Manual Inflation

If you pass a CFC with properties but it does not have the autoInflate attribute like above, the data will still be stored as a JSON struct, but without the extra metadata about the CFC. When retrieving this document, you will just get a struct back by default. You can build a CFC yourself, or specify an inflateTo argument to instruct CFCouchbase on how to reinflate your data back to an object. You can pass in a component path (or component instance) and the SDK will instantiate that component and call its property setters to repopulate it with the data from Couchbase.

// path
person = client.get(
    id = "funkyChicken",
    inflateTo = "path.to.song"
);

// instance
person = client.get(
    id = "funkyChicken",
    inflateTo = new path.to.Song()
);

If you need even more control such as performing dependency injection, passing constructor arguments to the CFC, or dynamically choosing the component to create, you can supply a closure that acts as a provider and produces an empty object ready to be populated.

person = client.get(
    id = "funkyChicken",
    inflateTo = function( document ){
        // Let WireBox create and autowire an instance for us
        return wirebox.getInstance( 'path.to.song' );
    }
);

If you are getting multiple documents back from Couchbase, your inflateTo closure will be called once per document.

You can even use inflate to when retrieving result sets, or querying Couchbase views and you'll get an array of populated CFCs!
