Jira issue originally created by user alexp:

I've found that the doctrine cli tool seems to break PHP's type hinting contracts in the scenario outlined in the attached diagram, following a process outlined in my stack overflow post here:

The result is code that throws E_STRICT notices which we are loathe to suppress for CI reasons, e.g: Runtime Notice: Declaration of ... should be compatible with ... in ... line ...

As mentioned I have asked on Stack Overflow to no avail, as well as the FreeNode IRC channels starting with #symfony. The response from #symfony is that this is a doctrine issue, with suggestions being made that my problem is that I am using the CLI tools.

I don't think it would be too difficult to fix this issue. I had a quick look at the Doctrine\ORM\Tools\EntityGenerator class and Doctrine\ORM\Tools\Console\Command\GenerateEntitiesCommand and it looks like it should be possible to find the eldest ancestor definition of a function and honour its type hints.

I am open to this being an implementation issue on my end, but I do feel this may be either a bug or an opportunity to improve the CLI tools as for most other purposes they have been a huge benefit to automating my workflow.

Thanks for your time and consideration.
