in reply to Dynamically wrapping multiple modules

I rolled my own, integrated with Net::Server::PreFork.
sub post_configure_hook { my $self = shift; $self->logObj( Logger->new(name => 'log/gaa') ); $self->xml( new XML::Simple(xmldecl => 1,forcearray => 1) ); # Go find all the modules find ({ no_chdir => 1, wanted => sub { $self->load_api_modules($File::Find::name) +}, follow =>1 }, 'api'); } # Load and create instances of each module in the search path sub load_api_modules{ my $self = shift; my $filename = shift; if ($filename =~ /\.pm$/) { my @file = split(/\//, $filename); require "$filename"; my @name = split(/\./, $file[$#file]); $self->{ "_$file[1]_$file[2]" } = $name[0]->new; } }
In my case, the input and the module name are the same. I grab an XML stream, determine the module to use, then call it via self.

It works well in this case, as it goes and dynamically finds any modules in the path, then loads them, so you dont need to know (explicitily) what is available.
