Conventions

Last updated 11 months ago

Our first aim is to remove friction, it is not always easy and cannot be done every single time, but one thing that can give a lot of benefits in this area is to move from a configuration based toolkit to a convention based toolkit, we suppose that this concept is widely accepted and is nothing new.

What happens when these lines of code are executed:

public partial class App : Application
{
public App()
{
var bootstrapper = new WindsorApplicationBootstrapper<MainView>();
}
}

A lot of things:

  1. The application Startup event is wired;

  2. When the Startup event is fired:

    1. The Inversion of Control container is created;

    2. The MEF composition container is created;

    3. The composition container is composed against the bootstrapper itself;

    4. The Inversion of Control container is configured using the bootstrap conventions;

    5. The main window (the one identified by the TShellView generic parameter) is resolved and shown;
