Inversion of Control with Castle Windsor

In the last few months I have been using Castle Windsor in a project to improve its design and ease testing. I have found Windsor pretty painless to work with and am amazed at the power that I hadn’t tapped into that is available using a IoC container. If you haven’t had a chance to play with dependency injection and inversion of control then you don’t know what you are missing out on.

Oren Eini’s article on working with the Windsor container and the 4 part series by Simone Busoli, were very helpful with getting started with Windsor alongside the official documentation.

Another very good article that was written by James Kovacs, published in MSDN Magazine and released on the MSDN web site yesterday would definitely serve as a very good introductory article which clearly explains the problem and how an IoC container can improve your application’s design.
