Restore SqlitePlatform#supportsForeignKeyConstraints (no lies!) #242

Ocramius commented Jan 2, 2013

This PR applies a hotfix for broken behavior introduced in DBAL-370 (doctrine/dbal#220).

Basically, the SQLite platform lies about its ability to support foreign key constraint generation. This leads to various failures in the ORM schema tools.

In fact, the platform itself doesn't even generate the foreign key generation SQL, and instead throws a Doctrine\DBAL\DBALException (similar to "not implemented" in this particular case).
The PR introduces a failing test that exposes the (currently) missing feature in the platform and restores the return value of Doctrine\DBAL\Platforms\SqlitePlatform#supportsForeignKeyConstraints().

While SQLite 3.6.19 introduces support for Foreign keys, the DBAL platform still doesn't have it.

New doctrine 2.3.3 version is available, and I waited a lot for that because i hoped that when create SQLite schema that FK-s will be created also! But not! FK-s are still not generated! Can anyone tell me why?! I know that it was implemented last year (2012) in some branch... What happened?! Its removed or what?! Its not supported in new 2.3.3 doctrine?!?!
