PhpDtObject v. 0.01

Database table access classes for php. 

These classes simplifies the procedure, when trying to get information, edit, insert or delete 
rows from the database table. PhpDtObject makes an object from the table row or an object array if
multiple rows are returned from the table. Objects can also be created with init method, that 
passes primary key (usually id) and its value or by getOne / getMany methods where you can 
specify more complex searching criteria. Rows can be updated, deleted and new rows created with 
a simple method calls. 

By extending this class you have basic access to the database tables and you can concentrate 
to your own class functionality.

Classes are quite similar to Dao, but may be used for little different purposes. PhpDtObject 
uses ADOdb (database abstraction layer), so it requires ADOdb to be installed on server. ADOdb 
is a free set of php classes, that you can download from: http://php.weblogs.com/adodb
