Unity Community Contributions and Interception
Now that Unity has been released into the wild, there has definitely been a bit of interest swirling around it. One of my key wants for a good IoC container is basic interception capabilities. My criteria for evaluating a container usually comes down to the following: Configurability (XML, DSL, Code) Dependency Resolution, usually opinionated Lifetime Management (Per Thread, Pooled, Singleton, Transient, etc) Extensibility for Interception So, I realized that Unity was missing some of these things ......

xUnit.net RC3 Just Released
Well, Brad Wilson and Jim Newkirk must really be busy lately. After I talked about the release of xUnit.net RC2, just today, Brad announced the release of RC3. As always, you can find the latest bits here. This fixes a number of bugs and adds CruiseControl.NET and ASP.NET MVC Preview 2 support as well in addition to the Resharper 3.1 and TestDriven.NET support. For more information about it, check out Brad's post here. More or less, they are feature complete for version 1.0 and the only that I think ......

DC ALT.NET Wrapup and CI Factory
Well, due to the weather beyond our control, the crowd was a bit smaller than expected at the February meeting of DC ALT.NET. It seems people panic in the Washington DC area if there is even a hint of moisture in the air or a snow flake hits the ground. It was a smaller crowd, yet passionate and I'd rather have that then a big crowd that wasn't involved at all. We had such people as Craig Andera, Jay Flowers, Kevin Hegg among others who attended. But the topics were great talking about functional ......

Unity 1.0 Released into the Wild
As Chris Tavares mentioned in his blog, Unity 1.0 has been released a couple of days earlier than the April 7th release date mentioned by Grigori Melnik earlier. Scott Densmore also announced this as well as working on porting the inteception from ObjectBuilder2 which I talked about earlier in some of my Unity and IoC containers posts. Looking forward to that post as we've shared some emails on the subject. Would You Like To Know More? For those looking for my posts on the matter, I've covered it ......

Covering NUnit 2.4.7
It's interesting that a flurry of releases of testing frameworks have been released lately with Gallio, xUnit.net and of course NUnit. Charlie Poole recently announced on a lot of the discussion boards I belong to recently that NUnit 2.4.7 was recently released. You can read all about what's been added here with the release notes. What's New and Interesting? What's interesting about this release? Well, NUnit no longer depends on log4net, thus getting rid of some dependency issues with regards to ......

IoC and Unity - The Basics and InterceptionIoC and Unity - The Basics and Interception
I realize it's been a while since my last post on Inversion of Control containers and looking at Unity as one of them. Since that time, Scott Hanselman linked to some of the comparisons that I did for IoC containers here. I'll be the first to admit that the look was a bit naive, but to get you all interested in looking at IoC container and how they can improve your applications. It was suggested here that my posts weren't a complete comparison, although in my previous posts I covered a lot of those ......

IoC Container, Unity and Breaking Changes Galore
Update: IoC and Unity - The Basics and Interception As Grigori Melnik noted on my blog previously as well as his own, there was a brand new drop of the Unity Application Block as of March 4th. This by far was a huge update with a lot of breaking changes. That teaches me to use a CTP of any product and blog about it actively as it compares to other Inversion of Control (IoC) containers. Glad I didn't do a lot on ASP.NET MVC just yet but I have a few good projects going on the side with that now. Where ......

IoC Containers, Unity and ObjectBuilder2 - The Saga Continues
Update: Fixed code changed from CTP and More in the series: IoC Container, Unity and Breaking Changes Galore I just wanted to revisit the whole Unity Application Block just once more to look at a few more things including handling parameters, instances and so on. If you hadn't seen, there was another source drop of Unity as of 2/26, so if you haven't picked it up, feel free to do so here. So, we're going to continue our look at DI and IoC containers as they pertain to different needs. I'm not going ......

IoC and the Unity Application Block Once Again
Update: Fixed code changed from CTP and More in the series: IoC Containers, Unity and ObjectBuilder2 - The Saga Continues IoC Container, Unity and Breaking Changes Galore After the reaction of my last post of talking about IoC and the Unity Application Block, I thought I'd include a few more samples of using Unity and how they compare with other IoC containers. I realized after my first one, that I didn't give any love to StructureMap and I'm going to fix that for a brief sample as well. I realize ......
