DBAL-202: Preparing Statements outside Transaction #1375

Jira issue originally created by user @beberlei:

From the mailing list:

I'm using DBAL 2.1 with Oracle and it appears that if I call prepare() for my SQL and cache the prepared statement for later, if I then start a new transaction and call execute() on the statement, it commits the transaction. Is this behavior intentional? If so, does that mean I have to prepare my statement anew for every transaction?

Note that I'm seeing the aforementioned behavior with code as basic as the following:

$stmt = $dbh->prepare("INSERT INTO test_table (id, description) VALUES
(:my*id, :my*desc)");
$stmt->execute(array(":my*id" => 1, ":my*desc" => "test"));

After executing the above, a record has been committed to the db. If I had a more complex scenario involving a transaction with multiple statements where the entire transaction is inside a loop, this becomes problematic--I can't then prepare my statements outside the loop to improve performance.

When I try the same thing using straight PDO, it works fine. Can anyone else confirm this behavior?

Are you using PDO_OCI or oci8 with Doctrine?

I had responded to him on our intranet and intended to submit a patch, but haven't yet found the time to prepare and test one. As a temporary workaround I suggested he prepare the statement inside the transaction. We are using oci8 and the following was my response and analysis:

When the doctrine2 oci8 driver prepares a statement, the generated statement will forever use the active execute mode, regardless of the mode when it's actually executed. I disagree with the current behavior.

As you noted, this is not the behavior used by PDO OCI. Short-term, I think you should prepare the statement inside a transaction. Long-term, I think we should submit a patch to doctrine2, something like follows:

  • add a getExecuteMode to OCI8Connection
  • add a getDriverOptions to OCI8Connection
  • remove the $executeMode parameter from OCI8Statement::**construct
  • remove the $driverOptions parameter from OCI8Statement::**construct
  • store a reference to $dbh to $this->*dbh from OCI8Statement::_*construct
  • replace $this->*executeMode with $this->*dbh->getExecuteMode()
  • replace $this->*driverOptions with $this->*dbh->getDriverOptions()
