This Bundle provides basic PSX functionalities to Symfony. PSX is a framework to build RESTful APIs. The bundle contains two annotations Incoming and Outgoing which give the option to specify a JSONSchema for the incoming or outgoing data. PSX formats the request and response according to the provided schema. The bundle registers a kernel.controller and kernel.response listener to handle the validation and transformation. More information about PSX at


In the following a sample controller to showcase the usage. You have to use the DataResponse object in your controller methods so that PSX can transform the data. If no outgoing schema was defined all data passthru.


namespace AppBundle\Controller;

use Sensio\Bundle\FrameworkExtraBundle\Configuration\Route;
use Sensio\Bundle\FrameworkExtraBundle\Configuration\Method;
use Symfony\Bundle\FrameworkBundle\Controller\Controller;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Request;
use PSX\PSXBundle\Configuration\Incoming;
use PSX\PSXBundle\Configuration\Outgoing;
use PSX\PSXBundle\DataResponse;

class DefaultController extends Controller
     * @Method({"GET"})
     * @Route("/", name="index")
     * @Outgoing("schema/incoming.json")
    public function indexAction(Request $request)
        return new DataResponse([
            'firstName' => 'bar',
            'lastName' => 'bar'

     * @Method({"POST"})
     * @Route("/", name="new")
     * @Incoming("schema/outgoing.json")
    public function newAction(Request $request)
        $data = $request->attributes->get(Context::REQUEST_BODY);

        // @TODO work with the parsed data
        // $data->getFirstName();

        return new DataResponse([
            'success' => true,
            'message' => 'Success!'

Using the following JSON schema at app/schema/incoming.json and app/schema/outgoing.json

    "title": "foo",
    "type": "object",
    "properties": {
        "firstName": {
            "type": "string"
        "lastName": {
            "type": "string"
        "age": {
            "description": "Age in years",
            "type": "integer",
            "minimum": 0
    "required": ["firstName", "lastName"]
