FAQ

Everything you always wanted to know about Petite (but were afraid to ask).

Do I really have to use annotations?

Of course NOT! By default Petite relies on annotations, but you are not forced to use them. There are two annotation-free alternatives:

  • automatic registration, where all fields and methods and arguments are potential injection points. If there is a bean with matching reference name it will be injected as a dependency.
  • manual registration, where you do all the wiring by yourself. You even have a fluent interface for that :) Power-to-the-people!
