Felix Geisendorfer's Blog:
Making error handling for Modelsave more beautiful in CakePHP
February 06, 2007 @ 10:05:00

In a new post to his blog today, Felix Geisendorfer shares a method to make error handling in the CakePHP model functionality a bit more "beautiful".

Now I've written actions like the one above in the past as well. It's just that I've not had many MySql errors since I've switched to CakePHP. The Model class usually handles all the DB operations flawlessly and it's probably been over a year that I've written a custom MySql statement in my code somewhere. However, even CakePHP or, what's more likely, the database can fail or deny operations.

He shows some code snippets of what he sees as less beautiful versions of database insertion code, methods that either don't check the response/errors or make a messy job of it. His solution works by returning the result into a switch statement to check the results and handling it there (versus a series of ifs). There's a class you'll need to make it work (Common), but he shows how to use it and creates a simple "add" example with it and a new Controller to handle the request.
