VS::RuleEngine::Declare - Declarative interface for VS::RuleEngine engines

SYNOPSIS ^

      };
      
      input "input1" => instanceof "MyApp::Input" => with_defaults "d1";
      input "input2" => $input;

      rule "rule1" => instanceof "MyApp::Rule" => with_args { input => "input1" };

FUNCTIONS

engine BLOCK

Creates a new engine.

action NAME [=> instanceof CLASS [ => with_defaults DEFAULTS ] [ => with_args ARGS]]
action NAME => INSTANCE
action NAME => does BLOCK

Creates a new action and registers it in the engine as NAME. If an object is passed it must conform to VS::RuleEngine::Action.

input NAME [=> instanceof CLASS [ => with_defaults DEFAULTS ] [ => with_args ARGS]]
input NAME => INSTANCE
input NAME => does BLOCK

Creates a new input and registers it in the engine as NAME. If an object is passed it must conform to VS::RuleEngine::Input.

output NAME [=> instanceof CLASS [ => with_defaults DEFAULTS ] [ => with_args ARGS]]
output NAME => INSTANCE
output NAME => does BLOCK

Creates a new output and registers it in the engine as NAME. If an object is passed it must conform to VS::RuleEngine::Output.

prehook NAME [=> instanceof CLASS [ => with_defaults DEFAULTS ] [ => with_args ARGS]]
prehook NAME => INSTANCE
prehook NAME => does BLOCK

Creates a new prehook and registers it in the engine as NAME. If an object is passed it must conform to VS::RuleEngine::Hook.

Prehooks are evaulated in the order they are declared.

posthook NAME [=> instanceof CLASS [ => with_defaults DEFAULTS ] [ => with_args ARGS]]
posthook NAME => INSTANCE
posthook NAME => does BLOCK

Creates a new posthook and registers it in the engine as NAME. If an object is passed it must conform to VS::RuleEngine::Hook.

Posthooks are evaulated in the order they are declared.

rule NAME [=> instanceof CLASS [ => with_defaults DEFAULTS ] [ => with_args ARGS]]
rule NAME => INSTANCE
rule NAME => does BLOCK

Creates a new rule and registers it in the engine as NAME. If an object is passed it must conform to VS::RuleEngine::Rule.

Rules are evaulated in the order they are declared unless an order has explicitly been defined using rule_order. d

run ACTIONS => when RULES

Runs the list of ACTION when the given RULES matches.

with_args HASHREF

Creates a argument set for the entity.

with_defaults DEFAULT | DEFAULTS

Use the defaults defined by DEFAULT or multiple defaults defined by the ARRAY referene DEFAULTS.

as NAME

Checks that NAME is a valid name and returns it if so. Otherwise throws an exception.

instanceof CLASS

Marks the declared entity to be an instance of the given CLASS.

defaults NAME => ARGUMENTS

Creates a new arguent set with the given NAME and arguments. ARGUMENTS must be a hash reference.

does BLOCK

Marks the declared entity to be implemented via a Perl subroutine.

load_module MODULE

Load the module MODULE.
