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 4. Ninject in Action

This chapter shows how to set up different types of applications using Ninject. We will implement a concrete scenario using a variety of application types to see how to set up and use Ninject for injecting the dependencies. By the end of this chapter, the user will be able to set up and use Ninject for all kinds of described applications.

Topics covered:

  • Windows Forms applications

  • WPF and Silverlight applications

  • ASP.NET MVC applications

  • WCF applications

  • ASP.NET Web Forms applications

Although how Ninject helps us inject dependencies into our application components is the same across different types of applications, setting these applications up varies according to their architectures. Some new frameworks such as ASP .NET MVC are intentionally designed to support DI, while some older frameworks such as ASP .NET are not even capable of supporting all DI patterns.

We have already learned most of the features that Ninject offers and this chapter helps us to put them together...
