I need some advise about choosing and understanding IOC and dependency injection Frameworks.
I read that there are some DI/IOC container out there like :
HiveMind , Spring , Pico , ..
I saw that all of them except Pico need XML Declaration ,
I want to ask which one is easy to use , which one has more feature,
Another thing which i need to know is :
Is there any IOC which use Anotation for introducing dependencies and services?

is there any book about IOC frameworks ?

Thank you.

There are certainly books about different frameworks that feature IOC ("Inversion of Control") containers, but I'm not aware of any books dedicated to the feature itself.

Here's a Sun white paper on the subject. It discusses IOC, as well as several frameworks that utilize IOC:

The Sun article also contains a link to an excellent article by Martin Fowler:
