Ok, I am running into the following situation: Looking at
components.modules.input.AbstractMetaModule it defines that it is
Composable and assigns the component manager to a protected member
variable. A subclass, ChainMetaModule, uses the component manager to
lookup a dependency. This means ChainMetaModule should redefine the
compose()/ (->service()) method in order to declare its dependencies.
So, in order to avoid this I'd like to put the dependency tags above at
class declaration level instead of directly above the service() method.
Can I do this?
