ActiveDBLib is a PHP class to access MySQL or optionally other databases by using various Database Abstraction Libraries.

Its primary intention is to hide the differences between the different database abstraction Libraries and to provide standard methods for the database connection, query and result operations.

It currently supports the ADODB, the PEAR:DB and the Metabase libraries.

The only requirement to use one of those abstraction libraries is to include the one of your choice in your script. If no database abstraction library is included, the activeDBLib will act as a MySQL wrapper.

activeDBLib can be used in database based projects to provide the possibility of expanding the database type support without depending about which database abstraction library will be used.

This way MySQL, Access (ODBC), PostgreSQL, Oracle and other databases could be accessed by several database abstraction libraries using the same code in your application. You can easily switch databases and database abstraction libraries.

This way, not only the project can be database independent, but also be database abstraction library independent.
