      Description

      When I insert decimals into database I get the following error message:

      ORA-01722: invalid number

      Oracle wants decimals (e.g. NUMBER(5,2)) separated by comma instead of a dot. I think the reason is that I use the german version of Windows. I tried to modify the following method of \Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\OCI8\OCI8Statement::bindValue() just for testing of course:

          public function bindValue($param, $value, $type = null)
          {
              if (is_float($value)) {
                  $value = str_replace('.', ',', (string) $value); // <--
              }
              return $this->bindParam($param, $value, $type);
          }
      

      With this modification I do not get the error anymore.
      It would be great if a solution could be found. The strange thing is, if I query "SELECT * from nls_database_parameters where PARAMETER='NLS_NUMERIC_CHARACTERS'" I get ".," which means that a dot is already used as decimal separator. Maybe Oracle preferes the Locale of the OS?!
      Maybe you could provide a setting which defines what separator should be used for decimals.

      I found some Links that might be interesting regarding this issue:
