Google Guice (pronounced "juice")
[2]
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.
[3]
Dependency injection is a design pattern whose core principle is to separate behavior from dependency
resolution.
Guice allows implementation classes to be bound programmatically to an interface, then injected into constructors,
methods or fields using an @Inject annotation. When more than one implementation of the same interface is
needed, the user can create custom annotations that identify an implementation, then use that annotation when
injecting it.
Being the first generic framework for dependency injection using Java annotations in 2008, Guice won the 18th Jolt
Award for best Library, Framework, or Component.
