       Bread::Board::Manual - A manual for Bread::Board


       version 0.32


       As we have said, Bread::Board is an inversion of control framework with a focus on
       dependency injection and lifecycle management. The goal that Bread::Board strives towards
       is to promote more decoupled designs. It does this by removing the need for your objects
       to be concerned with resolving and/or creating their dependencies as well as knowing (or
       caring) what their lifecycle is.

   Why should I use Bread::Board
       First, it should be noted that Bread::Board and IoC are not universally useful. Smaller
       applications and one-off scripts would be overburdened by the abstractions of
       Bread::Board. But the larger your application becomes, the more something like
       Bread::Board can help.

       As applications grow so the management of resources and their dependencies becomes more of
       a burden. Making sure all your components are properly initialized, in the right order and
       at all times that you need them, can become a twisty maze. Bread::Board is intended to
       help you manage this twisty maze and remove the need for you to manage this manually.

       Take your typical Catalyst application, the Catalyst framework itself contains its own
       mini IoC framework through the component subsystem. Catalyst will manage your models and
       views making sure that they will be available when you need them in the controllers.
       Catalyst makes all this easy to manage through its configuration system. This is great
       inside your Catalyst application, but what about outside of it? Any sufficiently complex
       web application will have a set of scripts and/or command-line applications to help
       support it. At this point you are left to your own devices and must manage these
       components and their dependency chains on your own.

       By decoupling IoC into its own stand-alone subsystem it becomes possible to get that same
       ease-of-use you get inside something like a Catalyst application, outside of it.

       This, in a nutshell, is what Bread::Board aims to provide.


           This is perhaps the best place to start, it will introduce you to the basic concepts
           that make up Bread::Board.

           With Bread::Board you provide names for your service so that you can find them later.
           This document explores the new (read: experimental) typemap feature which allows you
           to map services to types as well.

           Bread::Board is an extensible and open system, this document will explore how you can
           extend Bread::Board and get greater re-use of your components.

           This is a set of examples meant to show how Bread::Board can be used in real-world
           scenarios. It is recommended that you read the above documentation first as many of
           these examples use the concepts discussed in them.
