DevShed:
The LIKE Clause and the Active Record Pattern
Mar 24, 2009 @ 13:07:39

DevShed continues their look at the Active Record pattern with the next part of their seven part series - extending their MySQL class even further.

In its current incarnation, this class's functionality is limited, regardless of its decent level of SQL abstraction. Therefore, in this fourth part of the series I’m going to enhance it by making it capable of working with LIKE clauses in a straightforward way.

They look at using LIKE to match values in various columns of the tables and add in a fetchLike method that lets you specify the column to search, the pattern to match on and the table to search in.
