Gonzalo Ayuso has followed up his previous post about creating a simple SQL wrapper with PDO in PHP with this new post, a "part two" looking at improving it a bit with a new class to represent the tables.

In one of our last post we built a simple SQL wrapper with PHP. Now we are going to improve it a little bit. We area going to use a class Table instead of the table name. Why? Simple. We want to create triggers. OK we can create triggers directly in the database but sometimes our triggers need to perform operations outside the database, such as call a REST webservice, filesystem's logs or things like that.

He includes the updated code with the new "Table" class with methods that let you set up pre- and post-action hooks on each of the types (insert, delete, update) along with the rest of the library, there ready for the copy & pasting.
