$session->sql("DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS addressbook")->execute();
$session->sql("CREATE DATABASE addressbook")->execute();
$session->sql("CREATE TABLE addressbook.names(name text, age int)")->execute();
$session->sql("INSERT INTO addressbook.names values ('John', 42), ('Sam', 33)")->execute();

$schema = $session->getSchema("addressbook");
$table  = $schema->getTable("names");
