Microsoft’s answer to DI with Unity

Microsoft Patterns and Practice team has released a new Dependancy Injection Framework – Unity.  This new lightweight library built on top of ‘Object Builder’ can be used stand alone or as part of the Enterprise Library 4.0 when it is released.

This is a step in the right direction and a far superior solution to the first attempts at configuration management which turned many developers off prior versions.

InfoQ has some running commentary with the lead developer on the motivations behind the standardisation.
