[MODM-140] Issue with nested embdedded documents after adding an EmbeddedDocument to Document Created: 14/Apr/11  Updated: 19/Dec/11

I'm using the latest version of Doctrine ODM (fresh from Git).

I have three levels of Documents (Two embedded); Category -> EmbedsMany: Post -> EmbedsMany PostVersion.


1. Make a new Post (Post1), 2 PostVersions (PostVersion1 and 2) and a Category
2. Add Post1 to Category
3. Persist Category, Flush, Clear
4. Retrieve Category
5. Make a new Post (Post2) and 2 PostVersions(PostVersion3 and 4)
6. Add Post2 to Category
7. Flush

If you're following properly, at this stage in the database there should be:
1 Category,
2 Posts
4 PostVersions ... 2 PostVersions in each Post

However, what actually happens is:
1 Category,
2 Posts
4 PostVersions ... 4 PostVersions in Post1, 0 PostVersions in Post2

On StackOverflow: http://bit.ly/ekFbe2
Testcase Gist: https://gist.github.com/920914

A work around is to make Post2 and add it to Category, flush, then make new PostVersions and flush again.

I did some debugging but I don't know enough about the internals to fix the issue.

Failing test

Added a test using the EmbdeddedTestLevelX Documents, please refer to Gist: https://gist.github.com/920914

For some reason, they work? I'm thinking maybe this isn't a bug... very confused at the moment.

I've got the same problem.

I had a similar problem, and resolved it with the attached patch (based on the 1.0.0beta3 release).

This patch causes the ODM to stop scanning for changes further down the heirachy once it finds a new object, and then ensures that the Persistence Builder will include all contents of the new item.

Kevin, do you want to put a PR in on github for this?
