Michael Nitschinger:
Caching Doctrine Entities with Couchbase
Jan 08, 2013 @ 11:19:07

Michael Nitschinger has a new post to his site today showing how you can cache the entities you've created with Doctrine using Couchbase as a simple caching tool.

As part of our ongoing efforts to make Couchbase more integrated with frameworks and libraries, we added caching support for the Doctrine ORM. [...] Caching can either be used standalone (through the API provided by doctrine/common) or integrated with the ORM functionality. We'll look at both variants through simple examples, a good documentation can also be found here. Note that at the time of writing, the CouchbaseCache is not mentioned as a caching driver because the documentation still needs to be updated.

He walks you through the steps to get everything you need installed, both through Composer and the Couchbase extension so your PHP installation will support it. He includes sample code that sets up the cache and shows how to check it to see if a key exists. With this base in place, he expands it out to working with the Doctrine ORM. He shows how to create a sample "Person" entity, inject it into the entity manager and perform a query with the Result Cache to locate the object.
