Database interaction utilities for the SPARC platform

Project Description

Database interaction utilities for the SPARC platform.

SQL Databases
Interactions to SQL databases are provided via SQLAlchemy (
In addition, z3c.saconfig ( is
provided to allow connection configuration andintegration of SQLAlchemy in ZCA.

### Usage - SQLite memory DB connection
These steps will give you access to a SQLAlchemy session, see the SQLAlchemy
docs to understand how to interact with this object.
>>> import sparc.db
>>> from sparc.common import Configure
>>> from zope.component import getUtility
>>> from z3c.saconfig.interfaces import IEngineFactory, IScopedSession
>>> Configure((sparc.db, 'memory.zcml',))
>>> myEngine = getUtility(IEngineFactory, name="memory_engine")
>>> mySession = getUtility(IScopedSession, name="memory_session")

The above example gives access to a in-memoery SQLite instance. In practice,
you would create your own db.zcml with the appropriate connection information.
See SAConfig documentation on how to create the ZCML configu file.
