OpenFrame::WebApp::Factory - abstract factory class
# abstract class - must override to use use OpenFrame::WebApp::Factory::Foo; my $factory = new OpenFrame::WebApp::Factory::Foo()->type('bar'); my $obj = $factory->new_object( @args );
OpenFrame::WebApp::Factory class is an abstract implementation of the factory design pattern. On creating a new factory you can specify the type of object it should create. Then you can ask the factory to create new objects of this type for you.
set/get object type. this is usually a mnemonic string, but it could even be a class name. how
typeis interpreted depends on the implementation.
- $class = $obj->get_types_class()
abstract method to get the class associated with type().
- $class = $obj->load_types_class()
load the class associated with type() if it has no
new()method. throws OpenFrame::WebApp::Error::LoadClass if there was a problem loading the class.
- $new_obj = $obj->new_object( ... )
creates a new object of the apprpriate class. passes all arguments on to the new() method in this class. tries to load the types class first.
