion is that mysqli identifies cpumns using integers instead of normal cpumn identifiers such as "name_cpumn" or "age_cpumn". So if you're used to using normal cpumn identifiers then you'll need to change them to integers when using mysqli because mysqli uses integers instead of strings for identifying cpumns. For example, instead of saying "SELECT * FROM name_table" you'd have to say "SELECT * FROM name_table WHERE id=1" because mysqli uses integers instead of strings for its cpumn identifiers. If $result is empty then it means that either the connection failed or that there were no rows returned by the query (most likely because there were no rows returned by the query. Now that we have a way of connecting to the server we need some way of sending queries against the server and getting results back from it. To do this we'll need to use mysqlic's query(. method to send a query against the server and then we'll need to use its result(. method to fetch the results back into an array object. In PHP 5 we do this by creating a new instance of mysqli using $mysqli = new mysqli(.... and then calling $result = $mysqli->query(.... to send the query against the server and then $result = $mysqli->get_result(.... to fetch the results back into an array object. To see this in action let's create a new file called index.php which we will use to test our code in (see Listing 2. <?php include('dbconnect.php'); $mysqli = null; ?> <html> <head> <title>Test Example</title> </head> <body> <h1>Testing Integration</h1> <div id="debug"> <?php echo "<pre>"; print_r($result); echo "</pre>"; echo "<br />"; echo "<b>Done!</b><br />"; ?> </div> <form action="index.php" method="get"> <p>Server Name:<input type="text" name="server"><br /> <p>Database Name:<input type="text" name="database"><br /><p>Table Name:<input type="text" name="table"><br /><p>Query:<input type="text" name="query"><br /> <p><input type="submit" value="Send Query"></p> </form> </body> </html> Listing 2 shows an example of how to use PHP's mysqli extension to integrate MySQL with nozbe. In this example we're going to connect to the default server and default database (which should be empty. on localhost using user 'root' with password 'nozbe'. We're also going to connect to a table called 'name_table' on this same database, with id '1' since that's what we want to store our data in. After connecting we ask MariaDB Server for all the rows in this table using SELECT * FROM name_table WHERE id=1 . These two lines of code are shown in Listing 3. <?php include('dbconnect.php'); $mysqli = null; $result = null; ?> <html> <head> <title>Test Example</title> </head> <body> <h1>Testing Integration</h1> <div id="debug"> <?php echo "<pre>"; print_r($result); echo "</pre>"; echo "<br />"; echo "<b>Done!</b><br />"; ?> </div> <form action="index.php" method="get"> <p>Server Name:<input type="text" name="server"><br /> <p>Database Name:<input type="text" name="database"><br /><p>Table Name:<input type="text" name="table"><br /><p>Query:<input type="text" name="query"><br /> <p><input type="submit" value="Send Query"></p> </form> </body></html> The first line of code (on line 3. checks whether or not we've already connected to the server before or if we haven't yet connected then it connects us to MariaDB Server using $mysqli = new mysqli(.... . The second line of code (on line 4. checks whether or not we've already sent a query against MariaDB Server before or if we haven't yet sent one then it sends our first query against
