Methods


addObjectDefinition(definition)

Registers a new object definition in the container.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
definition

The Identifiable ObjectDefinition reference to register in the container.

Inherited From:
Throws:

ArgumentError If the specified object definition is null or if this id attribut is null.


clearObjectDefinition()

Removes all the object definitions register in the container.

Inherited From:

clone()

Returns a shallow copy of this object.

Overrides:
Returns:

a shallow copy of this object.


getObject(id)

This method returns an object with the specified id in argument.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
id string

The index expression of the object to returns.

Returns:

The instance of the object with the id passed in argument.


getObjectDefinition(id)

Returns the ObjectDefinition object register in the container with the specified id.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
id string

The id name of the ObjectDefinition to return.

Inherited From:
Throws:

ArgumentError If the specified object definition don't exist in the container.

Returns:

the ObjectDefinition object register in the container with the specified id.


hasObjectDefinition(id)

Returns true if the object defines with the specified id is register in the container.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
id string

The id of the ObjectDefinition to search.

Inherited From:
Returns:

true if the object defines with the specified id is register in the container.


hasSingleton(id)

Indicates if a singleton reference is register in the factory with the specified id.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
id string

The index expression of the singleton.

Returns:

true if the singleton reference is register in the factory.


isDirty()

Indicates if the ObjectFactory is dirty, must flush this buffer of not lazy-init singleton object definitions. The user must execute the run or create methods to flush this buffer.

Returns:

true if the factory is dirty.


isLazyInit(id)

Indicates whether an object definition is to be lazily initialized.

Note: The default behavior for ObjectFactory implementations is to eagerly pre-instantiate all singleton object definitions at startup. If the object definition lazyInit attribute is set to true, the singleton will not be initialized until referenced by another object definition or explicitly retrieved from the enclosing ObjectFactory. If present and set to false, the object definition will be instantiated on startup by factories that perform eager initialization of singletons.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
id string

The index expression of the object to check.

Returns:

true if the specified object definition is lazyly initialized.


isLocked()

Returns true if the object is locked.

Inherited From:
Implements:
Returns:

true if the object is locked.


isSingleton(id)

This method defined if the scope of the specified object definition is singleton.

Parameters:
Name Type Description
id string

The index expression of the object to check.

Returns:

true if the object is a singleton.
