SIOC, Simple Inversion of Control (IoC), is a C# framework that implements an IoC container. This design is based on the ideas presented in Martin Fowler's article "Inversion of Control Containers and the Dependency Injection pattern". The framework is configured using declarative XML. This data can be supplied as an XML file or as a resource within an assembly. Once configured, SIOC takes care of the creation of your objects, handing the application a fully initialized object graph. The application can remain completely agnostic about where the object came from or any of the object's dependencies.
