Doctrine EQUAL NEST Documentation???

Postby JayR » Sun Nov 18, 2012 2:02 am


I just started playing around with an equal nest relation on symfony 1.4.19.
The implementation and usage of fixtures for some test data is really easy.

But I don't find any documentation about the the standard functionality like ADD a new element or DELETE an element.

As an easy example I have a friend table and a unique nest relation table. There are 3 users connected like this:
A <-> B
A <-> C

How is the "best practice" way to delete the relationship A <-> C ????
I could write a table function that deletes the relation directly. But isn't there some built-in functionality to do something like
Code: Select all

or something like this?!

So my main question would be if there is some documentation for the handling of unique nest relations ??

Thanks in advance.

Just to answer my own question, and hopefully help someone else....
It seems that the handling of (equal) nested relations is not at all (or extremly poor) documented.
But that is not the biggest problem. I ran into a bug that makes this "feature" unusable. At least for my symfony 1.4.19 project.
It is documented here:

My solution for the moment is to NOT use the doctrine equal feature and use my own table getter functions that simulate the equal features.
Hopefully this gets fixed soon, the feature would be really cool.
