NAME

Bolts::Blueprint::Factory - Build an artifact by calling a class method on a class

VERSION

version 0.143171

SYNOPSIS

    use Bolts;

    # Using the usual sugar...
    artifact thing1 => ( # construct via MyApp::Thing->new(...)
        class => 'MyApp::Thing',
    );

    artifact thing2 => ( # construct via MyApp::Thing->load_standard_thing(...)
        class  => 'MyApp::Thing',
        method => 'load_standard_thing',
    );

    # Or directly...
    my $meta = Bolts::Bag->start_bag;

    my $artifact = Bolts::Artifact->new(
        name      => 'thing',
        blueprint => $meta->locator->acquire('blueprint', 'factory', {
            class  => 'MyApp::Thing',
            method => 'new',
        }),
        scope     => $meta->locator->acquire('scope', '_'),
    );

DESCRIPTION

Most applications of Bolts will make a great deal of use of this. It allows you to use a class name and a class method name to construct an object. This is the most straightforward way of constructing things and the way most easily inferred from.

ROLES

ATTRIBUTES

class

Required. This is the name of the class to call the "method" upon. This class will also be automatically loaded if it hasn't been loaded into the current Perl interpreter yet.

method

This is the method to call on the "class". Defaults to "new".

METHODS

builder

Loads the "class" if it has not yet been loaded. Then calls the "method" on it, passing through to the constructor whatever parameters were configured during pre-injection.
