ZF-3011: DB2 on i5 fails because of table and column names quoting


The following script was used:

require_once 'Zend/Db/Adapter/Db2.php';
$db = new Zend_Db_Adapter_Db2(

$db->insert("animals",Array("a"=>"Serg ","b"=>"Just a","c"=>"12345"));
$v=$db->fetchRow("select * from animals where a='Serg '");

It fails with the following result:

[01-Apr-2008 07:37:45] PHP Warning:  db2_prepare(): Statement Prepare Failed in /usr/local/Zend/ZendFramework/library/Zend/Db/Statement/Db2.php on line 64

var_dump() within Db2.php just before db2_prepare call gives the following result:

string(54) "INSERT INTO "animals" ("a", "b", "c") VALUES (?, ?, ?)"

The following script works OK:

$conn = db2_connect("xxxxxx", "LOUISA", "*******");

if ($conn) {
    echo "Connection succeeded.
"; } else { echo "Connection failed.
"; exit; } $r=db2_prepare($conn,'insert into animals (a,b,c) values (?,?,?)'); $v=db2_execute($r,Array('a'=>'A1','b'=>'B1','c'=>'C1'));


Alex, how did you come to report this issue? Are you running DB2 on i5 somewhere?

Sergey Korolyov "serg at" (original reporter of the problem) has an access to DB2 on i5. We could ask him to make tests we need. Probably he can also provide an access to DB2 on i5 for us.

PS He also lives in SPb, but doesn't have a habit to work at nights :) So if you write him now, his respond will come with some delay

Please evaluate and categorize as necessary.

I have the same problem with i5 and os v5r3.

You can contact me at if you want more information of the problem

This was fixed in ZF 1.7.2 with the new i5 enabled adapter.
