Presentation: "It's Spring again - Lightweight .NET Containers"
.NET Enterprise Development
Wednesday 09:45 - 10:45
Abstract: The Spring framework has gained significant impact in the Java universe. This is due to the fact that Spring represents a lightweight framework that extensively uses Dependency Injection (DI). DI-based containers support engineering of solutions that don't introduce dependencies on specific middleware solutions, container infrastructures, Web frameworks, or database systems. While Spring got wide spread among Java developers, .NET developers couldn't leverage a similar technology until first the Pico Container implementation for .NET and then an Open Source implementation of the more powerful Spring.NET framework appeared. The session will illustrate the general concepts of Dependency Injection and then introduce the Spring .NET framework. English and C# are being used as the presentation languages.
