Alright, on a PHP application/website of mine I will be loading some featured items, which will simply consist of urls, names, ids, and a few small descriptions..
But they will be reloaded constantly, every page, etc.. This isn't the only instance I have this
similar... situation ? , but what would be better here speed and performance wise..
The PHP SQLite class or the SimpleXML class ? I mean I guess it comes down to which one takes up less memory, but which one would operate faster for small bits of information ?
Currently I have an xml file storing all of my featured items and such for my site, then I use the SimpleXML class to retrieve all of this information and draw it onto the page. This is much better than requery-ing my database everytime.. but what about SQLite ?
SQLite seems like there is just more to it than some simple XML rendering, but I could be wrong ? It is pretty much just fopen with a different name.
If anything I'm going to implement SQLite for something, some smaller db operations I guess, but I'm not thinking it is the better solution here, but then again thats why I'm asking!
