Jira issue originally created by user nad2000:

I pulled from github the whole thing, but still stuck with sandbox:

\doctrine\tools\sandbox>php doctrine.php
.PHP Warning: require(doctrine\lib\vendor\Symfony\Components\Console\Helper\Helper.php): failed to open st

well, it seams that at some stage Symfony\Components got renamed to Symfony\Coponet:

Symfony/Components renamed into Symfony/Component

When I copied Component into Componets I got:
.PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Symfony\Component\Console\Helper\Helper in doctrine\lib\vendor\Sy

Same for me, even worse, despite git submodule dependencies, the submodules (and their submodules) have different versions of "Components" vs. "Component", so the CLI is broken now.


Comment created by @beberlei:

Yes this sucks, unfortunately for ORM depending on DBAL Beta 3 we cannot easily change this.

Workaround until the next release of DBAL is uncommenting the following two lines instantiating DBAL Commands from your doctrine.php:

    // DBAL Commands
    //new \Doctrine\DBAL\Tools\Console\Command\RunSqlCommand(),
    //new \Doctrine\DBAL\Tools\Console\Command\ImportCommand(),

For the next release this week this will be resolved.

Comment created by codewench:

I came across this issue today. I installed Doctrine via PEAR and had to do a few things to get the sandbox example working, which might help as a workaround until the next release:

  1. make sure the PEAR directory is part of your php.ini include path
  2. move the Symfony directory from 'PEAR/Doctrine/Symfony' to 'PEAR/Symfony'
  3. update the paths to Doctrine & Symfony inside 'tools/sandbox/doctrine.php' & 'tools/sandbox/cli-config.php'

I can now work with the sandbox examples.

As a reference, this is what my cli-config.php source looks like now: (sorry for the unformatted code

 tag & [code] weren't recognized.)


require_once 'Doctrine/Common/ClassLoader.php';

$classLoader = new \Doctrine\Common\ClassLoader('Doctrine\ORM', realpath(DIR . 'Doctrine/ORM'));
$classLoader = new \Doctrine\Common\ClassLoader('Doctrine\DBAL', realpath(DIR . 'Doctrine/DBAL'));
$classLoader = new \Doctrine\Common\ClassLoader('Doctrine\Common', realpath(DIR . 'Doctrine/Common'));
$classLoader = new \Doctrine\Common\ClassLoader('Symfony', realpath(DIR . 'Symfony'));
$classLoader = new \Doctrine\Common\ClassLoader('Entities', DIR);
$classLoader = new \Doctrine\Common\ClassLoader('Proxies', DIR);

$config = new \Doctrine\ORM\Configuration();
$config->setMetadataCacheImpl(new \Doctrine\Common\Cache\ArrayCache);
$driverImpl = $config->newDefaultAnnotationDriver(array(DIR."/Entities"));

$config->setProxyDir(DIR . '/Proxies');

$connectionOptions = array(
'driver' => 'pdo_sqlite',
'path' => 'database.sqlite'

$em = \Doctrine\ORM\EntityManager::create($connectionOptions, $config);

$helpers = array(
'db' => new \Doctrine\DBAL\Tools\Console\Helper\ConnectionHelper($em->getConnection()),
'em' => new \Doctrine\ORM\Tools\Console\Helper\EntityManagerHelper($em)
