I have seen references to this term but I can't seem to understand what it actually means. Can someone in very simple terms explain what this is? Also, is the term "dependency injection" the same thing? What exactly do they mean by dependency injection? What is the use of performing such an operation?
I guess I'm reading all these things about the Spring framework but can't really figure out why it is so useful and what it really accomplishes over the traditional approach. Thanks much
