XDominion for GO v0

The XDominion library is used to build object instead of queries to access any database. Queries are build on demand based on the type of database. Do not write queries anymore, but use objects.

Because you need to compile, add the database drivers directly into the code, XDominion support only posgresql in this version. More databases will be supported later.

XDominion is the Go adaptation of PHP7-Dominion libraries: a full database abstraction layer


  • text, float, time, date, lob fields
  • Joins
  • Sub Queries
  • Group and report functions
  • Synchro to upgrade DB tables and fields
  • Oracle, Informix, Mongo, other DBs


  1. Overview

XDominion is a database abstraction layer, to build and use objects of data instead of building SQL queries. The code is portable between databases with changing the implementation, since you don't use direct incompatible SQL sentences.

The library is build over 3 main objects:

  • XBase: database connector and cursors to build queries and manipulation language
    • Other included objects: XCursor
  • XTable: the table definition, data access function/structures and definition manipulation language
    • Other included objects: XField*, XConstraints, XContraint, XOrderby, XConditions, XCondition
  • XRecord: the results and data to interchange with the database
    • Other included objects: XRecords


Some code to start working:

Creates the connector to the database and connect:

  base := &xdominion.XBase{
    DBType: xdominion.DB_Postgres,
    Username: "username",
    Password: "password",
    Database: "test",
    Host: xdominion.DB_Localhost,
    SSL: false,

Executes a query:

  q, err := base.Exec("drop table test")
  if (err != nil) {

Creates a table definition:

t := xdominion.NewXTable("test", "t_")
t.AddField(xdominion.XFieldInteger{Name: "f1", Constraints: xdominion.XConstraints{
                                                  xdominion.XConstraint{Type: xdominion.PK},
                                                  xdominion.XConstraint{Type: xdominion.AI},
                                               } })   // ai, pk
t.AddField(xdominion.XFieldVarChar{Name: "f2", Size: 20, Constraints: xdominion.XConstraints{
                                                  xdominion.XConstraint{Type: xdominion.NN},
                                               } })
t.AddField(xdominion.XFieldText{Name: "f3"})
t.AddField(xdominion.XFieldDate{Name: "f4"})
t.AddField(xdominion.XFieldDateTime{Name: "f5"})
t.AddField(xdominion.XFieldFloat{Name: "f6"})

Synchronize the table with DB (create it if it does not exist)

  err = t.Synchronize()
  if (err != nil) {

Some Insert:

  res1, err := tb.Insert(xdominion.XRecord{"f1": 1, "f2": "Data line 1",})
  if (err != nil) {
  fmt.Println(res1)  // res1 is the primary key

With an error (f2 is mandatory based on table definition):

  res21, err := tb.Insert(xdominion.XRecord{"f1": 2, "f3": "test",})
  if (err != nil) {

General query (select ALL):

  res3, err := tb.Select()
  if err != nil {
  } else {
    for _, x := range res3.(xdominion.XRecords) {

Query by Key:

  res4, err := tb.Select(1)
  if err != nil {
  } else {
    switch res4.(type) {
      case xdominion.XRecord:
      case xdominion.XRecords:
        for _, x := range res4.(xdominion.XRecords) {

Query by Where:

  res5, err := tb.Select(xdominion.XConditions{xdominion.NewXCondition("f1", "=", 1), xdominion.NewXCondition("f2", "like", "lin", "and")})
  if err != nil {
  } else {
    switch res5.(type) {
      case xdominion.XRecord:
      case xdominion.XRecords:
        for _, x := range res5.(xdominion.XRecords) {


tx, err := base.BeginTransaction()
res1, err := tb.Insert(XRecord{"f1": 5, "f2": "Data line 1"}, tx)
res2, err := tb.Update(2, XRecord{"f1": 5, "f2": "Data line 1"}, tx)
res3, err := tb.Delete(3, tx)
// Note that the transaction is always passed as a parameter to the insert, update, delete operations
if err != nil {
  return err

Version Changes Control

v0.4.0 - 2021-12-10

  • Now all the xtable functions (Select, Update, Delete, Count, etc) can accept pointers parameters and nil casted parameters (for instance *XCondition or *XOrderBy than can be nil too).

v0.3.3 - 2021-01-20

  • Correction to support nil transactions (no transaction even if the parameter is passed with a nil value) into select type queries (select, min, max, avg, count, ...)
