Informations about the package bernard-bundle


Integrates Bernard neatly with a Symfony application.

Build Status

Getting Started

Everything starts by installing the bundle. This is done through composer by adding the following lines to your composer.json file and running composer update bernard/bernard-bundle.

Next up is adding the bundle to your kernel and configuring it in config.yml.

Great! You are now ready to use this diddy. Go and read the rest of the documentation on Bernard at

Running the Consumer

What good is a message queue if you don't know how to run the consumer? Luckily this bundle auto registers the commands with your application. So if you run php app/console you should see bernard:consume and bernard:produce. These work just as the documentation describes but if you are in doubt just add --help when running the command.

It is important to use --no-debug when running the consumer for longer periods of time. This is because Symfony by default in debug mode collects a lot of information and logging and if this is omitted you will run into memory problems sooner or later.

Adding Receivers

In order to know what messages needs to go where you have to register some receivers. This is done with a tag in your service definitions.

As the example shows it is possible to register the same receiver for many different message types.

Configuration Options

There are different options that can be set that changes the behaviour for various drivers.


When using the doctrine driver it can be useful to use a seperate connection when using Bernard. In order to change it use the connection option. This also needs to be set if you default connection is called anything else than default.


The file driver needs to know what directory it should use for storing messages and its queue metadata.

The above example will dump your messages in the cache folder. In most cases you will want to change this to something because the cache folder is deleted every time the cache is cleared (obviously).

PhpAmqp / RabbitMQ

PhpAmqp depends on a service called old_sound_rabbit_mq.connection.default with a configured connection instance that extends \PhpAmqpLib\Connection\AbstractConnection class. If you want to use a different name use the phpamqp_service option:

You need to define the phpamqp_exchange. Optional, you can define phpamqp_default_message_parameters:


PhpRedis depends on a service called snc_redis.bernard with a configured Redis instance. If you want to use a different name use the phpredis_service option:

If you're using the SncRedisBundle you have to set logging to false for the bernhard client to ensure that is is a Redis instance and not wrapped. Also, if the consumer is throwing RedisException: read error on connection, you need to set connection_timeout (see SncRedisBundle configuration options) option to a value higher than 5 (seconds).


When using the IronMQ driver you have to configure an IronMQ connection instance. You can configure it like the following:
