Symfony & Doctrine getting a joined query to work

I've got an SQL query that returns all the rows in one table (country) which have a related entry in another table (ducks) but I'm struggling to turn this into DQL. This is a standard one-many relationship as each country can have multiple ducks, I believe it is all set up correctly as I can return ducks within a country and return the country a duck is in using standard code.

The working query is:

SELECT c.* FROM country c INNER JOIN ducks d ON = d.country_id GROUP BY ORDER BY ASC

I've tried converting this to:

SELECT c FROM WfukDuckBundle:Country c INNER JOIN WfukDuckBundle:Ducks d ON = d.country_id GROUP BY ORDER BY ASC

which produces the following error:

[Semantical Error] line 0, col 79 near 'd ON': Error: Identification Variable WfukDuckBundle:Ducks used in join path expression but was not defined before.

I'm quite new to Symfony/Doctrine so I suspect it's probably something obvious!

I'm using Symfony 2.0.11 with doctrine

Update: I've Also tried:

SELECT c FROM WfukDuckBundle:Country c INNER JOIN c.ducks d ON = d.country_id GROUP BY ORDER BY ASC

where 'ducks' is defined in the Country class as:

/** * @ORM\OneToMany(targetEntity="Ducks", mappedBy="country") */ protected $ducks; public function __construct() { $this->ducks = new ArrayCollection(); }

the definition for country in the ducks class is:

/** * @ORM\ManyToOne(targetEntity="Country", inversedBy="ducks") * @ORM\JoinColumn(name="country_id", referencedColumnName="id") */ private $country;

-------------Problems Reply------------

Do yourself a favour and use the query builder. Easier to read and update and reuse your queries


namespace Vendor\Prefix\Repository;

use Doctrine\ORM\EntityRepository;

class SomeRepository extends EntityRepository
public function countryDucks()
// $em is the entity manager
$qb = $em->createQueryBuilder();

->select('country', 'duck')
->from('WfukDuckBundle:Country', 'country')
->innerJoin('country.ducks', 'duck')
->orderBy('', 'ASC')

$query = $qb->getQuery();

// Potential Hydration Modes
// --------------------------------
// Doctrine\ORM\Query::HYDRATE_OBJECT
// Will give you an array of your object entities
// --------------------------------
// Doctrine\ORM\Query::HYDRATE_ARRAY
// Will give you an array mimicking
// your object graph
// --------------------------------

return $query->getResult(\Doctrine\ORM\Query::HYDRATE_ARRAY);
