Schema::existsInDatabaseCheck if exists in database


public mysql_xdevapi\Schema::existsInDatabase(): bool

Checks if the current object (schema, table, collection, or view) exists in the schema object.


This function is currently not documented; only its argument list is available.


This function has no parameters.

Return Values

true if the schema, table, collection, or view still exists in the schema, else false.


Example #1 Schema::existsInDatabase example

= mysql_xdevapi\getSession("mysqlx://user:password@localhost");

$session->sql("DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS food")->execute();
$session->sql("CREATE DATABASE food")->execute();
$session->sql("CREATE TABLE food.fruit(name text, rating text)")->execute();

$schema = $session->getSchema("food");

// ...

$trees = $schema->getCollection("trees");

// ...

// Is this collection still in the database (schema)?
if ($trees->existsInDatabase()) {
"Yes, the 'trees' collection is still present.";

The above example will output something similar to:

Yes, the 'trees' collection is still present.
