Subject [jira] Created: (TAP5-1313) Allow dynamic services to be created based on configuration
Date Mon, 18 Oct 2010 20:00:24 GMT
Allow dynamic services to be created based on configuration

                 Key: TAP5-1313
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-1313
             Project: Tapestry 5
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: tapestry-ioc
    Affects Versions: 5.2.2
            Reporter: Tom van Dijk

Dynamic services are services that are not defined at compile-time, but at runtime, just before
performing Registry startup.

Dynamic services are a useful concept for the implementation of a module that allows for multiple
Hibernate databases. Other modules can contribute markers to the Hibernate module. The Hibernate
module will then create the set of Hibernate services (HibernateSessionSource, HibernateSessionManager,
Session, etc) with marker annotations and service ids based on the configuration. These services
can be further configured with contributions, e.g. if there are databases with markers "One"
and "Two", these could cause HibernateEntityPackageManagerOne and HibernateEntityPackageManagerTwo
to be created, which can be configured with contributors contributeHibernateEntityPackageManagerOne()
and contributeHibernateEntityPackageManagerTwo.

I propose dynamic services as one of the possible solutions for allowing services to be created
after initial setup. The advantage of this method is that these services can be injected directly,
without using indirect constructs such as object providers, which have the disadvantage of
not being able to use the service lifecycle management Tapestry offers. It is also easier
and more intuitive to contribute to each individual service using the standard service mechanisms
in Tapestry rather than an indirect method, for example supplying the entire configuration
for all services to a hypothetical HibernateObjectsSource or HibernateConfiguration service.

Dynamic services have to be added prior to validateContributeDefs() in the constructor of
the Registry service. I will include a patch with the implementation of this feature and a
test case.
