We have a large database of mobile phone offers. This database has 5 tables. Its structure and a small sample of data is in the attached zip. What we want developed is some php code which will take a natural language query and create the correct SQL statement joining all the tables (pulling all fields) and selecting only the appropriate records. Examples of natural language queries are as follows: "phones on vodafone" "Nokia phones on vodafone" "Nokia N70 on orange" "Nokia N70 on orange or vodafone" "Nokia N70" "Nokia N70 or Blackberry 7100t on vodafone" "Nokia N70 or Blackberry 7100t" "Nokia or motorola on Vodafone" "N70 on orange" All of these examples, and more, should generate sql. You would need to be clever in determining what is a phone make, phone model, phone make and model combination and network. We would advise looking at the db structure before bidding.
