Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) will be the new product from the MS.net framework family.
Microsoft's .NET Framework team is working on MEF which will help to improve compatibility with third-party extensions.
This framework will replace ad-hoc development and will provide single point solution for all API needs for a developer who are writing Application extensions.
Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) will consists of three technologies that work together
- A Dependency Injection (DI) framework
- A Naming and activation service
- A "duck typing" structural type system.
Although this sounds like Object builder (Patterns and Practices), Cwalina (MEF program manager) assures this will be a revolution in .Net Application usage, he added that the development team is working closely with the Unity framework as well as the DI community to develop MEF.
