    > Dependency injection has always been such a bad name for the concept. It is just passing dependencys as arguments.


    Dependency Injection means using tooling to "inject" the dependency, instead of passing an explicit argument.


    > Think of Guice's `@Inject` as the new `new`.

    Like many architecutral design patterns, toy examples don't illustrate the concept well. It's used for doing things like switching a large service-based system from using external databases and remote services for production, to in-memory everything for testing.

    “There are many advantages to using dependency injection, but doing so manually often leads to a large amount of boilerplate code to be written. Guice is a framework that makes it possible to write code that uses dependency injection without the hassle of writing much of that boilerplate code”

    This is a common misconception. Guice’s docs delineate between dependency injection as a pattern and Guice as a framework that supports that pattern.


  • Handling two contexts

    Usually each context has a different scope and lifetime associated with it. Here, it sounds like there are two distinct scopes: server and request (cf. how Guice models scopes: https://github.com/google/guice/wiki/Scopes). It is rarely sensible to merge the scopes or contexts together. If we think about a context, it contains several things:

    As said in the title, we will focus on the dependency inversion principle and one of its application : dependency injection. For production-ready applications, it would be better to rely on a framework and not implement its own container. For it, the java ecosystem have 3 frameworks available : Spring, Guice and Dagger.

    And it doesn't really matter whether you have created circular reference structure of whether you have messed up your binding and now objects which was supposed to disappear after one request is only doing that when all database connections are quiescent (which happens easily in testing, but may not happen for days in production).

    The following section is an example of injecting our service using Guice, a dependency injection framework for Java made by Google. The concept is to reference bindings of every component you can inject in your program, so that the library can generate a class of any type, automatically.

What are some alternatives?
