RDB Action Adapter for PloneFormGen

The Action Adapter can be used to store form submissions of PloneFormGen forms into a relations database.


The Action Adapter users the IDatabase Utility from collective.lead to write data to the database. You must provide such an IDatabase Utility.

Insert query

The query to insert data. We do not use the SQLAlchemy mapping features, but write data directly into the database. The fields from the form are added as a dictionary to the execute statement.

insert into test_questions (replyto, topic, comments) values(%(replyto)s, %(topic)s, %(comments)s);


insert into test_questions (replyto, topic, comments) values(:replyto, :topic, :comments);
Databae utility Name
