    I was a little confused by some of the code in Richard's presentation. To me it looked more like Decorator pattern/Attributes/Interceptors than Dependency Injection?

      can you send me some simple examples? I don't really understand the underlying mechanisms. I get the feeling that we have different understandings of the term 'Dependency Injection'

      Hi Joshua. This GIST shows how a Enterprise Java Bean injection­

    Some of his code was using which allows you to simply code by adding some simple annotations.

    I have updated the code to use Spring JavaConfig instead of XML configurations.

      I was referring to the code for my previous presentation 'Spring Data in 10 minutes'

    The next JUG session by democratic vote is 'Java and the Cloud' by Len Weincier. I'll publish the meetup in the next day or two.

    I realize my talk was very short last night, so here is the code:

    The talks themselves were nice but we need moderation bringing people back to the topic and not get them focussed on tools especially when the topic is about tehcniques.

    For tonight, there is off-street and on-street parking at the venue and nearby. There is also security guards there.
    Three of the presenters will have questions after their talk and they will hand out 2 x JRebel licenses (valued around $320 each) and a JetBrains license.

    Does anyone use DI in Android ?

      Lot of context lost on me as a non-Java dev :) Some tools in C# allow you to verify container config. I think there's some misunderstanding wrt testing and DI. One of the things I'll talk about is that DI is *not* about testing, its more fundamental than that. You can often achieve the same testability without using DI

      Indeed, I was involved in a Spring project where Spring DI was selected so mock implementations could be injected into the Spring container at test time. It resulted in a big mess with two implementations of everything and almost no boundaries between tests. And all they really needed was a simple drink - Mockito!
