Jira issue originally created by user aarondm:
I am currently trying to work with BINARY columns with Doctrine 2 and MSSQL. In order to get my Entities working I had to create a custom Mapping Type for Binary columns. All went well in this case and I've got it running.
The problem arises when I am attempting to use Associative mapping (OneToOne/ManyToMany). The problem is, in order to do a select for an SQL column, I had to create a DQL function called "CONVERT" so that I use WHERE statements:
->where("u.id = CONVERT('binary', :id, 1)")
As you see, I must do this in order to get a result.
However, when I'm using associative mapping; this is what it does:
return 'SELECT ' . $this->_getSelectColumnListSQL()
. ' FROM ' . $this->*class->getQuotedTableName($this->*platform) . ' '
. ($conditionSql ? ' WHERE ' . $conditionSql : '')
As you can see, its some what hard coded and I cannot change it without changing the actual code in
So, I would first like to know if there was maybe a way you could allow us to customize the SELECT statement that the persisters use - or maybe (though I'm not sure how this will be done) make them use user-defined repository functions?
Not entirely sure if I explained this properly and I do realize my circumstance is highly odd - but this does seem like a limitation and because of this I cannot use associative mapping.
