Deprecation: #97354 - ExpressionBuilder methods andX() and orX()

See forge#97354

Description

doctrine/dbal deprecated the ExpressionBuilder methods andX() and orX. Therefore, those methods have also been deprecated in the core facade class (\TYPO3\CMS\Core\Database\Query\Expression\ExpressionBuilder), to avoid shifting too far away.

Impact

Using ExpressionBuilder->andX() and ExpressionBuilder->orX() will raise a deprecation level log entry when called.

Affected Installations

All installations, using the deprecated methods ExpressionBuilder->andX() and ExpressionBuilder->orX() in custom extension code. The extension scanner will detect any usage as weak match.

Migration

Extensions should use the corresponding replacement:

  • ExpressionBuilder->andX() -> ExpressionBuilder->and()

  • ExpressionBuilder->orX() -> ExpressionBuilder->or()

Note

The replacement methods have already been added in a forward-compatible way in TYPO3 v11. Thus giving extension developers the ability to adopt new methods and still being able to support multiple core versions without workarounds.

For example, the following select query:

$rows = $queryBuilder
  ->select(...)
  ->from(...)
  ->where(
    $queryBuilder->expr()->andX(...),   // replace with and(...)
    $queryBuilder->expr()->orX(...)     // replace with or(...)
  )
  ->executeQuery()
  ->fetchAllAssociative();

should be replaced with:

$rows = $queryBuilder
  ->select(...)
  ->from(...)
  ->where(
    $queryBuilder->expr()->and(...), // replacement for andX(...)
    $queryBuilder->expr()->or(...)   // replacement for orX(...)
  )
  ->executeQuery()
  ->fetchAllAssociative();
