Kevin Schroeder:
(Basic) Configuring the Magento 2 Dependency Injection Container
December 16, 2013 @ 12:03:22

Kevin Schroeder continues his series of posts looking at using Magento 2 and creating customizations of the application. In this latest post he builds on the previous post about dependency injection and shows how to configure Magento's container.

The purpose of that post was to, perhaps, make you less apprehensive about using DI combined with the DIC in Magento 2. However, in this post I want to go a little deeper into the DIC, implemented via the MagentoObjectManagerObjectManager class, and talk about how to configure it. Configuration for the DIC is done in each module's etc/di.xml file or etc//di.xml. Because you can split DIC configuration based on the area this tells you that the /config/ naming stuff is over; which I applaud.

He focuses more specifically on two of the child nodes that can be defined - "type" and "preference" (you can also have "virtualType" as well). First up is "type" and he gives a simple example class in his "HelloWorld" example that just takes in a message and returns it when asked. He shows it in use and how to set up the "di.xml" configuration for the class, defining the "message" parameter in the configuration instead of in the object fetch (like the first example).
