In Detail

Google Guice is an open source software framework for the Java platform released by Google under the Apache License. It provides support for dependency injection using annotations to configure Java objects.

Learning Google Guice is a concise, hands-on book that covers the various areas of dependency injection using the features provided by the latest version of Google Guice. It focuses on core functionalities as well as the various extensions surrounding Guice that make it useful in other areas like web development, integration with frameworks for web development, and persistence.

Learning Google Guice covers Guice extensions which avoid complex API usage. You will start by developing a trivial application and managing dependencies using Guice. As the book gradually progresses, you will continue adding complexity to the application while simultaneously learning how to use Guice features such as the Injector, Provider, Bindings, Scopes, and so on. Finally, you will retrofit the application for the Web, using Guice not only to manage dependencies, but also to solve configuration related problems.
