Public Module Properties
Here is a listing of all public properties that can be defined in a module.
Property
Type
Required
Default
Description
title
string
false
---
The title of the module
author
string
false
---
The author of the module
webURL
string
false
---
The web URL associated with this module. Maybe for documentation, blog, links, etc.
description
string
false
---
A short description about the module
version
string
false
---
The version of the module
viewParentLookup
boolean
false
true
If true, coldbox checks for views in the parent overrides first, then in the module. If false, coldbox checks for views in the module first, then the parent.
layoutParentLookup
boolean
false
true
If true, coldbox checks for layouts in the parent overrides first, then in the module. If false, coldbox checks for layouts in the module first, then the parent.
entryPoint
route
false
---
The module's default route (ex:/forgebox) that ColdBox will use to create an entry point pattern link into the module. Similar to the default event setting. The SES interceptor will also use this to auto-register the module's routes if used by calling the method addModuleRoutes() for you.
inheritEntryPoint
boolean
false
false
If true, then the entrypoint will be constructed by looking at its parent hierarchy chain. This is a great way to build automated nesting schemas for APIs
activate
boolean
false
true
You can tell ColdBox to register the module but NOT to activate it. By default, all modules activate.
parseParentSettings
boolean
false
true
If true, ColdBox will merge any settings found in moduleSettings[ this.modelNamespace ] in the config/ColdBox.cfc file with the module settings, overriding them where the keys are the same. Otherwise, settings in the module will override the parent configuration.
aliases
array
false
[]
An array of names that can be used to execute the module instead of only the module folder name
autoMapModels
boolean
false
true
Will automatically map all model objects under the models folder in WireBox using @modulename as part of the alias.
autoProcessModels
boolean
false
false
If false, then all models will not be processed by WireBox metadata to improve performance. If true, then all object models will be inspected for metadata which can be time consuming.
cfmapping
string
false
empty
The ColdFusion mapping that should be registered for you that points to the root of the module.
disabled
boolean
false
false
You can manually disable a module from loading and registering
dependencies
array
false
[]
An array of dependent module names. All dependencies will be registered and activated FIRST before the module declaring them.
modelNamespace
string
false
moduleName
The name of the namespace to use when registering models in WireBox. By default it uses the name of the module.
applicationHelper
array
false
[]
An array of files from the module to load as application helper UDF mixins
Below you can see an example of declarations for the configuration object:

this.version = "1.0.0";

this.viewParentLookup = true;
