Subject [jira] [Commented] (POLYGENE-279) Custom @Structure injection types
Date Sat, 02 Dec 2017 10:22:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/POLYGENE-279?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16275499#comment-16275499

Niclas Hedhman commented on POLYGENE-279:

I don't think this should be visible in the API, so we are targeting for SPI level feature.

public interface StructureHolder
    Module module();

should be enough to handle everything so far. And then if the injected object is a Transient,
then any Service it needs to interact with is done through regular injection or serviceFinder,
either in the module the Transient is declared or for the module where it was injected. This
becomes implementation detail and use-case specific, which I think is a good thing.

In ModuleSpi we add;

    <T> T findStructureComponent( Class<T> structureType);

to look up any of these structure types. A better name than StructureComponent is probably
needed. Maybe StructureComposite.

> Use-case 1; UnitOfWorkFactory is currently depending on a UnitOfWorkFactory declaration
in every module where one need it injected, or otherwise one risk having the wrong visibility
established. The current behavior is a design flaw, not present in earlier Qi4j versions.
> Use-case 2; MetricsProvider should be able to create module-specific (or module-aware)
Metric instances, without having to be declared in every module where metrics are needed.
> Use-case 3; IdentityManager should be allowed to generate IDs that use module names,
without being declared in every module.
> Currently, we don't have any particular types that deal with @Structure injections, nothing
that holds the additional information needed. But there is a need to be both a singleton,
i.e. a Service as well as a unique object that is injected into the target composite.
