The "Dependency Injection" (DI) pattern is the primary idea behind the enormously
popular Spring Framework and Google Guice. This book shows Java
developers how to effectively use DI in multiple frameworks and contexts and
presents the most current technologies, techniques and best practices.
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
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#.
* Both highly technical and highly practical
* Numerous examples in multiple languages, frameworks, and contexts
* The only book available that covers DI from a framework-agnostic perspective;
most concentrate only on Spring.
Dependency Injection is one of the most important ideas of the past decade for
object-oriented developers, but it isn't widely understood at a technical level. DI
has increased in importance as developers have embraced the Agile ideas of
building testable and maintainable code. All Java developers need to master the
DI concepts in this book.
