BuBOL Publisher's description
from Russ Collier
BuBOL is a framework of PHP classes to simplify and speed up development of custom web-based forum/bulletin board software.
BuBOL - Bulletin Board Object Library - is a framework of PHP classes to simplify and speed up development of custom web-based forum/bulletin board software, and also make it easier to integrate forums with 3rd party CMS applications.
BuBOL is implemented in PHP5 to take advantage of the improved object model.
The goal of BuBOL is to provide a higher level of abstraction for accessing bulletin-board related objects and data. It provides an abstracted persistence layer - based loosely on PEAR::DB - to support multiple database vendors and possibly other forms of persistence in the future (flat file, XML, etc.).
Ideally a client application of BuBOL would never need to use any direct SQL commands for the bulletin-board related data.
