(Currently listed on as Jehoel.AspNetDependencyInjection and Jehoel.AspNetDependencyInjection.Mvc)

AspNetDependencyInjection allows "Classic" ASP.NET Web Forms applications to use Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection to compose application services.

  • This project is derived from my earlier Unity.WebForms project which provided DI using Unity, located at

  • This particular package's main objective is supporting ASP.NET Web Forms 4.7.2's new WebObjectActivator which means that Page, UserControl and other types can use true constructor dependency injection. Previously applications had to use "property injection" which many consider to be an anti-pattern.

  • This project is not intended for use with ASP.NET Web API, ASP.NET 5, nor ASP.NET Core. Those platforms already have established dependency-injection infrastructure ecosystems available to their users.

AspNetDependencyInjection.Mvc exposes AspNetDependencyInjection as an implementation of System.Web.Mvc.IDependencyResolver for use with ASP.NET MVC 5.x.
