Hey guys,

I was wondering if it was possible to access type params within another
type.

Here is an example of what I would like to do.

Puppet::Type.newtype(:a) do

newparam(:name) do
isnamevar
end
newparam(:path) do
end
end
Puppet::Type.newtype(:b) do

newparam(:name) do
isnamevar
end
newparam(:needs) do
/* I want to access path param from 'a' type here
something like resource[:needs].path */

end
end
And the manifest calling that would be

a {'test-a' :
path => '/usr',
}

b {'test-b' :
needs => a
}

Is it possible ?

What is the example supposed to mean? It doesn't make sense. As a best
guess, what you actually want to do is access the parameter values of a
resource *instance*, not (as you wrote) the parameter[ definition]s of a
resource *type*. It might be possible to do that (involving somewhat
different manifest syntax), but it would be decidedly non-idiomatic.

Why do you want this? Your example is too abstract to tell me much.
