Is there a way to execute a SQL String as a query in Zend Framework?

I have a string like that:

$sql = "SELECT * FROM testTable WHERE myColumn = 5"

now I want to execute this string directly withput parsing it and creating a Zend_Db_Table_Select object from it "by hand". Or if thats possible create a Zend_Db_Table_Select object from this string, to execute that object.

How can I do that? I didn't find a solution for this in the Zend doc.

If you're creating a Zend_DB object at the start you can create a query using that. Have a look at this entry in the manual :

$stmt = $db->query(
            'SELECT * FROM bugs WHERE reported_by = ? AND bug_status = ?',
            array('goofy', 'FIXED')


$sql = 'SELECT * FROM bugs WHERE reported_by = ? AND bug_status = ?';
$stmt = new Zend_Db_Statement_Mysqli($db, $sql);
