PHP, The X Devapi, and the MySQL Document Store

By: Dave Stokes

MySQL can now be used as a NoSQL JSON Document Store without the need for embedding ugly strings of Structured Query Language in your beautiful PHP code. The CRUD functions follow modern programming designs and are the same across all the supported languages (Node.JS, Java, C++,Python, JS, and PHP) and the protocol greatly reduces the threat of SQL injection. Oh and all this also works with good old SQL tables so you get the best of both worlds.
