NAME

Bread::Board::Container

VERSION

version 0.33

DESCRIPTION

This class implements the container for Bread::Board: a container is a thing that contains services and other containers. Each container and service has a name, so you end up with a tree of named nodes, just like files and directories in a filesystem: each item can be referenced using a path (see Bread::Board::Traversable for the details).

ATTRIBUTES

name

Read/write string, required. Every container needs a name, by which it can be referenced when fetching it.

services

Hashref, constrained by Bread::Board::Container::ServiceList, mapping names to services directly contained in this container. Every service added here will have its parent set to this container.

You can pass an arrayref of services instead of a hashref, the keys will be the names of the services.

You should probably use "add_service" and "get_service" to manipulate this attribute, instead of modifying it directly.

sub_containers

Hashref, constrained by Bread::Board::Container::SubContainerList, mapping names to containers directly contained in this container. Every container added here will have its parent set to this container.

You can pass an arrayref of containers instead of a hashref, the keys will be the names of the containers.

You should probably use "add_sub_container" and "get_sub_container" to manipulate this attribute, instead of modifying it directly.

Containers added here can either be normal Bread::Board::Container or Bread::Board::Container::Parameterized.

METHODS

add_service

  $container->add_service($service);

Adds a service into the "services" map, using its name as the key.

get_service

  my $service = $container->get_service($name);

Returns a service by name, or undef if there's no such service in the "services" map.

has_service

  if ($container->has_service($name)) { ... }

Returns true if a service with the given name name exists in the "services" map, false otherwise.

has_services

  if ($container->has_services) { ... }

Returns true if the "services" map contains any services, false if it's empty.

get_service_list

  my @service_names = $container->get_service_list();

Returns the names off all services present in the "services" map.

add_sub_container

  $container->add_sub_container($container);

Adds a container into the "sub_containers" map, using its name as the key.

get_sub_container

  my $container = $container->get_sub_container($name);

Returns a container by name, or undef if there's no such container in the "sub_containers" map.

has_sub_container

  if ($container->has_sub_container($name)) { ... }

Returns true if a container with the given name name exists in the "sub_containers" map, false otherwise.

has_sub_containers

  if ($container->has_sub_containers) { ... }

Returns true if the "sub_containers" map contains any contains, false if it's empty.

get_sub_container_list

  my @container_names = $container->get_sub_container_list();

Returns the names off all containers present in the "sub_containers" map.

add_type_mapping_for

  $containers->add_type_mapping_for( $type_name, $service );

Adds a mapping from a Moose type to a service: whenever we try to resolve that type, we'll use that service to instantiate it.

get_type_mapping_for

  my $service = $container->get_type_mapping_for( $type_name );

Returns the service to use to instantiate the given type name.

Important: if a mapping for the exact type can't be found, but a mapping for a subtype of it can, you'll get the latter instead:

  package Superclass { use Moose };
  package Subclass { use Moose; exends 'Superclass' };

  $c->add_type_mapping_for(
   'Subclass',
   Bread::Board::ConstructorInjection->new(name=>'sc',class=>'Subclass'),
 );
 my $o = $c->get_type_mapping_for('Superclass')->get;

$o is an instance of Subclass. If there are more than one sub-type mapped, you get a random one. This is probably a bad idea.

has_type_mapping_for

  if ($container->has_type_mapping_for( $type_name )) { ... }

Returns true if we have a service defined to instantiate the given type name, but see the note on get_type_mapping_for about subtype mapping.

resolve

  my $object = $container->resolve(service=>$service_name);
  my $object = $container->resolve(service=>$service_name,parameters=>\%p);

When given a service name, this method will fetch the service, then call get on it, optionally passing the given parameters.

  my $object = $container->resolve(type=>$type);
  my $object = $container->resolve(type=>$type,parameters=>\%p);

When given a type name, this method will use get_type_mapping_for to get the service, then call get on it, optionally passing the given parameters. If the instance is not of the expected type, the method will die.
