Jira Information

Original Issue:ZF-12484
Issue Type:Bug
Assignee:Ralph Schindler


When one calls lastInsertId() without any parameters inside a transaction that has not yet been committed, an incorrect value is returned.

To reproduce:

$this->insert(); // We assume that the table has a primary key named 'id' that is automatically incremented.
var_dump($this->getAdapter()->lastInsertId()); // Returns false

If one calls lastInsertId() with both parameters, then the correct value is returned. I.E.

var_dump($this->getAdapter()->lastInsertId($this->_name, 'id')); // Prints a number, like 23, which is what we would expect.

I tested this using Postgres, but it could be an issue in other adapters, as well.
