Jira issue originally created by user bountin:
With Hibernate I can define a column as Updatable/Insertable or non-Updatable/non-Insertable so that this field is considered read-only and is not part of any update/insert statement. I'd like to have the same possibility in Doctrine.
In my use case a value is generated and maintained by database triggers. In my application I only want to read this value but the application should never try to insert or update the column.
Updatable/Insertable in the Hibernate documentation: http://docs.jboss.org/hibernate/annotations/3.5/reference/en/html_single/#entity-mapping-property-column
