State change detection for version incrementation (for optimistic locking) in combination with orphanRemoval


    • Type: Improvement
    • Status: Open
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: 2.1.4, 2.4.7
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: ORM
    • Security Level: All


      As i understand the documentation correctly, orphanRemoval associations have the meaning of a "part of" relationship. In the example (http://www.doctrine-project.org/docs/orm/2.0/en/reference/working-with-associations.html#orphan-removal) the adresses are part of the contact.

      In my opinion we should reason that the state of the adress consists of the states of all nested contacts. As a consequence we should flag the contact as "dirty" when the adresses change.

      This is relevant for optimistic locking scenarios or event handlers. In my application i tried to use optimistic locking for "contacts", which does not work if i don't change anything in the contact but only in the nested addresses.
