NAME ^

  GO::ObjFactory     - GO Object Factory

SYNOPSIS ^

You should not use this method directly

DESCRIPTION ^

You only need to be aware of this class if you are generating new objects. You should not directly create objects like this:

  $term = GO::Model::Term->new($h);

Instead you should create them like this:

  $fac = GO::ObjFactory->new();
  $term = $fac->create_term_obj($h);

Usually you do not need to instantiate a factory, as all objects created with a factory carry around a reference to that factory, so you can do this:

  # $graph object was previously created via a factory
  $term = $graph->create_term_obj($h);

If you are only using the go-perl module, then factories do not buy you much. However, if you are also using go-db-perl and GO::AppHandle, then factories can be useful - all objects generated from the database will be attached to an AppHandle which means that "lazy loading" can be used. See GO::AppHandle in go-db-perl for details
