in reply to OO Design question: configuration

Take a look at IOC it is meant to solve just this kind of problem. We use it at $work for all our larger projects.

What it basically will do for you is to handle the creation and configuration of all your objects while transparently managing the interdependencies (even circular dependencies as well). You then fetch the objects you need from the IOC::Registry singleton, and they Just Work.

    Huge thanks for pointing me to this. I have never heard of IOC (now it's more popularly called DI - Dependency Injection) before, but it sounds just like the thing I had in mind.

      Yeah, I had it called that originally, the it grew into a larger "Inversion of Control" framework with the Proxy objects and such. However, once I started actually using it in practice, I found I had little need for the proxies, but by then it was too late to change the name.

      Plus, IOC was better as a namespace name, whereas DI is just kinda ugly :)
