Mastering Ninject for Dependency Injection

By: Daniel Baharestani

Overview of this book

Dependency injection is an approach to creating loosely coupled applications. Maintainability, testability, and extensibility are just a few advantages of loose coupling. Ninject is a software library which automates almost everything that we need in order to implement a dependency injection pattern. Mastering Ninject for Dependency Injection will teach you everything you need to know in order to implement dependency injection using Ninject in a real-life project. Not only does it teach you about Ninject core framework features that are essential for implementing dependency injection, but it also explores the power of Ninject's most useful extensions and demonstrates how to apply them. Mastering Ninject for Dependency Injection starts by introducing you to dependency injection and what it's meant for with the help of sufficient examples. Eventually, you'll learn how to integrate Ninject into your practical project and how to use its basic features. Also, you will go through scenarios wherein advanced features of Ninject, such as Multi-binding, Contextual binding, providers, factories and so on, come into play. As you progress, Mastering Ninject for Dependency Injection will show you how to create a multilayer application that demonstrates the use of Ninject on different application types such as MVC, WPF, WCF, and so on. Finally, you will learn the benefits of using the powerful extensions of Ninject.

Chapter 2. Getting Started with Ninject

This chapter teaches the user how to add Ninject to a practical project and use the basic features of this framework. The chapter starts with an example demonstrating how to setup and use Ninject in a Hello World project. Then, we will talk about how Ninject resolves dependencies and how it manages object lifetime. Final sections of this chapter will cover code-based configuration using Ninject modules and XML-based configuration using an XML file. By the end of this chapter, the user will be able to setup and use basic features of Ninject.

The topics covered in this chapter are:

  • Hello Ninject!

  • It's all about Binding

  • Object Lifetime

  • Ninject modules

  • XML configuration

  • Convention over configuration
