PHP 5.4


So I have a class defined like this:

class PhoneSettings {


  • @OneToOne(targetEntity="Medium", cascade= {"persist", "remove"}

    , orphanRemoval=true)

  • @JoinColumn(name="medium_id", referencedColumnName="medium_id", nullable=true, onDelete="SET NULL")
    protected $medium = null;

And class Medium has no reference to the class Settings.

Now suppose I have a $Settings object that is already persisted and has been correctly loaded. Also suppose that the $Settings object has a $medium (that is, $Settings->medium = $OldMedium)

Now suppose I do:

$Settings->medium = $NewMedium;
Where $NewMedium is a different Medium object.

When I persist $Settings, Doctrine does delete $OldMedium from the DB, but the problem is that it also deletes $NewMedium ...

I have tried removing onDelete="SET NULL", but then I receive a "cannot delete, constraint failed" error...
