    Smile oh lord - another thread about which db abstraction is better

    as i (sarcastically) mentioned in the thread's title, i want to know which db abstraction package is best. i've done a fair bit of searching both on sitepoint and on the web and i still can't make up my mind

    i was pretty close to settling on ezsql but recently found a major problem with it: it copies full result sets into arrays rather than using the result set on the db server. this is obviously very bad for extremely large result sets

    pear:db and adodb both seem to have about as many enemies as they do fans but according to this benchmark test, adodb was consistently faster: http://phplens.com/lens/adodb/

    Eclipse by vincent oostindie has gotten the most consistent praise but the site is no longer live: http://www.students.cs.uu.nl/people/voostind/eclipse/
