The Patterns & Practices team has recently released a port of the Unity Application Block to Microsoft Silverlight 2.  This release includes the following capabilities and packaging:

  • The single Microsoft.Practices.Unity.dll file in the Silverlight version contains all the classes from the three separate desktop DLLS: Microsoft.Practices.Unity.dll, Microsoft.Practices.ObjectBuilder2.dll, and Microsoft.Practices.Unity.StaticFactoryExtension.dll.  You only need to reference and deploy the one assembly in your Silverlight projects.
  • Becase of the differences in the Silverlight security model, only public types can be created and injected by the container.  The desktop version allows you to also inject internal types.
  • XML configuration is not supported.
  • The Unity interception mechanism is not supported.

An updated quickstart is also included.
