Dependency (package)

The dependency package is a subpackage in the Go worker library that provides constructs that help manage shared resources and their lifetimes. In Juju, it provides constructs that enable agents to run acyclic graphs of workers (i.e., workers and their dependencies, i.e., other workers).

Install

dependency.Install is a function that is used in the definition of an agent to install instances of the Manifolds type.

See more: Install, example usage of Install in the model agent

Manifolds

dependency.Manifolds is a type that is used in the definition of an agent to define a collection of things of the Manifold type.
