I need to store some configuration information about my extension in database. Initially I thought of having a new table to store those. Then I found out that CiviCRM gives that feature. Here is its tip:
When I was calling CRM_Core_DAO::executeQuery() it gave error. I don't have any idea what went wrong. Not sure whether the SQL statement was correct or not. After searching for some time I found one function, composeQuery() in CRM_Core_DAO. It can be used to verify SQL query.

Zyxware Technologies has developed and contributed CiviWCI (CiviCRM Widget Creation
Interface) to the Free Software Foundation to assist in the fund raising campaign that FSF is launching in Dec 2014. The extension is expected to help FSF create “Donate Now” and “Join Now” widgets (fund raising and newsletter subscription) that can be embedded on any site that wishes to support FSF. This extension will replace the earlier widget system used by FSF. Through this contribution, Zyxware once again reaffirms its commitment to Free Software and the community around Free Software.
