romaSQL

This autoIt UDF is built on the concept of Laravel Query & doctrine.
RomaSQL provides a new, comfortable and easy to use way for SQL-queries in autoIt.
Most of the common SQL-queries are supported already and more are coming soon.
All of your support is much appreciated.

Connections
For the connection the object ADODB is used. Therefore the connection string is based on ODBC.
You can also use OLEDB connection strings or other database connections.
In order for this to work your add-ons have to be installed in the function: __4ern_SQL_Connection.
I’d be very glad if you shared your modifications with me.

Currently supported connections
-       MySQL (odbc)
-       Microsoft SQL Server (odbc)
-       SQLite (odbc)
-       Microsoft Access (odbc)

Command reference

$SQL_connect; establishing connection
$SQL_returnType; return a Array or Dictionary ('oDict') Object (Default = Array)
$SQL_setDefaultTable; Default Tablename
$SQL_setDefaultKey; Default Colmn Key (Default = id)
$SQL_debug; if True, show SQL Statment in Console

$SQL_get
$SQL_update
$SQL_delete
$SQL_insertInto
$SQL_take
$SQL_limit
$SQL_table
$SQL_select
$SQL_distinct

$SQL_where
$SQL_orWhere
$SQL_whereBetween
$SQL_whereNotBetween
$SQL_whereIn
$SQL_whereNotIn
$SQL_whereNull
$SQL_whereNotNull
$SQL_having
$SQL_orHaving
$SQL_havingBetween
$SQL_havingNotBetween
$SQL_havingIn
$SQL_havingNotIn
$SQL_havingNull
$SQL_havingNotNull
$SQL_groupBy
$SQL_orderBy

 

Examples

establishing connection

;-----/
; SQLite Connection
;-----/
$SQL_setDatabase('sqlite')
$SQL_connect('C:\project.db')

;-----/
; Access Connection
; Database, User, Password
;-----/
$SQL_setDatabase('access')
$SQL_connect('C:\project.mdb')
;or as Admin
$SQL_connect('C:\project.mdb', '4ern', 'root')

;-----/
; SQLServer Connection
; Database, User, Password, Server, Driver
;-----/
$SQL_setDatabase('sqlserver')
$SQL_connect('myDB', '4ern', 'root', 'localhost')
;or with Driver
$SQL_connect('myDB', '4ern', 'root', 'localhost', 'SQL Server')

;-----/
; MySQL Connection
; Database, User, Password, Server, Driver
;-----/
$SQL_setDatabase('mysql')
$SQL_connect('myDB', '4ern', 'root', 'localhost')
;or with Driver
$SQL_connect('myDB', '4ern', 'root', 'localhost', 'MySQL ODBC 5.2 UNICODE Driver')

 

simple SQL query

$SQL_table('albums')
$aRet = $SQL_get()

if IsArray($aRet ) then
    _ArrayDisplay($aRet )
else
    ConsoleWrite('Keine Ergebnisse' & @LF)
endif

 

Select

$SQL_table('albums')
$SQL_select('id', 'Name', 'Artist', 'Song')

;or pass to an Array
Local $aSelect = ['id', 'Name', 'Artist', 'Song']
$SQL_select($aSelect)

$aRet = $SQL_get()
if IsArray($aRet ) then
    _ArrayDisplay($aRet )
else
    ConsoleWrite('Keine Ergebnisse' & @LF)
endif

where

$SQL_table('albums')
$SQL_select('id', 'Name', 'Artist', 'Song', 'Votes')
$SQL_where('Artist', 'adele')
$SQL_where('Votes', '>=' ,'9')
$SQL_orWhere('Artist', '=' ,'Rag'n'Bone Man')

;or pass to an 2dArray
Local $aSelect = [['Artist','adele'],['Votes', '>=' ,'9']]
$SQL_where($aSelect)

$aRet = $SQL_get()
if IsArray($aRet ) then
    _ArrayDisplay($aRet )
else
    ConsoleWrite('Keine Ergebnisse' & @LF)
endif

 

If you need more examples, then tell me exactly what you need.

