Inversion of Control vs Dependency injection - can they be used interchangeably?

Inversion of control (IoC) and dependency injection (DI) are related concepts, but they are not the same thing.

Inversion of control is a design principle, while dependency injection is a design pattern that implements IoC.

Inversion of control is a principle that states that a component should receive its dependencies from an external source, rather than creating them itself.

This allows for greater flexibility and modularity, as the component can be used in different contexts and with different dependencies.
