Jira issue originally created by user stof:
New types have to be registered in the platforms using registerDoctrineMappingType but the driver does not call this for type that are registered using Type::addType
This issue has been reported by some Symfony user here symfony/symfony#1349 but the bug is indeed in DBAL.
Btw, this also affects the master branch but this project does not allow to select it (the ORM project does)
Comment created by @beberlei:
This is not a "bug". This methods have to called indepdentatly.
Issue was closed with resolution "Invalid"
Comment created by stof:
When I asked you about this some times ago for the DoctrineBundle integration, you told me that calling Type:addType was enough
cant remember, i must have been tired sorry :-)
