Jira issue originally created by user emerzh:

Hi,

Since at least postgres 8.4 , pg support arrays...
it could be nice if doctrine could read them as a type instead of use a string for it.
Postgresql also offer a sort of hash array named hstore...

Thanks

This will not be implemented as it is implementation specific whereas Doctrine features need to be supported by all vendors.

You can already implement this with custom types though, i remember testing this some time ago.

Why is this not to be implemented? It can be used by the PostgreSQL driver without anything above it needing change - all platform drivers exist precisely to deal with implementation specifics… No?

Coming back to this and still wonder why it cannot be implemented. Could even be a solution / combined with DBAL-369

See https://github.com/easybiblabs/EasyBib_DoctrineTypes for an implementation of PostgreSQL Hstore. Arrays can be implemented the same way.
