Chordbook Database

RDB database with scripting support

Chordbook is an interactive guitar resource created by Soulbat.

Soulbat required a guitar chord database, which had to be accessible from a Flash client.

There were three main strands of work:

  1. The design of a compact, extensible, scalable RDB database.
  2. The Flash interface - reusable Actionscript functions that use PHP to talk to the database.
  3. PHP scripts - to facilitate Flash-to-RDB communication and general database administration.

This section looks at the database design.
