If you don't want to add it in a parameter then you already suspect that you are doing something wrong. Using a singleton instead of passing a parameter doesn't make the dependency not there. It's just obscures it.
I might not fully understand what you want to do but I think what you want is to have MOM expect a certain interface. Then have an adapter class bridging the two interfaces. The pass the wrapped CIF to MOM. ----- Original Message ----- > From: "Mark Wu" <wu...@linux.vnet.ibm.com> > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Cc: "Dan Kenigsberg" <dan...@redhat.com>, "Saggi Mizrahi" > <smizr...@redhat.com>, "Adam Litke" <a...@us.ibm.com>, "Ryan > Harper" <ry...@us.ibm.com> > Sent: Wednesday, May 30, 2012 10:49:29 AM > Subject: VDSM API/clientIF instance design issue > > Hi Guys, > > Recently, I has been working on integrate MOM into VDSM.
