NAME

MooseX::Does::Delegated - allow your class's DOES method to respond the affirmative to delegated roles

SYNOPSIS

   use strict;
   use Test::More;
   
   {
      package HttpGet;
      use Moose::Role;
      requires 'get';
   };
   
   {
      package UserAgent;
      use Moose;
      with qw( HttpGet );
      sub get { ... };
   };
   
   {
      package Spider;
      use Moose;
      has ua => (
         is         => 'ro',
         does       => 'HttpGet',
         handles    => 'HttpGet',
         lazy_build => 1,
      );
      sub _build_ua { UserAgent->new };
   };
   
   my $woolly = Spider->new;
   
   # Note that the default Moose implementation of DOES
   # ignores the fact that Spider has delegated the HttpGet
   # role to its "ua" attribute.
   #
   ok(     $woolly->DOES('Spider') );
   ok( not $woolly->DOES('HttpGet') );
   
   Moose::Util::apply_all_roles(
      'Spider',
      'MooseX::Does::Delegated',
   );
   
   # Our reimplemented DOES pays attention to delegated roles.
   #
   ok( $woolly->DOES('Spider') );
   ok( $woolly->DOES('HttpGet') );
   
   done_testing;

DESCRIPTION

According to UNIVERSAL the point of DOES is that it allows you to check whether an object does a role without caring about how it does the role.

However, the default Moose implementation of DOES (which you can of course override!) only checks whether the object does the role via inheritance or the application of a role to a class.

This module overrides your object's DOES method, allowing it to respond the affirmative to delegated roles. This module is a standard Moose role, so it can be used like this:

   with qw( MooseX::Does::Delegated );

Alternatively, if you wish to apply this role ubiqitously (i.e. to all Moose objects in your application) - as is your prerogative - you can use:

   use MooseX::Does::Delegated -everywhere;

This will apply the role to the Moose::Object base class.
