Registering a Custom DSL

Last updated 19 days ago

To register a custom namespace in WireBox, place the following configuration in the wirebox struct defined within the configure() method of your WireBox binder CFC. in a ColdBox app, this is /config/WireBox.cfc. Alternatively, you can use the mapDSL() call in the configure() method.

component extends="coldbox.system.ioc.config.Binder" {
function configure(){
wirebox = {
// DSL Namespace registrations
customDSL = {
ortus = "path.model.dsl.MyDSL"
// Or here...

If you want to register a custom DSL namespace from a module, you can make the same call via the binder reference that is provided to your ModuleConfig.cfc.

component {
function configure() {

Now I can use the ortus DSL Namespace in my mappings DSL and even my annotations, isn't that cool!

// inject it into a CFC
property name="funky" inject="ortus:funkyObject";
// map it in your WireBox Binder

Dynamic Custom DSL Registration

Injectors allow you to register custom DSLs at runtime by using the registerDSL() method on any injector.

// Register Custom DSL
.registerDSL( namespace="javaloader", path="app.model.JavaLoaderDSL" );
