Doctrine is an object-relational mapping framework for PHP 7 or later. This open-source tool lets developers work with databases as if they were using regular PHP objects. The framework provides a set of modular and decoupled components that can be used individually or pieced together, making it easy to create scalable applications without worrying much about database complexity.Doctrine's primary library offers support for lazy loading, caching, identity map pattern, snapshot isolation and many other features from different database systems; this helps reduce queries per request and increases the performance of developer applications.
