sDB4toPropelPlugin for symfony 1.2.x


The sDB4toPropelPlugin is a plugin that adds to symfony a new task: propel:db4-to-propel that allows you to convert a DB4 schema (a DBDesigner 4 schema) into a valid Propel schema.yml file.

It also allows you to use tables that are defined in other plugins or other schemas (for exemple you want a define a FK to the sf_guard_user table in one of your tables)

With this plugin you can just forget the boring work of building your schema.yml by hand and stay focused on the development of your application. It is very useful at the the beginning of a project when your model is not totally defined and may change quiet often. (new tables, i18n, new columns, refactoring, tests...)
