New enhancement in the old pattern

I gone through one of my old project. Some of the points I noticed to enhance and simplify the code.

-Combine methods into single method to achieve the same fuctionality.

As we are using the PEAR DB package to query to database. I thought to have a map of all the queries into any Array .

Steps I will follow to achieve the same is

-Create Map of queries

$queryMap = array (“getPerson”=>”SELECT * FROM person WHERE personID = “, “getPersonList”=>”SELECT * FROM person”)

-One method which will just run query and returns its output

function getData($query, $ID=0)
$result = $db->query(queryMap[$query].” “.$ID);
return $db->fetchRow();
function getAllData($query)
return $result = $db->getAll(queryMap[$query]);


I will be implementing it in my new project.
