how can we use $resource = Mage::getSingleton('core/resource'); $readConnection = $resource->getConnection('core_read'); $tableName = $resource->getTableName('sales/order'); in magento2?

What is the replacement of core/resource in magento2? I have tried with \Magento\Framework\Setup\SchemaSetupInterface but its not instantiating in block or model classes.

\Magento\Framework\App\ResourceConnection is analog for 'core/resource' alias.

Pay attention on:

  • M2 don't have separation on read/write connection, so use $resource->getConnection('default');

  • M2 don't use aliases for table names, so use $resource->getTableName('sales_order');
