A way to specify "inversedBy" when mapping referenceOne and referenceMany as the ORM have it.

Comment by Jonathan H. Wage [ 11/Feb/11 ]

hmm. I am not sure if having inversedBy makes sense for the mongodb odm based on how references currently work. What would it be used for? relationships in the odm don't work like they do in the orm. We don't use foreign keys to get a reference, we store a reference document on the document that is doing the referencing.

Thinking about this more:

/** @Document */
class Product
    /** @ReferenceOne(targetDocument="Seller") */
    private $seller;

/** @Document */
class Seller
    /** @ReferenceMany(targetDocument="Product", inversedBy="seller") */
    private $products;

Now the $products association will be loaded by running a query like this:

db.products.find({ 'seller.$id' : seller.id })

Is this what you mean?

Sorry not getting back to you about this sooner. But that is exactly what i mean can also be done for reference one i think

Comment by Jonathan H. Wage [ 20/Feb/11 ]

Can you help me think through the other scenariors where it can be used? and how mappedBy would be used. We just need to be sure to think through all the semantics and define it all before I start trying to implement it.

I implemented this here https://github.com/doctrine/mongodb-odm/commit/d1bffbd6bb7b7b690e25f1314f1bf6b69f1e41a6

Can you check it out and give some feedback?

Comment by Henrik Bjornskov [ 21/Feb/11 ]

Yes i will play around with it later today
