DoctrineModule zend-hydrator

Total Downloads

** This is a Patch Repository **

Since the zendframework/zend-stdlib hydrators were moved into their own repository, zendframework/zend-hydrator, the DoctrineModule repository has not been updated to correctly use the new library. Through many discussions on the issue @doctrineorm continues to maintain they are in line with zendframework/zend-hydrator because, very unusually, the new library was written to be backwards compatible with zendframework/zend-stdlib but that backwards compatibility was removed from zend-hydrator in later versions leaving developers who want to use Doctrine in their projects which allow for custom hydrators out on a limb.

This library overrides the files from DoctrineModule which are broken because they still reference zendframework/zend-stdlib for their hydrators.

Discussion on this issue:


Installation of this module uses composer. For composer documentation, please refer to getcomposer.org.

$ php composer.phar require api-skeletons/zf-doctrine-module-zend-hydrator ^1.0

Inside your composer.json file this library must be included before doctrine/doctrine-module. This ordering allows classes from this repository to override the DoctrineModule classes which are broken.

Finding this patch would not have been possible without the constant support of Toon Verwerft and his zf-doctrine-hydration-module. It took nearly six months to find a solution and he supported my efforts the whole time. Thank you Toon!
