Castle Windsor Arrays In XML Configuration


Just a quick follow up on the array setup with castle windsor in code. Here is how you do it in XML. No the use of array and item around each item in the array. A point to not if you have complex user defined type that are not strings and integers etc you need to define a type converter to set these up. This goes for normal parameters as well. I’ll cover it in another article. Heres the code and XML.

using Castle.Windsor;
using Castle.Windsor.Configuration.Interpreters;

namespace CastleWindsorDemo
{

    public interface INotifier
    {
        void Notify();
    }

    public class Notifier : INotifier
    {
        private readonly string[] to;
        private readonly string from;

        public Notifier(string from, string[] to)
        {
            this.to = to;
            this.from = from;
        }

        public void Notify()
        {
            // Put code to send to people wishing to be notified here
        }
    }

    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            WindsorContainer container = new WindsorContainer(new XmlInterpreter());
            INotifier notifier = container.Resolve<INotifier>();
        }
    }
}


And XML

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
  <configSections>
    <section
        name="castle"
        type="Castle.Windsor.Configuration.AppDomain.CastleSectionHandler, Castle.Windsor" />
  </configSections>
  <castle>
    <components>
      <component id="notifier" 
                 service="CastleWindsorDemo.INotifier,CastleWindsorDemo" 
                 type="CastleWindsorDemo.Notifier,CastleWindsorDemo">
        <parameters>
          <from>
            system.predicate@gmail.com
          </from>
          <to>
            <array>
              <item>
                tim@hotmail.com
              </item>
              <item>
                tom@hotmail.com
              </item>
              <item>
                mary@hotmail.com
              </item>
            </array>
          </to>
        </parameters>
      </component>
    </components>
  </castle>
</configuration>
