Guice versus Spring
Craig Walls, author of spring in action just blogged on the subject of Spring and Guice. Pitting the two inversion of control containers against each other he concludes :
“I’m glad that I spent the time to learn a little about Guice, but I’m not all that “juiced” about using Guice. In addition to all of the reasons given above, I’d much rather build my application against a well-established container like Spring that has a wealth of integration points with other frameworks and APIs”
Anyway it makes for an interesting read and for me it confirmed the initial impression I got from Guice.
