 Adapter.Composition 1.1.1301.1418

The provided ComposedAdapterService exports the IAdapterService interface, and "imports many" IAdapter implementations. Initialize your composition container so that it contains both the exported adapters and the adapter service, and it will be initialized automatically for use. ======= Example ======= // Initialize container with your assemblies/types/catalogs CompositionContainer container = new CompositionContainer(catalog); // Retrieve initialized adapter service IAdapterService service = container.GetExportedValue<IAdapterService>(); // Initialize the adapter facade with the service Adapters.SetService(service); // Use adapter extension method As as needed, i.e. // say we need to use it as an MSBuild project, if possible IMSBuildProject msbuild = project.As<IMSBuildProject>(); if (msbuild != null) // do MSBuild stuff with it. ======= Adapters ======= [Export(typeof(IAdapter))] public class ProjectToMsBuildAdapter : IAdapter<IProject, IMSBuildProject> { // Implement actual conversion. } Simply by exporting the right contract, the adapter service will locate it. Note that to create adapter implementations, you need to install the Adapter.Sdk package.

    <description>The provided ComposedAdapterService exports the IAdapterService interface, and "imports many" IAdapter implementations.
            
            Initialize your composition container so that it contains both the exported adapters and the adapter service, and it 
            will be initialized automatically for use.
            
            ======= Example =======
            // Initialize container with your assemblies/types/catalogs
            CompositionContainer container = new CompositionContainer(catalog);
            
            // Retrieve initialized adapter service
            IAdapterService service = container.GetExportedValue&lt;IAdapterService&gt;();
            
            // Initialize the adapter facade with the service
            Adapters.SetService(service);
            
            // Use adapter extension method As as needed, i.e.            
            // say we need to use it as an MSBuild project, if possible
            IMSBuildProject msbuild = project.As&lt;IMSBuildProject&gt;();
            if (msbuild != null)
                // do MSBuild stuff with it.
                
            ======= Adapters =======
            [Export(typeof(IAdapter))]
            public class ProjectToMsBuildAdapter : IAdapter&lt;IProject, IMSBuildProject&gt;
            {
                // Implement actual conversion.
            }

            Simply by exporting the right contract, the adapter service will locate it.

    <summary>Provides a MEF-friendly implementation that can be automatically initialized with exported adapters in the container.</summary>
    <releaseNotes>v1.1
* Additional support for source packages, like Adapter.Interfaces.Source,
  which also use token replacement and adopt the containing project 
  root namespace.

v1.0
* Initial version, with support for flexible matching of from and to types
* Support for MEF in separate Adapter.Composition package
* Proper split of: Adapter.Interfaces, Adapter.Sdk and Adapter (implementation).</releaseNotes>
