Re: [e4-dev] 3.x & 4.x Compatible DI


Joseph, Eclipse (really 'e4') comes with its own injection framework that is JSR330 compliant but also supports dynamics. If you're going to be using this to inject UI elements for Eclipse 4 or EAP then please use the one we supply. Look at org.eclipse.e4.core.contexts and org.eclipse.e4.core.di.*...

We do understand that there are other frameworks out there (notably Guice) and intent to ensure that they play well together at some point in the future. For now you should uise ours since you get if for 'free'.

Thanks for your interest in 4.x,
Eric

All-

I am looking into building a visualization engine for charting and other such purposes using dependency injection.  I am currently using Eclipse 3.7 and I am planning on starting migration to 4.x late 2012 early 2013, however I would like the visualization engine to be running this summer.  Does anyone have any recommendations about using DI in the 3.x & 4.x environments?  Are there any DI frameworks I should steer clear of or towards?  

Any feedback would be appreciated.  Thanks,
