Hi,

Are these two terms synonims? If not, what's the difference between both?

Thank you

Just going w/ what someone said to me.

IoC = You give the control to the container to get instance of objects. So instead of you doing "new", let the container do that for you.
DI = The act of "wiring" properties to an object.

They are synonymous in my mind. With a little added distinction that Kevin pointed out. So IoC also includes injecting dependencies. But DI is just DI not "new" where IoC includes new and DI.

Inversion of control is a general concept to achieve/implement that we use

Dependency injection in spring.
