Is anybody using StructureMap?

I’m finally getting very active in creating the next StructureMap release.  Someone had suggested to me that I include a list in the website of some of the places and projects that are using StructureMap in their development.  If you’re using StructureMap, or evaluated it and rejected it, could you leave a comment on how you’re using it?  I will not list any company names for obvious reasons.


I do refuse to get into a feature war with Spring.Net, Castle, or whatever the Pico/NanoContainer .Net version has become though (ObjectBuilder isn’t even on the map yet IMO).  That’s always sounded like a great way to not have a life.  All the tools are built on different models for different needs anyway. 

I know of:

  • My company (obviously) as the configuration for a rules engine component

  • WinForms and web service system for a small insurance company in Wisconsin

  • Fortune 500 manufacturing company

  • A .Net implementation of the Apache Commons library

  • Jeffrey Palermo’s EZWeb

    Thanks for the comment, and all 3 of your requests are coming in the next release by the end of Feb. 2007.

    Yes we are. We are using it to ensure a good MVC practice, general abstraction of features like DAL, Validation, Transformation etc and it works great.
    Current configuration has is 35 plugin families and some 100 plugins in 11 configuration files.

    This is my feature whish list:
    1. Support for generic classes!
    2. More configuration options
    3. Runtime configuration.

    Keep up the good work.

    Not yet, but a better way of handling dependency injection with a tried and proven framework is in the works for when we upgrade to VS 2005. I’m hoping to look deeper into and incorporate StructureMap into our architecture, if it turns out to be the solution.
