Projects / Propel


Propel is an object persistence layer for PHP5 based on Apache Torque. In practical terms, it allows you to use objects instead of SQL to read and write rows in your database tables. It provides a generator that creates SQL definition files and PHP classes for your datamodel, and a runtime engine that transparently handles object persistence and retrieval. It makes it easy to customize generated classes; additionally, the use of XML, PHP classes, and the Phing build tool make it easy to integrate Propel with an existing application framework.