I hope you like my UDF and find some use for it.

I beg to strongly differ.

While this may seem simple to use for SQL newbies, I doubt you can create "serious" SQL queries this way, I mean in real-world applications. Simple queries don't need any of these glue functions and routine non-trivial queries become an horrible mess almost impossible to understand.

Further, it tends to teach newcomers an extremely limited grammar/dialect, instead of exposing the full power of SQL. In my book I call this totally counter-productive and utterly deceptive in the long run.

For instance, imagining you have all Laravel wrapped as AutoIt functions, how would the following (still simple and pretty readable) query translate?

create table T(date integer,test char);
insert into T
values (1,'clim'),(3,'clim'),(7,'amb'),(10,'amb'),(12,'xxx'),
(13,'clim'),(15,'clim'),(20,'clim'),(22,'amb'),(25,'amb');

select
    min(date) as fromdate,
    max(date) as enddate,
    test
from (--get closest preceeding different key
    select
        t.*,
        max(t2.date) as key2
    from
        t
        left join
        t t2
    on t2.date < t.date and t2.test != t.test
    group by t.date
)
group by key2

Nom think of 4 or 8 complex subqueries on 7-table joins...

Laziness never pays long term!

@mLipok  thx

@jchd Thank you for your feedback and forgive me my google Translater english, but I am a different opinion.

What are the reputable SQL query and what are simplistic? In my real applications, more than 90% of all SQL queries are rather simple.

I do not think so. I find the laravel prinizip much more clearly and for my SQL queries it is sufficient.

I agree with you. Newcomers should first learn sql before using these udf. This is similar to Javascript frameworks. But why can not I make life easier if I can sql already.

For subquery I have so far no solution, so you would have to actually execute a $ SQL_raw ('..').

You're telling me that it is simpler and clearer to write something like

$Sentence.Myself.Subject()
$Sentence.Verb("to be").Present.Person(1)
$Sentence.Negation.Absolute()
$Sentence.Verb("to convince").Participle.Past()
$Sentence.FinalPoint()
ConsoleWrite(SentenceBuild($Sentence) & @LF)

rather than

ConsoleWrite("I am not convinced." & @LF)

That may fit your mood or models but I dare to insist that this is counter-productive.

A non-trivial application can be a typical simple invoicing system, for instance. There you're likely to find a table of clients, a table of delivery locations, a table of invoicing addresses, a table of orders/invoices, a table of items, a table of items ordered (some delivered and some still pending delivery), a table of paiements associated to orders and invoices, and most probably some more tables to fit the real world (suppliers, stock management, ...)

I don't buy the idea that such a common application can use 90% of flat queries.

      I am trying to normalise a database to remove duplicate info. I am using SQLite Expert to design the database and test sql queries.
      The database is going to store information about setup installers, such as paths, installer specific info, users to install for, type and category of installer blah, blah.
      I have attached the database thus far and the tables function are as follows:-
      category - stores text describing the general usage the installer comes under, such as Browser, Compression etc. installer - this is the main table that has relationships with the other tables and stores info about the installer file, install order etc. installer_user - a link table. Stores the user or computer to install the program for or on. package - stores the type of installer, NSIS, Inno  Nullsoft etc. platform - the OS architecture the installer file is compiled for. postinstall - a list of activities to perform when the main install has finished. postinstall_user - a link table. Stores the users\computers that are allowed to run the post install actions user - a list of computers or usernames. I might separate into two tables, undecided yet. Now there wil be one program that deals with the installation side and another that acts as a front end for editing the database suchs as adding new files, removing old files etc.
      The idea with the editing side is to be able to delete an installer from the installer table say with the id of 1 and all other pertinent information in the other tables will also be deleted. The same goes for deleting a user. All the fields relating to that user will be removed.
      I have managed to get that part working for the most part. If I delete either a user or installer, the related info in the installer_user and postinstall tables are removed but since I added the postinstall_user table to link usernames to the postinstall action, this is where I get the foreign key error. If someone can explain why, I am sure it is an obvious reason for someone who knows what they are doing 😄
      Cheers

