This is the Zend App Lifecycle intro
Lists the db2_ APIs documented in php.net Note: System i application developers should avoid use of APIs denoted with a red box. The reason is that the use of this API is less efficient or performs more slowly than another available option. For example, avoid the use of db2_exec, especially if the statement is being executed multiple times in the application. Instead, use db2_prepare to prepare the statement once using parameter markers, then execute the prepared statement using the db2_execute API.
