ICXContainerFacade purpose

Why not leverage the existing IUnityContainer interface?

  • It is almost identical
  • We'd build on existing knonwledge: Unity, EntLib4, potentially an ASP.NET MVC impl as well
  • I understand you want buy-in from the community and support for other IoC containers.
  • You can easily adapt IUnityContainer to WindsorContainer instead of defining a new facade interface and adapting this one to Windsor.

Hi Francois

Thanks for the feedback. We have discussed this. IUnityContainer ships as part of Unity, meaning customers would HAVE to install Unity whether they wanted to use it or not. Having to install it just to get one interface seems heavy. Please vote though in the workitems.
