The Reason not possible to make NO SQL in Prestashop

Recommended Posts

I want to show you the wrong method of coding in Prestashop.Please have a look db.php  .look there is an update function. this function do nothing specially .Whats its doing ? this function make a string that mySQL understand.there is some parameter each users want to use get parameters and make string.if you see third parameter is "Where" .Its getting a string from users.no care whats this string its going to append to the string in end of the string.This is not easy to understand whats this that we make No SQL.Imagine howmuch easy can make NO SQL.Look first line is table name.so its easy to understand and second is filds inside data base have data but third is not clear .this is open users hands however this is wrong way.Forth parameter is numeric and easy to understand and next is non value and ...........all others.


This "where" is every where its not easy to change all.

Hi George

I can not say that is too much wrong it is a way that class and function is made. Think it originate from earliest versions of PresstaShop.

It does not do anything special, just more convenient way to write update command. Note one SQL query can be done in

different ways. You can do update with  query function, with update or with DBQuery class



Example of use :

    public static function updateIsVirtual($id_product, $is_virtual = true)
        Db::getInstance()->update('product', array(
            'is_virtual' => (bool) $is_virtual,
        ), 'id_product = ' . (int) $id_product);


Note by default is is empty and it would not add anything to string.  Also if you are concern that you can add any text there, that is true. But that is developer job so he gets right result.

To me this is nor good or bad, it is like that and I personally did not use it much in this form. 


Now why it this so bad for you I can not say. You can post your code here where you have issues with No SQL. What it is missing for you and your query.

Do you get any error or missing parameter?  Please give more info on your code.


I did not work long time with MongoDB so think as this as my poor example to compare code. But previous code could be similar to

   { id_product: (int) $id_product },
      is_virtual: (bool) $is_virtual
   { upsert: true }


From https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/method/db.collection.update/ example.


So again give example of your code, if you can, where this update function brake or explain in your code how that 'where' parameter is blocking your progress.

Hi, why do you want to use NO SQL database for prestashop ?

Indeed prestashop is built to work with a SQL database, and I'm not even sure it can work with PostgreSQL (at least not at 1st attempt, it would need customisation) but that's quite usual.