      Hi everyone,
      I am trying to make a script that runs a query and show it to me to see if everything is right and then decide if I finish it or not so I made a little script as below :
      #include <ADO.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> _ADO_EVENTS_SetUp(True) _ADO_ComErrorHandler_UserFunction(_ADO_COMErrorHandler) Local $sDriver = 'SQL Server' Local $sDatabase = 'DataBase' ; change this string to YourDatabaseName Local $sServer = 'Localhost' ; change this string to YourServerLocation Local $sConnectionString = 'DRIVER={' & $sDriver & '};SERVER=' & $sServer & ';DATABASE=' & $sDatabase & ';UID=' & ';PWD=' & ';' ;~ Global $Query = _ ;~ "BEGIN TRAN" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "UPDATE Table" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "SET HOUR = 4" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "SELECT * FROM Table" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ ;~ "ROLLBACK TRAN" Global $Query = _ "BEGIN TRAN" & @CRLF & _ "SELECT * FROM Table" & @CRLF & _ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ "ROLLBACK TRAN" _Query_Display($sConnectionString, $Query) Func _Query_Display($sConnectionString, $sQUERY) ; Create connection object Local $oConnection = _ADO_Connection_Create() ; Open connection with $sConnectionString _ADO_Connection_OpenConString($oConnection, $sConnectionString) If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, $ADO_RET_FAILURE) ; Executing some query directly to Array of Arrays (instead to $oRecordset) Local $aRecordset = _ADO_Execute($oConnection, $sQUERY, True) ; Clean Up _ADO_Connection_Close($oConnection) $oConnection = Null ; Display Array Content with column names as headers _ADO_Recordset_Display($aRecordset, 'Query Result') EndFunc ;==> _Query_Display When I ran this script it works great, but when I run the query below :
      Global $Query = _ "BEGIN TRAN" & @CRLF & _ "UPDATE Table" & @CRLF & _ "SET HOUR = 4" & @CRLF & _ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ "SELECT * FROM Table" & @CRLF & _ "WHERE CUST = 'TEST'" & @CRLF & _ "ROLLBACK TRAN" It doesn't show anything, when I take those begin and rollback it does what it should but still not showing me anything at all, is there a way around it that you know of?
      Thank you.

      So I am trying to implement an archive system of sorts for my (SQLite) DB app. I wrote a function to attach a separate (archive) DB and
      sync the columns with main DB. If archive DB file does not exist, create file with _SQLiteOpen then close the file (and thus connection) with SQLite_Close.
      This works as intended, however, after the create operation, all subsequent _SQLite_* functions returned a "Library misuse error".
      After a little digging I found the problem in the _SQLite_Close function: it clears the "last opened database" handle even when there still is a live
      DB connection open. All other functions then "think" there is no DB connection active. I hacked two functions in the UDF for a quick fix:

      In _SQLite_Close: Change
      ... $__g_hDB_SQLite = 0 __SQLite_hDel($__g_ahDBs_SQLite, $hDB) Return $iRval[0] to:
      $__g_hDB_SQLite = __SQLite_hDel($__g_ahDBs_SQLite, $hDB) Return $iRval[0] and in Func __SQLite_hDel changed
      Func __SQLite_hDel(ByRef $ahLists, $hGeneric) Local $iElement = _ArraySearch($ahLists, $hGeneric) If $iElement > 0 Then _ArrayDelete($ahLists, $iElement) EndFunc ;==>__SQLite_hDel to:
      Func __SQLite_hDel(ByRef $ahLists, $hGeneric) Local $iElement = _ArraySearch($ahLists, $hGeneric) If $iElement > 0 Then _ArrayDelete($ahLists, $iElement) Return $ahLists[UBound($ahLists)-1] ; Return last opened db EndIf Return 0 EndFunc ;==>__SQLite_hDel so it preserves last opened DB again.
       
      My archive function now works great
      I'm not sure if this should be classified as a bug, but I believe so...
      Hope this helps someone before
