From the mailing list:
I'm using DBAL 2.1 with Oracle and it appears that if I call prepare() for my SQL and cache the prepared statement for later, if I then start a new transaction and call execute() on the statement, it commits the transaction. Is this behavior intentional? If so, does that mean I have to prepare my statement anew for every transaction?
Note that I'm seeing the aforementioned behavior with code as basic as the following:
After executing the above, a record has been committed to the db. If I had a more complex scenario involving a transaction with multiple statements where the entire transaction is inside a loop, this becomes problematic--I can't then prepare my statements outside the loop to improve performance.
When I try the same thing using straight PDO, it works fine. Can anyone else confirm this behavior?
