Scoping Process

The scoping process must be done by using some of the referenced injector's methods:
  • buildInstance(mapping, initArguments)
  • autowire()
These methods must be called sequentially in order to avoid circular reference locks. The first method buildInstance is used to construct and initialize an object instance. The autowire method is used then to process DI and AOP on the targeted object. Let's look at the RequestScope object:
/**
* Copyright Since 2005 ColdBox Framework by Luis Majano and Ortus Solutions, Corp
* www.ortussolutions.com
* ---
* A scope that leverages the request scope
*
* @see coldbox.system.ioc.scopes.IScope
**/
component accessors="true" {
/**
* Injector linkage
*/
property name="injector";
/**
* Log Reference
*/
property name="log";
/**
* Configure the scope for operation and returns itself
*
* @injector The linked WireBox injector
* @injector.doc_generic coldbox.system.ioc.Injector
*
* @return coldbox.system.ioc.scopes.IScope
*/
function init( required injector ){
variables.injector = arguments.injector;
variables.log = arguments.injector.getLogBox().getLogger( this );
return this;
}
/**
* Retrieve an object from scope or create it if not found in scope
*
* @mapping The linked WireBox injector
* @mapping.doc_generic coldbox.system.ioc.config.Mapping
* @initArguments The constructor struct of arguments to passthrough to initialization
*/
function getFromScope( required mapping, struct initArguments ){
var cacheKey = "wirebox:#arguments.mapping.getName()#";
// Check if already in request scope
if ( NOT structKeyExists( request, cacheKey ) ) {
// some nice debug info.
if ( variables.log.canDebug() ) {
variables.log.debug(
"Object: (#arguments.mapping.getName()#) not found in request scope, beginning construction."
);
}
// construct it and store it, to satisfy circular dependencies
var target = variables.injector.buildInstance( arguments.mapping, arguments.initArguments );
request[ cacheKey ] = target;
// wire it
variables.injector.autowire( target = target, mapping = arguments.mapping );
// log it
if ( variables.log.canDebug() ) {
variables.log.debug(
"Object: (#arguments.mapping.getName()#) constructed and stored in Request scope."
);
}
return target;
}
return request[ cacheKey ];
}
/**
* Indicates whether an object exists in scope
*
* @mapping The linked WireBox injector
* @mapping.doc_generic coldbox.system.ioc.config.Mapping
*
* @return coldbox.system.ioc.scopes.IScope
*/
boolean function exists( required mapping ){
var cacheKey = "wirebox:#arguments.mapping.getName()#";
return structKeyExists( request, cacheKey );
}
}
Caution Always make sure that you use the buildInstance method and then store the results in the scope before wiring is done to avoid endless loops errors.
