Example 265. Declaring a table class with just the string name

$bugTable = new Zend_Db_Table('bug');

The above example represents the simplest of use cases. Make not of all the options describe below for configuring Zend_Db_Table tables. If you want to be able to use the concrete usage case, in addition to the more complex relationhip features, see the Zend_Db_Table_Definition documentation.
