IOC::Service::Prototype - An IOC Service object which returns a prototype instance
This class essentially can be used just like IOC::Service, the only difference is that it will return a new instance of the component each time rather than a singleton instance.

A Note about Lifecycles
One important distinction to make about this lifecycle as opposed to the singleton lifecycle is that we do not make any references to the component within the service, so you have total control over the scope of your component. This means that once the prototypical component you retrieved from a IOC::Service::Prototype container goes out of scope, it's
DESTROY method will be called (assuming all it's own references have been cleaned up).
This is the only method this subclass overrides. It changes this behavior to return a new instance of the component each time, as opposed to the normal Singleton instance.
- Work on the documentation
None that I am aware of. Of course, if you find a bug, let me know, and I will be sure to fix it.
I use Devel::Cover to test the code coverage of my tests, see the CODE COVERAGE section of IOC for more information.
- Prototype-style components are supported by the Spring Framework.
