breeze.server.php's Introduction


This project is a PHP library that facilitates building Breeze JS compatible backends using Doctrine



a well documented, feature rich and popular Object Relational Mapper for PHP which supports several database systems

Why use Doctrine? (extracted from doctrine website)

  • Around since 2006 with very stable, high-quality codebase.
  • Extremely flexible and powerful object-mapping and query features.
  • Support for both high-level and low-level database programming for all your use-cases.
  • Large Community and integrations with many different frameworks (Symfony, Zend Framework, CodeIgniter, FLOW3, Lithium and more

Currently this library supports Doctrine ORM only. Future versions should support Doctrine MongoDB ODM too.

Some of the Doctrine Types are converted into Breeze Data Types

Built in Doctrine types with their breeze equivalent types

  • string - String - SQL VARCHAR to a PHP string.
  • integer - Int32 - SQL INT to a PHP integer.
  • smallint - Int32 - SMALLINT to a PHP integer.
  • bigint - Int32 - BIGINT to a PHP string.
  • boolean - Boolean - SQL boolean to a PHP boolean.
  • decimal - Decimal - SQL DECIMAL to a PHP double.
  • date - DateTime - SQL DATETIME to a PHP DateTime object.
  • time - DateTime - SQL TIME to a PHP DateTime object.
  • datetime - DateTime - SQL DATETIME/TIMESTAMP to a PHP DateTime object.
  • float - Double - SQL Float (Double Precision) to a PHP double. IMPORTANT: Works only with locale settings that use decimal points as separator.
  • Other data types fall back to String

JMS Serializer

a powerful serialization library for PHP. Provides more control over your serialized results. e.g: if you want to exclude a property from returned results, you may use the @Exclude annotation. Read the documentation to find out more.

Symfony Validator Component

(Optional, if you want to support validation) a powerful validation service for PHP with out of box support for Doctrine.

Please note that, by using the Symfony components, it does not necessarily mean you have to use the full stack symfony framework, since they are decoupled and standalone components.

Some of the Validation Constraints are converted to equivalent breeze validators.

Built in Validation Constraints with their Breeze equivalent validators



The library uses composer, the package manager for PHP.

add these lines to your composer.json and run composer update

    "require": {
        "adrotec/breeze.server.php": "dev-master",
        "symfony/validator": "dev-master"
    "minimum-stability": "dev"

Please note that "symfony/validator": "dev-master" is required by "adrotec/breeze.server.php" since the library relies on ConstraintViolation::getConstraint() method which is not (yet) available in the older versions. You may have to add "minimum-stability": "dev" to your composer.json


The library provides a basic framework to easily bootstrap the API. You may use either Application or StandaloneApplication class.

Using the Application class

/* @var $entityManager instanceof \Doctrine\ORM\EntityManager */
/* @var $serializer instanceof \JMS\Serializer\SerializerInterface */
/* @var $validator instanceof \Symfony\Component\Validator\Validator\ValidatorInterface */

$app = new Adrotec\BreezeJs\Framework\Application(

    'Employees' => 'EmpDirectory\Model\Employee',
    'Departments' => 'EmpDirectory\Model\Department',
    'Jobs' => 'EmpDirectory\Model\Job',

/* @var $request instanceof \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Request */

$response = $app->handle($request);

Using the StandaloneApplication class

$loader = require 'vendor/autoload.php';

$app = new Adrotec\BreezeJs\Framework\StandaloneApplication();

    'driver' => 'pdo_mysql',
    'host' => 'localhost',
    'dbname' => 'employees',
    'user' => 'root',
    'password' => ''

// configuring doctrine, serializer and validator
// using xml mappings
    'namespace' => 'EmpDirectory\Model',
    'type' => 'xml',
    'extension' => '.orm.xml', // default ".dcm.xml"
    'doctrine' => __DIR__ . '/src/EmpDirectory/config/doctrine', // doctrine directory
    'serializer' => __DIR__ . '/src/EmpDirectory/config/serializer', // [optional] serializer metadata directory
    'validation' => __DIR__ . '/src/EmpDirectory/config/validation.xml', // [optional] validation file

// limiting the api to certain classes
    // Resource name => Class name
    'Employees' => 'EmpDirectory\Model\Employee',
    'Jobs' => 'EmpDirectory\Model\Job',
    'Departments' => 'EmpDirectory\Model\Department',



With Symfony 2

There's a bundle for that!
