ADOdb for Python

http://phplens.com/lens/adodb/adodb-py-docs.htm
ADOdb is a database abstraction library. ADOdb was originally developed for PHP, and ported to Python. The Python version implements a subset of the PHP version. You might ask why Python needs a database abstraction library when Python provides the official DB API. Unfortunately the DB API does not encapsulate differences in the database implementations. For example, to select a limited number of rows, say 10 rows, you would have to use very different SQL for different databases:

  • MS SQL select top 10 from table
  • MySQL and PostgreSQL select * from table limit 10
  • Oracle select * from (select * from table) where rownum <= 10
  • These differences are handled by ADOdb (using SelectLimit), but not by the Python DB API. Other important database differences transparently handled by ADOdb include date-formating, associative arrays (records as dictionaries) and LOB-handling.
