Dbi doesnt work well with sqlite3?

Hi, guys, I want to share my discovery with you. If you found I am
wrong, pleas point it out:)

if you use dbi to generate a prepared statement by doing:

sth=dbh.prepare(“INSERT INTO WORDS VALUES(?,?,?)”)

(0…1).each{|i|
sth.execute(“1”,“2”,“3”)
}

it will give you a /sqlite3-ruby-1.3.2/lib/sqlite3/statement.rb:41:in
`bind_param’: library routine called out of sequence
(SQLite3::MisuseException).
I have no idea what the hell is that…

My Guess is it’s a compatible issue… So I bypassed the ‘dbi’, and use
sqlite3-ruby driver directly, and it works fine:

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘sqlite3’
db=SQLite3::Database.new(“shit.db”)
db.execute(%q{
CREATE TABLE PEOPLE(
NAME CHAR(20),
ADDRESS CHAR(29) );})
st=db.prepare(“INSERT INTO PEOPLE VALUES(?,?)”)
(0…100).each do |i|
st.execute(i.to_s,i.to_s)
end

I’m using MacOSX(10.6.5),

Is there anybody using dbi???
Is that very useful???I know it should be useful…but the only way I
can make my program work is to bypass dbi…

Help!!!

Thanks brabuhr :slight_smile:

Just like what you said. It will happen when you have more than one
record to insert.

I’m not using DBI, but based on an online tutorial for DBI:Mysql I
made this test program:

require “dbi”

dbh = DBI.connect(“DBI:SQLite3:memory:”)

dbh.do(“DROP TABLE IF EXISTS EMPLOYEE”)
dbh.do(“CREATE TABLE EMPLOYEE ( FIRST_NAME CHAR(20) NOT NULL,
LAST_NAME CHAR(20), AGE INT, SEX CHAR(1), INCOME FLOAT )”)

sth = dbh.prepare( “INSERT INTO EMPLOYEE(FIRST_NAME, LAST_NAME, AGE,
SEX, INCOME) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?, ?)”)
sth.execute(‘John’, ‘Poul’, 25, ‘M’, 2300)
sth.execute(‘Zara’, ‘Ali’, 17, ‘F’, 1000)
sth.finish

sth = dbh.prepare(“SELECT * FROM EMPLOYEE WHERE INCOME > ?”)
sth.execute(1000)

sth.fetch do |row|
printf “First Name: %s, Last Name : %s\n”, row[0], row[1]
printf “Age: %d, Sex : %s\n”, row[2], row[3]
printf “Salary :%d \n\n”, row[4]
end
sth.finish

dbh.disconnect

And, testing it:

ruby 1.8.7 (2009-06-12 patchlevel 174) [universal-darwin10.0]

from i.rb:10:in `’

Making a change:

sth = dbh.prepare( “INSERT INTO EMPLOYEE(FIRST_NAME, LAST_NAME, AGE,
SEX, INCOME) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?, ?)”)
sth.execute(‘John’, ‘Poul’, 25, ‘M’, 2300)
#sth.execute(‘Zara’, ‘Ali’, 17, ‘F’, 1000)
sth.finish

ruby 1.8.7 (2009-06-12 patchlevel 174) [universal-darwin10.0]
First Name: John, Last Name : Poul
Age: 25, Sex : M
Salary :2300

The exception occurs the second time we try to execute the prepared
statement. (I don’t really know what that means :slight_smile: but, hopefully
someone will find that information useful.

(I’d like to try this against another database, but I don’t have the
time right now.)
