16.4. Implementing User Entity

The User Demo sample uses Doctrine ORM for managing the database. We have already learned how to use Doctrine in Database Management with Doctrine ORM.

For storing information about users in the database, we will create the User entity. The User entity is mapped onto the user database table. It is a typical Doctrine entity class.

Create the User.php file inside the Entity directory under the module's source directory. Put the following code into that file:

<?php
namespace User\Entity;

use Doctrine\ORM\Mapping as ORM;

/**
 * This class represents a registered user.
 * @ORM\Entity()
 * @ORM\Table(name="user")
 */
class User 
{
    // User status constants.
    const STATUS_ACTIVE       = 1; // Active user.
    const STATUS_RETIRED      = 2; // Retired user.
    
    /**
     * @ORM\Id
     * @ORM\Column(name="id")
     * @ORM\GeneratedValue
     */
    protected $id;

    /** 
     * @ORM\Column(name="email")  
     */
    protected $email;
    
    /** 
     * @ORM\Column(name="full_name")  
     */
    protected $fullName;

    /** 
     * @ORM\Column(name="password")  
     */
    protected $password;

    /** 
     * @ORM\Column(name="status")  
     */
    protected $status;
    
    /**
     * @ORM\Column(name="date_created")  
     */
    protected $dateCreated;
        
    /**
     * @ORM\Column(name="pwd_reset_token")  
     */
    protected $passwordResetToken;
    
    /**
     * @ORM\Column(name="pwd_reset_token_creation_date")  
     */
    protected $passwordResetTokenCreationDate;
    
    /**
     * Returns user ID.
     * @return integer
     */
    public function getId() 
    {
        return $this->id;
    }

    /**
     * Sets user ID. 
     * @param int $id    
     */
    public function setId($id) 
    {
        $this->id = $id;
    }

    /**

    public function getEmail() 
    {
        return $this->email;
    }

    /**

    public function setEmail($email) 
    {
        $this->email = $email;
    }
    
    /**
     * Returns full name.
     * @return string     
     */
    public function getFullName() 
    {
        return $this->fullName;
    }       

    /**
     * Sets full name.
     * @param string $fullName
     */
    public function setFullName($fullName) 
    {
        $this->fullName = $fullName;
    }
    
    /**

    public function getStatus()

        return $this->status;
    }

    /**

     * @return array
     */
    public static function getStatusList() 
    {
        return [
            self::STATUS_ACTIVE => 'Active',
            self::STATUS_RETIRED => 'Retired'
        ];
    }    
    
    /**
     * Returns user status as string.
     * @return string
     */
    public function getStatusAsString()
    {
        $list = self::getStatusList();
        if (isset($list[$this->status]))
            return $list[$this->status];
        
        return 'Unknown';
    }    
    
    /**

    public function setStatus($status) 
    {
        $this->status = $status;
    }   
    
    /**
     * Returns password.
     * @return string

    public function getPassword() 
    {

    }
    
    /**

    public function setPassword($password) 
    {
        $this->password = $password;
    }
    
    /**

     * @return string     
     */
    public function getDateCreated() 
    {
        return $this->dateCreated;
    }
    
    /**
     * Sets the date when this user was created.
     * @param string $dateCreated     
     */
    public function setDateCreated($dateCreated) 
    {
        $this->dateCreated = $dateCreated;
    }    
    
    /**
     * Returns password reset token.
     * @return string
     */
    public function getResetPasswordToken()
    {
        return $this->passwordResetToken;
    }
    
    /**
     * Sets password reset token.
     * @param string $token
     */
    public function setPasswordResetToken($token) 
    {
        $this->passwordResetToken = $token;
    }
    
    /**
     * Returns password reset token's creation date.
     * @return string
     */
    public function getPasswordResetTokenCreationDate()
    {
        return $this->passwordResetTokenCreationDate;
    }
    
    /**
     * Sets password reset token's creation date.
     * @param string $date
     */
    public function setPasswordResetTokenCreationDate($date) 
    {
        $this->passwordResetTokenCreationDate = $date;
    }
}

As you can see from the code above, the User entity is a typical Doctrine entity having annotated properties and getter and setter methods for retrieving/setting those properties.
