NestedSetDbTable is a abstract class that provides API for managing some table which has data that is organized in "Nested set model" manner. Developers should extend this class in order to create a model that will be interface to some of your database tables. There are two versions of this class in this package. First one is for general PHP applications, and it can be used as a 3rd Party in some project. Its files are stored in NestedSetDbTable/libs/GlobalVersion. Other version is made for Zend Framework based applications, and it is stored in NestedSetDbTable/libs/ZFversion. AUTHOR ------ Nikola Posa <firstname.lastname@example.org> INSTALLATION ------------ 1. As mentioned above, there are two versions NestedSetDbTable class in this package. You should choose what version do you need, and after that, you should use NestedSetDbTable folder from one of those two folders (GlobalVersion or ZFversion) in your project. 2. Another step you should do is to put folder, in which you've stored NestedSetDbTable dir, in include path. Here's an example of how to do that: set_include_path('.' . PATH_SEPARATOR . 'path/to/libs' . PATH_SEPARATOR . get_include_path()); ... where "libs" is name of the folder where you've stored NestedSetDbTable dir. FEATURES -------- * API for managing database table, which has data that is organized in "Nested set model" manner, * Methods for implementing Nested set model, * getTree() method gets whole tree, including depth information, * insertNode() method enables adding new node at desired position in tree hierarchy, * updateNode() method enables updating data of some node, including its position in tree hierarchy, * deleteNode() method is used for deleting nodes, and it has option for deleting only desired node (without its child nodes), or deleting its child nodes as well, * Capability to define additional SQL WHERE clause that will be used as additional condition in process of preparing, adding and updating of tree hierarchy, * Global version of this class, has also PDO-based database adapter provided along with its package. There's also interface for creating custom database adapter, to be used for your NestedSetDbTable model. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS ------------------- Both versions of NestedSetDbTable package requires PHP 5 or later. If you wish to use default database adapter in Global version of this package, PDO extension must be enabled in your PHP installation. Zend Framework version should be used only in some Zend Framework based project, and in that case, this link is the right place to find out more about the requirements: http://framework.zend.com/manual/en/requirements.html.
