NAME

Class::Factory::Enhanced - More functionality for Class::Factory

VERSION

version 1.101420

SYNOPSIS

    package My::Factory;
    use base 'Class::Factory::Enhanced';

    package Some::Class;
    My::Factory->add_factory_type(
        person_name    => 'Person::Name',
        person_address => 'Person::Address'
    );

DESCRIPTION

This class subclasses Class::Factory and adds some functionality.

METHODS

add_factory_type

Like Class::Factory's add_factory_type(), but this one can add several mappings at once. See the Synopsis for an example.

register_factory_type

Like Class::Factory's register_factory_type(), but this one can add several mappings at once.

make_object_for_type

    $factory->make_object_for_type('person_name',
        last_name  => 'Shindou',
        first_name => 'Hikaru',
    );

An alternative constructor that gets the class to be constructed from the factory, then calls new() on that class.

Takes as arguments the object type to be constructed and a list of arguments to be passed to the constructor (new()) of the newly constructed object.
