DDC-2290: Infer custom Types from the field for query parameters #2991

Jira issue originally created by user mnapoli:

When using a mapping Type that declares convertToDatabaseValue, the method is not always called in queries.


SELECT ... WHERE entity.field = ?1

(with entity.field being of custom type 'themappingtype')

Type::convertToDatabaseValue() is correctly called when using:

$query->setParameter('1', 'foo', 'the*mapping*type');

But it is not called when using:

$query->setParameter('1', 'foo');

which gives a query that returns invalid results.

Like other mapping types in this situation, there is no reason the type is not inferred automatically from the field.

I have written a failing test case in Doctrine\Tests\ORM\Functional\TypeValueSqlTest:

    public function testQueryParameterWithoutType()
        $entity = new CustomTypeUpperCase();
        $entity->lowerCaseString = 'foo';


        $id = $entity->id;


        $query = $this->_em->createQuery('SELECT from Doctrine\Tests\Models\CustomType\CustomTypeUpperCase c where c.lowerCaseString = ?1');
        $query->setParameter('1', 'foo');

        $result = $query->getResult();

        $this->assertCount(1, $result);
        $this->assertEquals($id, $result[0]['id']);

The organization name has changed so the previous URL is a 404.

Here is the branch containing the failing testcase:[DDC-2290](

Any news on this one? Also, I just noticed that it does not cover the original problem I've reported in DDC-2224: I was specifically talking about convertToDatabaseValueSQL() and not convertToDatabaseValue().
My problem is that even when passing the third parameter $type, it does not use the conversion function from convertToDatabaseValueSQL().

Should we reopen DDC-2224?
