Jira issue originally created by user TheBelgarion:

I update my symfony 2.5 with ORM 2.5. to try out the Embedded function.
I currently does not work correctly with extending class

 * @ORM\Entity
 * @ORM\Table(name="A", uniqueConstraints={@UniqueConstraint(name="id", columns={"id"})})
class A extends B {}
abstract class Item {

     * @var $bonus
     * @ORM\Embedded(class="Bonus")
    private $bonus;

it only works if i put the definition of the Embedded properties directly in class A ( but it works with all normal properties defined in the Abstract )

Setting the parent class properties to "protected" (instead of private") works and could be an acceptable workaround for some.

@lcobucci lcobucci added a commit to lcobucci/doctrine2 that referenced this issue Jun 9, 2016
@lcobucci lcobucci Allow the usage of embedded objects on parent classes.
The `ClassMetadataInfo` was always using the "current class" to
fetch the reflection of a property even when a field is declared
on the parent class (which causes `ReflectionProperty` to throw
an exception).

Fixes #4097 and #4277.
