Executing Stored Procedures and Functions From PHP in Windows (cont’d)

Posted: October 1, 2009 in MYSQL

Calling Stored Procedures from PHP
To call MySQL stored procedures and functions from PHP, you need the following database extensions:

After installing those extensions, you’ll be able to call MySQL stored procedures and functions from PHP. As mentioned earlier, stored procedures and functions in MySQL are associated with a specific database. The examples in this section use a books database created using this SQL statement:

create table bookstore
(id int not null auto_increment primary key,
book varchar(50),
author varchar(50),
isbn varchar(50),
price int);

The SQL statements used to populate the bookstore table from Figure 1 are:

INSERT INTO bookstore (id,book,author,isbn,price) VALUES
(1,”Introduction to PHP”,”Mark User”,”3334-4424-334-3433″,500)
INSERT INTO bookstore (id,book,author,isbn,price) VALUES
(2,”DHTML and CSS”,”Teague Sanders”,”4545-23-23-23-23232″,1500)
INSERT INTO bookstore (id,book,author,isbn,price) VALUES
(3,”Introduction to PHP”,”Weeling Tom”,”4334-2323-23233-434″,300)
INSERT INTO bookstore (id,book,author,isbn,price) VALUES
(4,” Web design”,” Weeling Tom”,” 4334-2323-23233-434″,600)
INSERT INTO bookstore (id,book,author,isbn,price) VALUES
(5,” PHP 5″,” Weeling Tom”,” 444-87-67665-678678″,600)
INSERT INTO bookstore (id,book,author,isbn,price) VALUES
(6,” JavaServer Pages”,” Tick Own”,” 897-9898-987-099″,800)

Call Stored Procedures Using the MySQL Database Extension

The MySQL database extension gives you access to the MySQL database server. You install the php_mysql.dll like any other extension. You can find more information about the MySQL functions here.

First, you need a simple stored procedure. This one, called proc, selects all the fields in the bookstore table created earlier.

SELECT * from bookstore;

The following PHP script connects to the MySQL server, selects the books database, calls the proc stored procedure, which has no arguments, and outputs the result:

//Create the connecting to MySQL
$con = mysql_connect('localhost','root','',false,65536);

//Call the proc() procedure
$result= mysql_query("CALL proc();")
or die(mysql_error());

//Output the result
while($row = mysql_fetch_row($result))
echo $row[$i]."
echo “—“;
//Close the connection

Author’s Note: Using the syntax $con = mysql_connect(‘localhost’,’root’,”); will not work, because to return a result set from a stored procedure to PHP, you must use either the multiple-statements connect option or the multiple-results option (or both). If the routine does not return a result set, neither option is required.

The output is:

1—Introduction to PHP—Mark User—3334-4424-334-3433—500——–
2—DHTML and CSS—Teague Sanders—4545-23-23-23-23232—1500——-
3—Introduction to PHP—Weeling Tom—4334-2323-23233-434—300—–
4—Web design—Weeling Tom—4334-2323-23233-434—600———
5—PHP 5—Weeling Tom—444-87-67665-678678—600———
6—JavaServer Pages—Tick Own—897-9898-987-099—800———

Here’s a procedure example, named total_price, calculates the total of the price field from the bookstore table. It uses an OUT parameter to hold the total:

CREATE PROCEDURE total_price ( OUT total int)
SELECT sum(price) into total from bookstore;

The following PHP script calls the total_price procedure and displays the result using the OUT parameter total, which is an int:

The output is:

The total price is = 4300

Calling Stored Functions Using the MySQL Extension

To illustrate making stored function calls here’s a simple stored function:

CREATE FUNCTION simple_operation (price int) RETURNS int(11)
RETURN price*1000

The simple_operation function takes an integer argument, makes a simple calculation and returns an integer.

The output is:

The total price is = 5000

  3. good evening friends

    I last week stumbled into a website. they are listing some discounted italian clothes. the online shop is selling the goods with nearly 65% discounts. my wife really liked to get a pair before the weekend but not confident that order is going to be brought in right on time. I am thinking to get those prada shoes but not sure yet.

    I stand here today humbled by the task before dofus kamas, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our cheap dofus kamas. I thank President dofus power leveling for his service to buy dofus kamas, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.

  5. I tend not to make comments on websites, but your thread was really stimulating and encouraged myself to do tons of research on Acai supplements. I discovered that if taken the right way, Acai Supplements will likely have a healthy effect on your colon and digestive system.
