I'm building a REST API extension and it has three sub classes.
The "Generic" base class is where all the configuration parameters need to be set (i.e. API url, API key, etc.)
In my main.php, I've created a component section for my base class. However, no matter what I try, the parameters are not read at runtime.
So my question is this: must I create a component config for the class I'm actually using instead of the parent class? More directly, will the framework retrieve configuration parameters for the parent component as well as the instantiated component?
If Yii doesn't do this, is it something that should be considered in an upcoming release?
