Dependency Injection is an in-depth guide to the current best practices for using the Dependency Injection pattern-the key concept in Spring and the rapidly-growing Google Guice. It explores Dependency Injection, sometimes called Inversion of Control, in fine detail with numerous practical examples. Developers will learn to apply important techniques, focusing on their strengths and limitations, with a particular emphasis on pitfalls, corner-cases, and best practices.
This book is written for developers and architects who want to understand Dependency Injection and successfully leverage popular DI technologies such as Spring, Google Guice, PicoContainer, and many others. The book explores many small examples of anchor concepts and unfolds a larger example to show the big picture.
Written primarily from a Java point-of-view, this book is appropriate for any developer with a working knowledge of object-oriented programming in Java, Ruby, or C#.
