Muchas gracias Javier !!
Concernant le comparatif de performances des ORM PHP.
- Êtes-vous d'accord avec ses conclusions sur la faiblesse de Doctrine ?
- Que répondez-vous à son interrogation sur le choix de Doctrine pour Symfony ?
- Et d'abord, est-ce vrai que Symfony s'oriente vers une préférence de Doctrine ?

Ca fait longtemps que je ne me suis plus mis à jour sur les développements de Symfony, je reviens, je suis intéressé par la future 1.1 et puis j'apprends ça ... si c'est vrai : bof bof.
