DevShed has posted the third and final part of their "Serializing Objects in PHP" series today with a focus on integrating all of their previous code with a MySQL database.
Provided that you've already grasped the key concepts about object serialization, in addition to implementing some advanced features, such as the ones I mentioned right at the beginning of this article, in this final installment of the series, I'll show you some examples of how to work with objects and sessions. I'll also show you how to use MySQL tables to keep your objects safe and healthy.
They briefly touch on the code from the previous part, showing how to automatically serialize the objects easily. With that in place, they illustrate how to expand upon it, to combine these objects with sessions to register/store/retrieve them. Finally, they cover taking these same objects and storing them to a database (MySQL), including an example of handling user information.
