Database flexibility with Laravel

Database flexibility with Laravel

Laravel is an open source PHP framework that is available as a free download. It has been developed using the Model-View-Controller architecture (MVC). Laravel is currently one of the most popular PHP frameworks around, but is has not always been this way. There are many PHP frameworks like Code Ignitor, Symphony, CakePHP to name a few. Laravel was released fairly recently and has climbed to the top in a very short span of time. It is very feature rich with a special authentication module to ensure highly secure websites.

Introduction to how Laravel handles a database

Laravel supports MySQL, Postgres, SQLite, SQL server. With a special module to handle the database, it is extremely easy to handle the database. With Laravel it is possible to use raw SQL, fluent query builder and Eloquent ORM.

It is possible to use Pivot table to create your database. In general Pivot tables are generally used for data visualizations programs like spreadsheets etc. The many-to-many data model is more popular when developing websites. This uses the many-to-many relationship between two entities.

Laravel give you the flexibility of using either pivot tables and many-to-many relationships; these are handled with the Eloquent ORM module. Hence, with laravel there is no need to create any special module to handle an intermediate table.

Using a database with Laravel is quite straightforward. It allows the use of several databases mentioned above via a common set of commands and structure that is defined in the database module of Laravel. It is as simple as configuring the database with the database name and authentication details and implementing the database SQL commands. Since Laravel uses the MVC structure it implements model based queries. The syntax of a database like MySql is not directly implemented, instead smart queries are used that are model based.

There are many benefits of using smart queries, one of the main one being that these queries remain the same no matter which database is being implemented. With Laravel it also becomes easy to handle exceptions on the database queries as well.
