 Of course there are several aspects that contribute to create a Good Application, and from
our standpoint one them is Inversion of Control, which deserves attention. However the usage
of Inversion of Control is a matter of taste, and people should not feel obligate to use,
or might disagree with the benefits.
 
-Castle's goal is to provide a set of standalone tools and an Inversion of Control implementation
that provide a rendezvous point for these tools - and possible other - although they are totally
independent. Initially our set of tools will consist of:

 DynamicProxy generates proxies for interfaces or classes on the fly through the generation
of IL code, just like Java proxies, which is unavailable in CLI.

access to applications, configuration and service invocation.

 If one wants a more complex container it can uses the Windsor container which extends the
Microkernel to provide a more complex solution. It aims to provide external configuration,
configuration overriding, subcontainers and a profile concept that will allow the user to
switch to different configurations modes, ie 'production', 'development', 'profiling'. The
profile only defines a set of service implementation and facilities configurations.

-Inspired by Ruby language and concepts we're going to provide a more easily way of configure
and use applications, in an attempt to avoid XML descriptors, complex deployments, complex
setup and steep learning curve. This is subject to research, but should be constantly in our
minds when planning and coding.

 ===== Community =====
 
 The Aspect# project have three developers involved, and the Castle container has only one.
This incubation process has the objective of attract more contributors, new ideas, new perceptions
and even new use cases that will drive our roadmap.
 
-
 ===== Core Developers =====
 
 Currently only the people that are already involved with these projects. People that are
involved with this project as user may be invited to join our efforts as well.
 
-
 ===== Alignment =====
 
 We're concern in not delivering only Microsoft CLI compatible code so the project must be
tested against Mono before being release. For logging purposes we're going to use log4net
available through the ASF Logging TLP.
 For building purposes we're currently using NAnt, which is a port of Apache ANT, but its
licensed as GPL. Test cases are implemented using NUnit, a port of JUnit, another standard
and is currently licensed under zlib/libpng License.
