            new JMD\RestBundle\JMDRestBundle(),

Api routes:

Route parameters:

  1. bundleName - name of entity bundle
  2. entityName - name of entity
  3. id - entity item id
name method path comment
rest_get_entity_list GET /api/{bundleName}/{entityName} Show list entity items
rest_get_entity_item GET /api/{bundleName}/{entityName}/{id} Show entity item by id
rest_update_entity_item PUT /api/{bundleName}/{entityName}/{id} Update entity item by id
rest_x_update_entity_item PUT /api/{bundleName}/{entityName}/{id}/x Special update action for x-editable jQuery plugin
rest_delete_entity_item DELETE /api/{bundleName}/{entityName}/{id} Delete entity item id
rest_entity_add_item POST /api/{bundleName}/{entityName} Add new entity item

How to add or update item:

Request headers must have Content-Type equals application/json. For update any field in entity we must construct there json structure:

	"fieldName": "value",
	"fieldName2": "value"

Updating and posting supports relations. To save relations we have to set json like:

	"relationFieldToMany": [id1,id2],
	"relationFieldToOne": id3

How to show item or items:

For showing item in entity repository we must implement \JMD\RestBundle\Entity\RestEntityInterface and make methods:

  • findAllArray(array $order = []) - must return query builder. Example:
public function findAllArray(array $order = [])
		$qb = $this->createQueryBuilder('c');

		$qb->select('partial c.{id,name}');

		return $qb;
  • findOneArray($id) - must return array or null result. Example:
public function findOneArray($id)
		$qb = $this->createQueryBuilder('c');

				->select('partial c.{id,name}')
				->where(' = :id')
				->setParameter('id', $id)

		return $qb->getQuery()->getOneOrNullResult(AbstractQuery::HYDRATE_ARRAY);

After you make implementation, you can send GET request and will get result like this:

# url: http://localhost/api/BundleName/Client
	"status": 200,
	"data": [
			"id": 1,
			"name": "Test client"
			"id": 2,
			"name": "Test client 2"

# url: http://localhost/api/BundleName/Client/1
	"status": 200,
	"data":  {
		"id": 1,
		"name": "Test client"

That's all!

You can’t perform that action at this time.
