Database Abstraction Questions

Contributed by Anonymous on Oct 24, 2001 - 10:44 AM

1. Why Pear? I've also heard really good things about the ADODB Library.

2. Was any performance testing done? What kind of hit are we going to take on database calls. I've seen some benchmarks showing pear with a 150% overhead with ADODB much closer to native MySQL.

Just wondering what the rationale was for using Pear over ADODB or other alternatives. Thanks
