Things StructureMap does not have

The following things are features that are not uncommon in other IoC tools or were present in previous versions of StructureMap.

  • Xml configuration was removed for the 3.0 release.
  • Comprehensive attribute based configuration was also removed for the 3.0 release, but there is some very rudimentary support for attibute based configuration
  • Complex Auto Factory support (this feature may be part of the StructureMap 4.0 release)
