Changing GetPeople Method

We're changing PersonAppService.GetPeople method to include phone numbers of people into return value.

First, we're changing PersonListDto to contain a list of phones:

public class PersonListDto : FullAuditedEntityDto
    public string Name { get; set; }

    public string Surname { get; set; }

    public string EmailAddress { get; set; }

    public Collection<PhoneInPersonListDto> Phones { get; set; }

public class PhoneInPersonListDto : CreationAuditedEntityDto<long>
    public PhoneType Type { get; set; }

    public string Number { get; set; }

So, added also a DTO to transfer phone numbers and mapped from Phone entity. Now, we can change GetPeople method to get Phones from database:

public ListResultDto<PersonListDto> GetPeople(GetPeopleInput input)
    var persons = _personRepository
        .Include(p => p.Phones)
            p => p.Name.Contains(input.Filter) ||
                    p.Surname.Contains(input.Filter) ||
        .OrderBy(p => p.Name)
        .ThenBy(p => p.Surname)

    return new ListResultDto<PersonListDto>(ObjectMapper.MapTo<List<PersonListDto>>(persons));

And create mapping in CustomDtoMapper.cs:

configuration.CreateMap<Phone, PhoneInPersonListDto>();

We only added Include extension method to the query. Rest of the codes remains same. Furthermore, it would work without adding this, but much slower (since it will lazy load phone numbers for every person separately).
