[DDC-1819] Allow ResultSetMapping to be used for objects that are not entities Created: 11/May/12  Updated: 14/May/12

Currently Doctrine\ORM\Query\ResultSetMapping can only be used to query the database for entities using the EntityManager::createNativeQuery method. It would be great if we could use this as well for objects that are not entities. That way we can create simple DTO's and map them to a query using the ResultSetMapping.

I'll open a PR If there are no objections.

Good idea. You could make this happen by adding a ArbitraryObjectHydrator that does not use the ClassMetadata but creates ReflectionProperty instances during the hydration.

Api would then be:

$rsm = new ResultSetMapping();

$query = $em->createNativeQuery($sql, $rsm);
$objects = $query->getResult(Query::HYDRATOR_ARBITRARY_OBJECTS);

Thanks for your input. I'll try to work on some tests this week.

I've started working on the test suite in this PR.
