Domain Oriented Programming



The software that we write often invokes other software to get parts of the job done. These are known as Services or Dependencies. If Class A is making use of some Class B, then Class A depends on Class B, so Class B is a dependency of Class A. The principle of Dependency Inversion (says that a class should not contain any hard-coded direct calls to specific instances of any of its dependencies. Instead, it should receive these instances as parameters during initialization.

That's all very nice, but passing dependencies around can become quite a complicated business, and in large systems it can become a nightmare.
