Guice @ Google I/O

Jesse and I are presenting Guice 101 at Google I/O, 11:15 this morning:
Guice (pronounced 'juice') is a Jolt award-winnning, lightweight dependency injection framework for Java 5 and above. Put simply, Guice alleviates the need for factories and the use of new in your Java code. Think of Guice's @Inject as the new new. You will still need to write factories in some cases, but your code will not depend directly on them. Your code will be easier to change, unit test and reuse in other contexts.

Hey Bob,

I saw you around in Google IO, figured you wouldn't remember me from IRC so I didn't bother. Anyhow keep up the great work man.

I hope Guice talk go on-line soon.

Well, I read the first part of the (nice) Guice book and saw that you provide a struts2 plugin. Just out of curiosity, are you using struts2 on a daily basis? Or have you already migrated to GWT?

I am asking because I've touched on some JSF on a recent project and it was mind blowing, slow and buggy. Now, I am sticking with struts2, but don't know if people still use it.:)

It's being actively developed. I can't commit to a date just yet, but it shouldn't take too long.
