Breaking: #92238 - Service injection in Extbase validators

See Issue #92238

Description

With the deprecation and removal of objectManager usage in TYPO3, Extbase does not use the objectManager to create validator instances any more.

Note

This has been mitigated with recent TYPO3 v11 core releases: Extbase validators can use dependency injection again. See this changelog for details. Additionally, all validators delivered by EXT:extbase and EXT:form will be marked final in v12. Extensions can no longer extend validators but must extend abstract classes or implement the interfaces directly.

Impact

Validators that use dependency injection will experience non injected services for affected properties.

Affected Installations

All installations that use dependency injection in Extbase validators.

Migration

Instead of injecting services to the validator, use GeneralUtility::makeInstance to create an instance of required services.

Given the following example for a service injection in a validator:

/**
 * @var ConfigurationManagerInterface
 */
protected $configurationManager;

/**
 * @param ConfigurationManagerInterface $configurationManager
 */
public function injectConfigurationManager(ConfigurationManagerInterface $configurationManager)
{
    $this->configurationManager = $configurationManager;
}

Since the configurationManager is required globally in the class, GeneralUtility::makeInstance is used in the constructor of the validator to create an instance of the service.

/**
 * @var ConfigurationManagerInterface
 */
protected $configurationManager;

public function __construct(array $options = [])
{
    $this->configurationManager = GeneralUtility::makeInstance(ConfigurationManagerInterface::class);
    parent::__construct($options);
}

In order to create instances of services that require dependency injection and which are not already instantiated in the service container, it is required to declare those services as public: true in the Configuration/Services.yaml of the given extension.
