        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
