Eric Peterson
Mar 12, 2018

 

Quick announcement today about qb. We're excited to announce that starting with version 5.1.0, QB has full query and schema builder support for four major database grammars:

  • Microsoft SQL Server (MSSQLGrammar)
  • MySQL (MySQLGrammar)
  • Oracle (OracleGrammar)
  • Postgres (PostgresGrammar)

Set your preferred grammar in your moduleSettings and you are good to go:

moduleSettings = {
    qb = {
        defaultGrammar = "PostgresGrammar"
    }
};

Install or update today from ForgeBox.

Haven't heard about qb? qb is a Query and Schema Builder for CFML. With it you can write object-oriented, database agnostic SQL statements in a convenient and friendly format.

// Query Builder
query.from('posts')
    .whereNotNull('published_at')
    .whereIn('author_id', [5, 10, 27])
    .get();

// Schema Builder
schema.create( "users", function( table ) {
    table.increments( "id" );
    table.string( "email" );
    table.string( "password" );
    table.timestamp( "created_date" ).default( "CURRENT_TIMESTAMP" );
    table.timestamp( "modified_date" ).default( "CURRENT_TIMESTAMP" );
    table.timestamp( "last_logged_in" ).nullable();
} );

Want more information? Check out the comprehensive documentation.
