Official Castle Project feedback forum

Welcome to the official feedback forum for Castle Project. Do you have an idea? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? Than share it!

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Allow components to persist the IWindsorInstaller type that added them to the container

    Where appropriate, store the installer type against the component to improve diagnostics.

    • Better diagnostics of leaked components

      Unfortunately, ITrackedComponentsDiagnostic interface injected into LifecycledComponentsReleasePolicy instance is not sufficient in my real world scenarios. In order to be able to quickly find the source of problems, I wanna see parent ComponentModels (or Handlers) that lead to leaked instance creation.
      The cleanest solution would be to add "ComponentModel[] Parents" property into Burden class, and the expose this information via ITrackedComponentsDiagnostic.
      This is not possible to implement now because Burden class has internal constructor.

      • Add a new category in debug visualizer for Castle Windsor

        The debug visualizer lists components that may be misconfigured, because the container does not know how to resolve all their dependencies. However, components show up here even if there is also registered a factory that will supply these dependencies. So, I don't really see these as "potentially misconfigured", though certainly some code could ask the container to resolve directly rather than going through the factory.

        I'd still like to know about these components, but they seem a bit "noisy" when lumped with components that really cannot be resolved.

        I think it would be helpful to add a separate category to…

        • Add a resolve method like ResolveInScope<IFoo>(IDisposable scope [, object args])

          We have implemented the new(?) LifeStyleScope. We begin a new scope for each new dialog/window to enable e.g. an optimale use of unit of works. It works well, but I had a lot of trouble to enable using factories (for our view models). Reason: because the components are created lazily within a factory, Windsor cannot select the correct instance. What we have done is to also make the factory's lifestyle scoped and pass all scoped components to it right after creation. The factory then passes those cached components as anonymous types during creation. That works for most scenarios.

          What I…

          • Mark TransactionScope.VoteCommit/VoteRollBack as virtual

            It'd be nice for unit testing if the VoteCommit and VoteRollBack methods could be intercepted, which requires they be virtual in TransactionScope.

            • Implement true many-to-one support for database relationships

              Many-to-one relationships are not correctly implemented, and the description on http://www.castleproject.org/activerecord/gettingstarted/relations.html is wrong.
              "Belongs to" and "Has many" both express a one-to-many relationship, and in fact are complimentary attributes.

              A "many to one" relationship consists of foreign keys in table A which reference ONE record in table B, but a record in table B may be referenced by MANY records in table A, hence "many to one". Just to clarify, table A is on the left, and many A records can reference one B record.

              As an example, consider some database that holds people records, automobile records, and the trips…

              • Reduce Total Assemblies - Merge Windsor into Castle.Core

                The perception is that many other containers are "lightweight"...I believe this perception has more to due with the number of assemblies (portability) than the lines of code or architecture.

                Given the very common usage of Caslte + Windsor, I'd like to see a merged version so that Windsor usage would require just a single assembly.

                In the case where a project isn't using Windsor the code would simply go unused much like the majority of the BCL that we don't use everyday but still travels in the assemblies.

                            For performance reasons it would be good to support indexes on foreign keys (BelongsTo) in ActiveRecord. NHibernate already supports this so it should not be difficult.

                              I want to be able to have composite (multiple properties) indexes (i.e. typically unique) which is not the primary key. For example { FirstName, MiddleName, LastName }. This allows the property values to be changed while still enforcing unique constraints.

                                • [DP] Unify proxy creation API

                                  Instead of current four types of proxies that add to the steepness of the learning curve for DP (and have their downsides) DynamicProxy should expose single type and single method (with overloads) that would handle different scenarios while not requiring user to learn too much lingo.

                                  More on it here (with sketches of the API and some discussion): http://using.castleproject.org/display/CASTLE/Dynamic+Proxy+3+design+meeting

                                  • [DP] Add Type Wrapping

                                    Type Wrapping would allow to wrap a type with another type (without inheriting from it) and mimic it's public interface (without overriding it) to add dynamic proxy capabilities to sealed methods/classes. This would work with scenarios that don't rely on the actual type, like WPF data binding or C# 4.0 dynamic.

                                    • Support Mono officially

                                      Mostly it would require:
                                      - Ensuring all tests run under Mono
                                      - Add Mono build to CI server
                                      - Provide Mono Binaries (?)

                                      ...anything else?

                                      • WCF Facility - Support mixin services

                                        when I have
                                        public class Foo:IFoo{}
                                        public class Bar:IBar{}

                                        both of which are service contract implementations I want to be able to host them both in a single service host with two endpoints exposed : IFoo & IBar forwarding calls to appropriate implementation.
