# Upgrade to 2.2
## Doctrine\DBAL\Connection#insert and Doctrine\DBAL\Connnection#update
Both methods now accept an optional last parameter $types with binding types of the values passed.
This can potentially break child classes that have overwritten one of these methods.
## Doctrine\DBAL\Connection#executeQuery
Doctrine\DBAL\Connection#executeQuery() got a new last parameter "QueryCacheProfile $qcp"
## Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\Statement split
The Driver statement was split into a ResultStatement and the normal statement extending from it.
This seperates the configuration and the retrieval API from a statement.
## MsSql Platform/SchemaManager renamed
The MsSqlPlatform was renamed to SQLServerPlatform, the MsSqlSchemaManager was renamed
to SQLServerSchemaManager.
## Cleanup SQLServer Platform version mess
DBAL 2.1 and before were actually only compatible to SQL Server 2008, not earlier versions.
Still other parts of the platform did use old features instead of newly introduced datatypes
in SQL Server 2005. Starting with DBAL 2.2 you can pick the Doctrine abstraction exactly
matching your SQL Server version.
The PDO SqlSrv driver now uses the new `SQLServer2008Platform` as default platform.
This platform uses new features of SQL Server as of version 2008. This also includes a switch
in the used fields for "text" and "blob" field types to:
"text" => "VARCHAR(MAX)"
"blob" => "VARBINARY(MAX)"
Additionally `SQLServerPlatform` in DBAL 2.1 and before used "DATE", "TIME" and "DATETIME2" for dates.
This types are only available since version 2008 and the introduction of an explicit
SQLServer 2008 platform makes this dependency explicit.
An `SQLServer2005Platform` was also introduced to differentiate the features between
versions 2003, earlier and 2005.
With this change the `SQLServerPlatform` now throws an exception for using limit queries
with an offset, since SQLServer 2003 and lower do not support this feature.
To use the old SQL Server Platform, because you are using SQL Server 2003 and below use
the following configuration code:
use Doctrine\DBAL\DriverManager;
use Doctrine\DBAL\Platforms\SQLServerPlatform;
use Doctrine\DBAL\Platforms\SQLServer2005Platform;
// You are using SQL Server 2003 or earlier
$conn = DriverManager::getConnection(array(
'driver' => 'pdo_sqlsrv',
'platform' => new SQLServerPlatform()
// .. additional parameters
// You are using SQL Server 2005
$conn = DriverManager::getConnection(array(
'driver' => 'pdo_sqlsrv',
'platform' => new SQLServer2005Platform()
// .. additional parameters
// You are using SQL Server 2008
$conn = DriverManager::getConnection(array(
'driver' => 'pdo_sqlsrv',
// 2008 is default platform
// .. additional parameters
