Doctrine2

Access the database using Doctrine2 ORM.

When used with Zend Framework 2 or Symfony2, Doctrine’s Entity Manager is automatically retrieved from Service Locator. Set up your functional.suite.yml like this:

modules:
    enabled:
        - Symfony # 'ZF2' or 'Symfony'
        - Doctrine2:
            depends: Symfony
            cleanup: true # All doctrine queries will be wrapped in a transaction, which will be rolled back at the end of each test

If you don’t use Symfony or Zend Framework, you need to specify a callback function to retrieve the Entity Manager:

modules:
    enabled:
        - Doctrine2:
            connection_callback: ['MyDb', 'createEntityManager']
            cleanup: true # All doctrine queries will be wrapped in a transaction, which will be rolled back at the end of each test

This will use static method of MyDb::createEntityManager() to establish the Entity Manager.

By default, the module will wrap everything into a transaction for each test and roll it back afterwards. By doing this tests will run much faster and will be isolated from each other.

Actions

dontSeeInRepository

Flushes changes to database and performs findOneBy() call for current repository.

  • param $entity
  • param array $params

flushToDatabase

Performs $em->flush();

grabEntitiesFromRepository

Selects entities from repository. It builds query based on array of parameters. You can use entity associations to build complex queries.

Example:

<?php
$users = $I->grabEntitiesFromRepository('AppBundle:User', array('name' => 'davert'));
?>
  • Available since 1.1
  • param $entity
  • param array $params
  • return array

grabEntityFromRepository

Selects a single entity from repository. It builds query based on array of parameters. You can use entity associations to build complex queries.

Example:

<?php
$user = $I->grabEntityFromRepository('User', array('id' => '1234'));
?>
  • Available since 1.1
  • param $entity
  • param array $params
  • return object

grabFromRepository

Selects field value from repository. It builds query based on array of parameters. You can use entity associations to build complex queries.

Example:

<?php
$email = $I->grabFromRepository('User', 'email', array('name' => 'davert'));
?>
  • Available since 1.1
  • param $entity
  • param $field
  • param array $params
  • return array

haveFakeRepository

Mocks the repository.

With this action you can redefine any method of any repository. Please, note: this fake repositories will be accessible through entity manager till the end of test.

Example:

<?php

$I->haveFakeRepository('Entity\User', array('findByUsername' => function($username) {  return null; }));

This creates a stub class for Entity\User repository with redefined method findByUsername, which will always return the NULL value.

  • param $classname
  • param array $methods

haveInRepository

Persists record into repository. This method crates an entity, and sets its properties directly (via reflection). Setters of entity won’t be executed, but you can create almost any entity and save it to database. Returns id using getId of newly created entity.

$I->haveInRepository('Entity\User', array('name' => 'davert'));

persistEntity

Adds entity to repository and flushes. You can redefine it’s properties with the second parameter.

Example:

<?php
$I->persistEntity(new \Entity\User, array('name' => 'Miles'));
$I->persistEntity($user, array('name' => 'Miles'));
  • param $obj
  • param array $values

seeInRepository

Flushes changes to database, and executes a query with parameters defined in an array. You can use entity associations to build complex queries.

Example:

<?php
$I->seeInRepository('AppBundle:User', array('name' => 'davert'));
$I->seeInRepository('User', array('name' => 'davert', 'Company' => array('name' => 'Codegyre')));
$I->seeInRepository('Client', array('User' => array('Company' => array('name' => 'Codegyre')));
?>

Fails if record for given criteria can't be found,

  • param $entity
  • param array $params
