It's impossible to set custom instance of PDO using "pdo" parameter in connection params. Its cause errors like this:

Argument 1 passed to Doctrine\DBAL\Cache\ResultCacheStatement::__construct() must be an instance of Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\Statement, instance of PDOStatement given

Change "Statement $stmt" to just "$stmt" in Doctrine\DBAL\Cache\ResultCacheStatement constructor parameter list sloved problem.

Kind regards,

Shouldn't you build the driver with your PDO instance?

Comment by Michał Dobaczewski [ 01/Jan/13 ]

Maybe buld custom driver will be better solution but as long this option is in documentation it should work or it should be deleted from documentation.

Could you expose your current config?

Comment by Michał Dobaczewski [ 01/Jan/13 ]

I have simple configuration without anything unusual based on code from this page:


$pdoInstance = new PDO('mysql:host=localhost;dbname=somedb', 'root', 'mypassword');


$connection['driver'] = 'pdo_mysql';
$connection['pdo']    = $pdoInstance; 


$config = Setup::createConfiguration();

[ Setup annotation driver, cache setup etc. ]

$entityManager = EntityManager::create($connection, $config,  $evm);

And now every Doctrine action which use database cause errors. If write this configuration:

$connection['driver']   = 'pdo_mysql';
$connection['user']     = 'root';
$connection['password'] = 'mypassword';

everything works.

Weird... Just went through the code and everything looks fine (See `Doctrine\DBAL\DriverManager#getConnection()`)

Can you check the spl_object_hash of your PDO instance and the one in the DBAL driver? What's your `Connection#getDriver()`?

I checked the code again and I discovered, that happens If you use Doctrine\ORM\Query\Exec\SingleSelectExecutor with cache but is still a bug. Sorry to confuse you.

Michał Dobaczewski can you provide the code to reproduce this then?

Comment by Michał Dobaczewski [ 02/Jan/13 ]
use Doctrine\ORM\Tools\Setup;
use Doctrine\ORM\EntityManager;

require __DIR__ . '/Doctrine/ORM/Tools/Setup.php';
require __DIR__ . '/Entities/Foo.php';


$paths = array("Entities");
$isDevMode = false;

$pdoInstance = new PDO('mysql:host=localhost;dbname=mydb', 'root', 'mypass');

// the connection configuration
$dbParams = array(
    'driver'   => 'pdo_mysql',
    'pdo'      => $pdoInstance

$config = Setup::createConfiguration($isDevMode);
$driverImpl = $config->newDefaultAnnotationDriver('/Entities');

$em = EntityManager::create($dbParams, $config);

$query = $em->createQuery('SELECT e FROM Foo e');

// Below line is important. It force query to use SQLWalker which use ResultCacheStatement.
$query->setHint($query::HINT_CUSTOM_TREE_WALKERS, array('\Doctrine\ORM\Tools\Pagination\CountWalker'));


Foo is whatever correct entity.

You need to set the statement to get it working:

$pdo->setAttribute(PDO::ATTR_STATEMENT_CLASS, array('Doctrine\DBAL\Driver\PDOStatement', array()));
