Getting A Collection

Getting a collection has the same syntax as getting a database:

<?php
$connection 
= new MongoClient();
$db $connection->baz;

// select a collection:
$collection $db->foobar;

// or, directly selecting a database and collection:
$collection $connection->baz->foobar;
?>

A collection is analogous to a table (if you are familiar with relational databases).

If your collection uses dot notation, get it with MongoDB::selectCollection :

$colors = $db->selectCollection('my.colors');
