Which API I should use?

Postby skyvic » Thu Mar 29, 2012 2:54 am

what is the different between PHP platform API and Database API ? Basically I need a standalone WURFL API and database to manage my platform by using PHP . So which one should I choose?

Hi skyvic,

The PHP API and Database API are both PHP-based APIs, but they came from two different places (PHP API from the WURFL Project, DB API from Tera-WURFL). Both APIs are fully supported and kept up-to-date. The performance is similar between the APIs, but the setup on the DB API is a little easier if you are used to PHP packages (although we are working on simple examples for the PHP API as well). Also, the Database API has a web administration interface that you may find helpful.

If you don't want to use MySQL, MongoDB or MSSQL, you can use the PHP API, as it does not require a database to function.

Does this help?
