Build Status

DDBC is DB Connector for D language (similar to JDBC)

Currently supports MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite.

// creating Statement
auto stmt = conn.createStatement();

// reading DB

Sample of easy reading from DB using PODs support:

import ddbc.core;
import ddbc.common;
import ddbc.drivers.sqliteddbc;
import ddbc.pods;
import std.stdio;

// prepare database connectivity
auto ds = new ConnectionPoolDataSourceImpl(new SQLITEDriver(), "ddbctest.sqlite");
auto conn = ds.getConnection();
scope(exit) conn.close();
Statement stmt = conn.createStatement();
scope(exit) stmt.close();
// fill database with test data
stmt.executeUpdate("DROP TABLE IF EXISTS user");
stmt.executeUpdate("CREATE TABLE user (id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, name VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL, flags int null)");
stmt.executeUpdate(`INSERT INTO user (id, name, flags) VALUES (1, "John", 5), (2, "Andrei", 2), (3, "Walter", 2), (4, "Rikki", 3), (5, "Iain", 0), (6, "Robert", 1)`);

// our POD object
struct User {
    long id;
    string name;
    int flags;

writeln("reading all user table rows");
foreach(ref e; stmt.select!User) {
    writeln("id:", e.id, " name:", e.name, " flags:", e.flags);

writeln("reading user table rows with where and order by");
foreach(ref e; stmt.select!User.where("id < 6").orderBy("name desc")) {
    writeln("id:", e.id, " name:", e.name, " flags:", e.flags);

writeln("reading all user table rows, but fetching only id and name (you will see default value 0 in flags field)");
foreach(ref e; stmt.select!(User, "id", "name")) {
    writeln("id:", e.id, " name:", e.name, " flags:", e.flags);
