I'm frequently baffled by the hoops one must go through in order to setup things like dependency injection in a web app. While browsing through Ayende's Raccoon Blog source code, I noticed he avoided using IoC and instead created a helper class to manage store/session lifetimes. Seemed like more work than I wanted to do.
Instead of spending time avoid the IoC setup pain, I took Ninject.MVC3 for a test drive. It went something like:
- Use Nuget to get Ninject.MVC3
- Edit RegisterServices -- the Nuget package conveniently adds some code in the App_Start folder so you don't have to worry about the boiler plate. In this case, I wanted to pass a controller an instance of IDocumentStore for RavenDB:
3. Use IDocumentStore in my controllers.
