NAME

Test::IOC - Test IOC registries

SYNOPSIS

    use Test::More;
    use Test::IOC;

    use MyIOCStuff;

    service_exists("/app/log_file");
    service_is_literal("/app/log_file");
    
    service_exists("/app/logger");
    service_is_singleton("/app/logger");
    service_can("/app/logger", qw/warn debug/);

DESCRIPTION

This module provides some simple facilities to test IOC registries for correctness.

CAVEAT

This module is still in development, so use at your own risk. But then again, its for tests, so thats not very risky anyway.

EXPORTS

service_exists $path
container_exists $path

Checks that the path exists in the registry.

service_is $path, $spec
service_isa $path, $class
service_can $path, @methods
service_is_deeply $path, $spec

These methods provide tests akin to Test::More's is, isa_ok, can_ok and is_deeply, except that the first argument is used as a path to fetch from the registry.

service_is_singleton $path
service_is_literal $path
service_is_prototype $path

Checks that the service constructor class is of the right type for lifecycle management.

service_alias_ok $real, $alias

Check that the path $real has an alias $alias

container_list_is $parent_path, \@container_names
service_list_is $parent_path, \@service_names

Check that the child elements under $parent_path are as listed in the service name array reference. The names don't have to be sorte.

get_service_object $path

Utility function to get the IOC::Service object (not the service itself) for a given path.

locate_container $path

Utility function to call "locateContainer" in IOC::Registry.

locate_service $path

Utility function to call "locateService" in IOC::Registry.

search_for_container $name

Utility function to call "searchForContainer" in IOC::Registry.

search_for_service $name

Utility function to call "searchForService" in IOC::Registry.

BUGS

None that I am aware of. Of course, if you find a bug, let me know, and I will be sure to fix it.
