The NestedPropertyDenormalizer can be very useful for denormalizing API responses into proper model entities, it works without any setters and can denormalize embed data and embed entity collections based on very simple annotations.

This denormalizer will only work on PHP classes with the @NestedPropertyDenormalizer annotation.


Configuration example


namespace FooBar\Model;

use Sidus\BaseSerializerBundle\Serializer\Annotation\NestedClass;
use Sidus\BaseSerializerBundle\Serializer\Annotation\NestedPropertyDenormalizer;

 * @NestedPropertyDenormalizer()
class Book
    /** @var string */
    protected $id;
     * @var \DateTimeInterface|null
     * @NestedClass(targetClass="DateTime")
    protected $publicationDate;
     * @var Author|null
     * @NestedClass(targetClass="FooBar\Model\Author")
    protected $author;

     * @var Edition[]
     * @NestedClass(targetClass="FooBar\Model\Edition", multiple=true)
    protected $editions = [];
    // Here be getters (no setters needed)

Note that the @NestedClass annotation can target any class.
