Google Guice

I have a 'simple' question, what is the status of Google Guice nowadays?
Does it get used a lot?
Does anyone of you have experience or are you using it in your own applications?
And when or why would I chose Guice over EJB or Spring for DI?

Thanks in advance,

Google has posted a comparison to Spring here

To be fair that will be biased since considering who wrote it so you should also read this article by the Spring in Action author

I think by reading both articles you get a fairly balanced comparison.

Keep in mind this is a comparison of Guice to the relevant parts of Spring (DI only). Spring incorporates way more than just DI. If you have need for these things (like I do) I prefer to just use Spring for all of it as there is no comparable features in Guice.
