Components reference

In the components construct, you refer to top-level component in the StyleBook by using the $components.<componentname> notation. If there are nested components within a top-level component, then the notation used is $components.<componentname>.components.<component-name> to refer to them, and so on.

Example:

**components**:

 -

     **name**: my-lbvserver-comp

     **type**: ns::lbvserver

     **properties**:

           **name**: $parameters.name + "-lb"

           **servicetype**: HTTP

           **ipv46**: $parameters.ip

           **port**: 80

           **lbmethod**: $parameters.lb-alg

  -

     **name**: my-svcg-comp

     **type**: ns::servicegroup

     **properties**:

          **name**: $parameters.name + "-svcgrp"

          **servicetype**: HTTP

 -

     **name**: members-svcg-comp

     **type**: ns::servicegroup\_servicegroupmember\_binding

     **repeat**: $parameters.svc-servers

     **repeat-item**: srv

     **properties**:

          **ip**: $srv

          **port**: str($parameters.svc-port)

          **servicegroupname**: $components.my-svcg-comp.properties.name

\-

     **name**: lbvserver-svg-binding-comp

     **type**: ns::lbvserver\_servicegroup\_binding

     **properties**:

            **name**: $components.my-lbvserver-comp.properties.name

            **servicegroupname**: $components.my-svcg-comp.properties.name

In this example, the components my-svcg-comp and my-lbvserver-comp have to be built before building the last component lbvserver-svg-binding-comp because there are references to these components in this last component. These references are provided by using the components references denoted by $components.<componentname>.
