Plumbing with Spring explores the philosophy and practice of the Dependency Injection design pattern (also known as Inversion of Control), a strategy for meeting the service and configuration requirements of components which can vastly simplify the job of testing assemblies and knitting an application together. Although there are a number of other frameworks available that support this approach, I’ll be looking specifically at Spring, a low-overhead open-source solution available for both Java and .NET. The session will consist of approximately 30% chat and 70% code examples.
