Jira issue originally created by user giosh94mhz:

According to the documentation, EntityManager::find should return one entity given it's primary key. When a primary key of an entity is composed of multiple associations, one (me :)) would expect that the following works, but it doesn't:

$entity = $_em->find('My\EntityClass', array(
    'assoc1' => $instance1,
    'assoc2' => $instance2
PHP Fatal error:  Object of class My\EntityClass could not be converted to string

The only working way I've found is the following:

$entity = $_em->find('My\EntityClass', array(
    'assoc1' => $instance1->getId(),
    'assoc2' => $instance2->getId()

I think that this second scenario is not correct, since expose implementation details.

I've created a patch on my github fork, I'll create a pull request ASAP.
