When you declare a module and you define a models folder then the framework automatically register all models in that folder for you using a namespace of @moduleName. This means that all models are registered according to their CFC name plus the namespace.

Info Internally, ColdBox uses WireBox's mapDirectory() to map the entire models directory for you.

Let's say you have a module called store and a OrderService.cfc inside of the models folder. That object will have a WireBox id of OrderService@store.

property name="orderService" inject="OrderService@store";

Hint You can alter this behavior by setting the this.autoMapModels configuration setting to false. You can also alter the namespace used via the this.modelNamespace configuration property.
