Using Symfony with Sql Server and from what I've read, it seems that the connection to the database is not stable.

As soon as I use the orderBy method I get an error :

Here's an example :

Unable to find source-code formatter for language: php. Available languages are: actionscript, html, java, javascript, none, sql, xhtml, xml
  $qStores =
             ->from('MainBundle:PointDeVenteReference', 'rpdv')
             ->andWhere( 'rpdv.partenaireClient = :id_partner ' )
                 ->setParameter( 'id_partner', $this->getUser()->getPartenaire()->getIdPartenaire() )
             ->orderBy( 'rpdv.idPointDeVenteReference' , 'DESC' )
             ->setFirstResult( 0 )
             ->setMaxResults( 30 );

And the error :

An exception has been thrown during the rendering of a template ("An exception occurred while executing
'SELECT DISTINCT TOP 30 id_point_de_vente_reference0
FROM ( SELECT p0_.id_point_de_vente_reference AS id_point_de_vente_reference0,

I tried to change the class SQLServerPlatform with corrections found on the net, without success.

Do you have any idea?

Thx !

Which version of DBAL are you using? A lot of fixes have been applied to SQL Server's LIMIT/OFFSET query rewriting in DBAL during the last months.

Comment by Maël SOURISSEAU [ 08/Oct/14 ]

2.4 for DBAL.

Under my request, I have :

$stores = new Paginator( $qStores, TRUE );

In passing the second parameter to FALSE, I have no error.

Comment by Marco Pivetta [ 19/Oct/14 ]

I'd suggest checking ORM+DBAL latest to see if the issue still exists, as those component have suffered from radical changes in the last few months.

[DBAL-373] Indexes and uniqueConstraints has been ignored Created: 26/Oct/12  Updated: 20/Apr/13

I using the Doctrine Migrations and when I declared my entity with the indexes section, the index name has been ignored. It's like this:

columns: city_id

but, the diff tools ignore it and give me this code:
$this->addSql("CREATE INDEX IDX_7299B5238BAC62AF ON tb_address (city_id)");

and it should be:
$this->addSql("CREATE INDEX IDX_ADDRESS_CITY ON tb_address (city_id)");

Notice: I open the same bug on the migrations repository in github and @kimhemsoe told me to open here, since this is generated by DBAL component.

Comment by Padraig O'Sullivan [ 11/Dec/12 ]

Did you specify an index name in the indexes property for your entity in your PHP file? In this case, you should have something like:

indexes={@Index(name="IDX_ADDRESS_CITY", columns={"city_id"})}

That should result in the correct SQL being generated. If I modify the above to:


I also get a migration that has SQL with an auto-generated index name.

Comment by Diego Oliveira [ 02/Feb/13 ]

Yes I did specify a name, as you can see:

        columns: slug
        columns: address_id

I don't try do to it using annotations because I choose do use yaml to describe my entities. I will take a look on the source code to see if I can fix it and send a PR.

Comment by Diego Oliveira [ 02/Apr/13 ]

I already sent this patch to Guilherme Blanco, but I guess he doesn't have time to take a look on it.

I guess my solution it's not ideal, but it solve the problem and can be a base to make a better solution.

Comment by Benjamin Eberlei [ 20/Apr/13 ]

Diego Oliveira the fix doesn't seem too nice with the additional boolean flag.

I would rather like to fix the root cause instead of adding this solution.

Comment by Benjamin Eberlei [ 20/Apr/13 ]

The issue is tricky, because we cannot just move the index definitions above, they will need the columns, however that directly generates the index in the schema tool. Maybe if the gather join column methods would check if they can add an index already it would work.

[DBAL-292] Multiple use of named parameter doesn't work Created: 12/Jun/12  Updated: 28/Dec/13

In the example in the documentation http://doctrine-dbal.readthedocs.org/en/2.0.x/reference/data-retrieval-and-manipulation.html#dynamic-parameters-and-prepared-statements there is the following example:

$sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE name = :name OR username = :name";
$stmt = $conn->prepare($sql);
$stmt->bindValue("name", $name);

When I try this example using pdo_sqlsrv I get the following error:
PDOException: SQLSTATE[07002]: [Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 11.0]COUNT field incorrect or syntax error

When I use instead the parameters name1 and name2 the query works as expected.

Comment by Alexander [ 07/Jul/12 ]

Are you sure you were using the 2.2.2 version of the ORM? Can you try to reproduce this with the latest master?

Comment by Steve Müller [ 28/Dec/13 ]

Jürgen ping. I cannot reproduce this error, either. Can you please try to reproduce this with the latest master branch? Otherwise I will close this ticket.
