When Spring (and other frameworks) started, they touted Dependency Injection and Inversion of Control as this new amazing thing (which it was, at the time). If you now resolve dependencies at compile time, it feels like it's the opposite of that, and what IoC was trying to get around at the time.

It looks like it uses a different approach to hook up dependencies at compile time, so that it's not a massive mess to change one implementation of a service for another, but it's still a bit amusing to see how paradigms shift over the years.

I'm keeping an eye out for integration between Mironaut and Grails, which I hear may happen with a Micronaut profile for Grails. crossing fingers
