      Unity is a lightweight, extensible dependency injection container. It facilitates building loosely coupled applications and provides developers with the following advantages:
      • Simplified object creation, especially for hierarchical object structures and dependencies
      • Abstraction of requirements; this allows developers to specify dependencies at run time or in configuration and simplify management of crosscutting concerns
      • Increased flexibility by deferring component configuration to the container
      • Service location capability; this allows clients to store or cache the container
      • Instance and type interception
  • Supported Operating System

    Windows 7, Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-Bit x86), Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 editions, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Vista, Windows XP
