Adapter to use liip/serializer in place of jms/serializer.

2.0.0 2019-10-09 14:38 UTC


An adapter to make liip/serializer a drop-in replacement for jms/serializer.

Version 1 of this adapter is for integrating JMS Serializer version 1, and version 2 for JMS Serializer version 2 and 3. (Because there are BC breaks in the interfaces of JMS serializer that prevent this library from supporting JMS 1 and 2/3 with the same code.)

This library provides a serializer that attempts to use the Liip Serializer and falls back to JMS serializer on error. You need to use the Liip\Serializer\Adapter\JMS\AdapterSerializationContext provided in this library instead of the regular JMS\Serializer\SerializationContext. You can use the Serializer\Adapter\JMS\AdapterSerializationContextFactory when working with libraries that create the context themselves.


use JMS\Serializer\Serializer as JMSSerializer;
use Liip\Serializer\Adapter\JMS\JMSSerializerAdapter;
use Liip\Serializer\Serializer as LiipSerializer;

// see for how to set up the Liip Serializer
$liipSerializer = new LiipSerializer(...);
// see for how to set up JMS Serializer
$jmsSerializer = new JMSSerializer(...);

$serializer = new JMSSerializerAdapter($liipSerializer, $jmsSerializer, new NullLogger());

// $serializer can now be used in place of $jmsSerializer

Using Liip Serializer only for a Subset of Models

The JMSSerializerAdapter accepts an additional constructor argument to specify a list of enabled classes. If that list is specified, only those classes will be attempted to handle with the Liip Serializer. If you want to use JMS Serializer for some of your models and the Liip Serializer for others, use this configuration to avoid overhead and avoid warning log entries from the adapter that you do not care about.

$enabledClasses = ['App\Model\Product', 'App\Model\Category'];

$serializer = new JMSSerializerAdapter($liipSerializer, $jmsSerializer, new NullLogger(), $enabledClasses);
