Differences between ADOdb, ADO and PEAR

Oracle Tips by Burleson Consulting

Many times, people ask for feature by feature comparisons between software products such as packages and libraries. The comparisons found in this chapter are meant to answer these questions. They are taken directly from the ADOdb documentation without any comments or changes.  The impression is that PEAR DB is easier to use, yet ADOdb is more feature rich.  Both libraries are still in development and will present the best they can offer.

ADOdb 4.52

Table 5.1: Comparison of PEAR DB 1.6 and ADOdb 4.52 libraries


The ADOdb library has much better support for exceptions and PHP5. PEAR DB is still, essentially a PHP4 library, while ADOdb has full support for PHP5 features.
