Glenn Block has posted to the ALT.Net mailing list that the P&P team are working on a dependency injection application block.
At this point, I am not really sure what to think. ObjectBuilder was bad. I am still having to deal with fallout from that failure.
The OSS community already has several mature IoC products.
Just in case Microsoft has missed them:
1/ Castle Windsor
2/ Structure Map
If they want to decouple themselves from an IoC implementation, there is a way to do that already in .Net. It is called IServiceProvider, and is already supported by the IoC implementation. A default implementation can be done with 15 lines of code, if they want to provide one.
I would really like to know, why the hell do we need another duplication of OSS?
