NAME ^

MooseX::AbstractFactory::Role - AbstractFactory behaviour as a Moose extension

SYNOPSIS ^

You shouldn't be using this on its own, but via MooseX::AbstractFactory

DESCRIPTION ^

Role to implement an AbstractFactory as a Moose extension.

SUBROUTINES/METHODS ^

create()

Returns an instance of the requested implementation.

    use MooseX::AbstractFactory;
    
        my $imp = My::Factory->create(
                'Implementation',
                { connection => 'Type1' },
        );

_validate_implementation_class()

Checks that the implementation class exists (via Class::MOP->load_class() ) to be used, and (optionally) that it provides the methods defined in _roles().

This can be overriden by a factory class definition if required: for example

        sub _validate_implementation_class {
                my $self = shift;
                return 1; # all implementation classes are valid :)
        }

_get_implementation_class()

By default, the factory figures out the class of the implementation requested by prepending the factory class itself, so for example

        my $imp = My::Factory->new(
                implementation => 'Implementation')

will return an object of class My::Factory::Implementation.

This can be overridden in the factory class by redefining the _get_implementation_class() method, for example:

        sub _get_implementation_class {
                my ($self, $class) = @_;
                return "My::ImplementationClasses::$class";
        }

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT ^

MooseX::AbstractFactory requires no configuration files or environment variables.

DEPENDENCIES ^

Moose, and Moose::Autobox

INCOMPATIBILITIES ^

None reported.
