  • Service::setFactory(string $factory): Service

    It's the factory static method used to make object.

    Example: MyProject\Name\Space\MyFactory::service


New instance of a class or object:

$instantiator = new Instantiator();
$object = $instantiator->newInstanceOf(MyClass::class,
                                       ['argument1' => 'Value',
                                        'argument3' => 'Value',
                                        'argument2' => 'Value']);

Invoke a method:

$instantiator = new Instantiator();
                            ['argument1' => 'Value',
                             'argument3' => 'Value',
                             'argument2' => 'Value']);

Invoke a function:

$instantiator = new Instantiator();
                              ['argument1' => 'Value',
                               'argument3' => 'Value',
                               'argument2' => 'Value']);

In all examples cases, the last argument is an array of parameters to give to the constructor, method or function. The order of arguments is not important.

In case of a parameter is an object, the system get the classes implemented to inject in good parameter.
