Description Fabien Dupont 2018-07-30 20:31:42 UTC
Currently, adding an embedded method doesn't resolve its dependencies. For example, one needs to rename a virtual machine in a method. The implementation is different for RHV and VMware, so it would be easier to have a facade method that calls the actual method for the provider.

Say that the method that needs to rename the VM is `/Stuff/MyProcess/RenameVM`. To be able to call a method from the utility class, it embeds it, say `/Stuff/VM/Common/Rename`. The actual implementation is provided by `/Stuff/VM/VMware/Rename` and `/Stuff/VM/RHV`. Naively, one would simply embed these two methods in `/Stuff/VM/Common/Rename`. But recursive dependency is not implemented and the methods will have to be embedded in `/Stuff/MyProcess/RenameVM`.

This RFE asks for recursive dependency implementation, so that embedding methods is kept simple from the user stand point.

Fixed! I can see code in appliance and also automate working with embedded methods dependency implementation.

Verified on:
Thank you!
