Google Guice 2.0 in Beta

Tagged:  

For those following dependency injection frameworks in Java, Google Guice has released its beta snapshot (stamped 2008-10-16) for Guice 2.0.

What's coming in Guice 2.0?

  • A tree-like structure for Injectors, i.e., an Injector can have children that inherit all of its bindings.
  • An introspection API: like reflection but for Guice bindings.
  • The ability to inject members of sets and maps using Multibinder and MapBinder respectively.
  • Private modules.
  • Pluggable type converters that convert constant string bindings to other types, i.e., Dates, URLs, etc.
  • And more...

The official word is now that Guice 2.0 will be released in Fall 2008. (The Id Software release schedule: it'll be done when it's done!)
