Injecting dependencies within factories- container globals

Edit on GitHub

The ContainerInterface provides a way to make dependencies globally available. Every dependency added to ContainerInterface, that is marked as isGlobal, is available by using getProvidedDependency() in your factory.

To add something globally you need to add the dependency to the ContainerInterface and mark it as global.

<?php

namespace ProjectName\Application\Bundle\ApplicationPlugin;

use \Spryker\Shared\ApplicationExtension\Dependency\Plugin\ApplicationPluginInterface;

class YourApplicationPlugin implements ApplicationPluginInterface
{
    /**
     * {@inheritDoc}
     * - Adds global service.
     *
     * @api
     *
     * @param \Spryker\Service\Container\ContainerInterface $container
     *
     * @return \Spryker\Service\Container\ContainerInterface
     */
    public function provide(ContainerInterface $container): ContainerInterface
    {
        $container->set('Your service name', function () {
            return new YourService();
        });

        $container->configure('Your service name', ['isGlobal' => true]);
    }
    ...
}

To access this global dependency, call $this->getProvidedDependency('Your service name') inside your factory. With this approach, you can define such dependencies once instead of defining them each time for each module that uses them.
