Jira issue originally created by user sergei:

It is not possible to use ResultVariable in a like expression. For exemple :

$qb ->select('c', 'SQRT(c.id) AS test')
->from('SomeClass', 'c')
->having('test LIKE \'%4%\'');

return [Syntax Error] line 0, col 91: Error: Expected Literal, got 'LIKE'

$qb ->select('c')
->from('SomeClass', 'c')
->having('c.id LIKE \'%4%\'');

works, and :

$qb ->select('c', 'SQRT(c.id) AS test')
->from('SomeClass', 'c')
->having('test = 4');


Changing Doctrine\ORM\Query\Parser LikeExpression function fix the problem (but has maby other consequences) :

by replacing : "$stringExpr = $this->StringExpression();"
by :
$peek = $this->_lexer->glimpse();
if($peek['value'] == 'LIKE') { // Simple Expression
$stringExpr = $this->ArithmeticExpression();
} else {
$stringExpr = $this->StringExpression();
