MySQLi Support/Compatibility

Postby cyberws » Sun Jan 20, 2013 2:45 pm

Hello,

I was wondering if Xataface supports the MySQLi interface. The old MySQL connection protocols are considered outdated and support has been dropped. I did find old MySQL functions in the lib/mysql_functions.php file. Now is the time to start migrating over to the new connection protocols.

Thanks.

Respectfully,

Jeremy

Xataface still uses the mysql library. Since it is being deprecated, I will have to port everything over to mysqli. This shouldn't be hard, just incovenient.

Thanks for the update. I hear you there. I have slowly begun moving my programmed applications to MySQLi.

As you state it isn't hard just a small hassle, however that is programming. I know even many major applications like Wordpress still run the old MySQL connector. However in the not to distant future the standard MySQL connector will disappear. So it is time to start getting programs off MySQL and on to MySQLi before the disappearance of the old connector.

We still have time but better get move on this for all apps that use the old connection method.

This ant task can be used to crudely change all of the mysql_xxx calls to mysqli.
Code: Select all
<target name="convert-mysqli">
         <replace token="mysql_query" value="mysqli_query">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_fetch_row" value="mysqli_fetch_row">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_fetch_assoc" value="mysqli_fetch_assoc">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_fetch_object" value="mysqli_fetch_object">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_affected_rows" value="mysqli_affected_rows">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_connect" value="mysqli_connect">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_free_result" value="mysqli_free_result">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_escape_string" value="mysqli_real_escape_string">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_real_escape_string" value="mysqli_real_escape_string">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_error" value="mysqli_error">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_errno" value="mysqli_errno">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_fetch_array" value="mysqli_fetch_array">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_fetch_lengths" value="mysqli_fetch_lengths">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_num_rows" value="mysqli_num_rows">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_pconnect" value="mysqli_pconnect">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_insert_id" value="mysqli_insert_id">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_select_db" value="mysqli_select_db">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_data_seek" value="mysqli_data_seek">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_client_encoding" value="mysqli_character_set_name">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         <replace token="mysql_close" value="mysqli_close">
            <fileset dir="." includes="**/*.php"/>
         </replace>
         
         
   </target>


Of course, this (or something similar) would need to be run on all modules and application logic as well to remove all mysql_xxx references from the code.

For the actual solution, I will probably factor the calls out into a wrapper library to make it easier to, possibly, have to change the library again in the future.
