Platform to ensure compatibility of Doctrine with Microsoft SQL Server 2005
version and higher.
Differences to SQL Server 2008 are:
- DATETIME2 datatype does not exist, only DATETIME which has a precision of 3.
This is not supported by PHP DateTime, so we are emulating it by setting .000
- Starting with SQLServer2005 VARCHAR(MAX), VARBINARY(MAX) and NVARCHAR(max)
replace the old TEXT, NTEXT and IMAGE types. See http://www.sql-server-helper.com/faq/sql-server-2005-varchar-max-p01.aspx
for more information.
