Expand description

A database backend

This trait represents the concept of a backend (e.g. “MySQL” vs “SQLite”). It is separate from a Connection to that backend. One backend may have multiple concrete connection implementations.

Implementations of this trait should not assume details about how the connection is implemented. For example, the Pg backend does not assume that libpq is being used. Implementations of this trait can and should care about details of the wire protocol used to communicated with the database.

Associated Types

The concrete QueryBuilder implementation for this backend.

The concrete BindCollector implementation for this backend.

Most backends should use RawBytesBindCollector.

The raw representation of a database value given to FromSql.

Since most backends transmit data as opaque blobs of bytes, this type is usually [u8].

What byte order is used to transmit integers?

This type is only used if RawValue is [u8].
