The ServiceLocator has been used within a class to create a service, as this service has not been passed through in the constructor.
The ServiceLocator is just used statically to create this service (it has not been passed through). Is this Unit Test-able?

Based on my understanding, the ServiceLocator
was designed so that it could be used in tests. Basically, when you a request an instance to the
, it will delegate the request to its locator provider
in order to create the corresponding object. Hence, you will only need to create a simple mock locator provider that would return the corresponding
mocks for the requested objects. This locator provided can be set using the
static method. You can find a example of this in the
protected override void ConfigureServiceLocator()
ServiceLocator.SetLocatorProvider(() => this.Container.Resolve<IServiceLocator>());
You can find more information about configuring the ServiceLocator
in their codeplex site:
