Hi Matt,

Just wondering whether it is worth mentioning explicitly the fact that runtime weaving is very suitable to designs based on the use of a IoC tool. In understand that you make the opposite argument as a benefit of compile-time weaving (not having to use a IoC tool), but I guess weather something is a benefit or disadvantage it depends on the specific solution...

Re: Comment on paragraph 7.4.1. Pros of runtime

I think you're right that it depends on the specific solution. I think the entire unit testing chapter is something of a "pro" for runtime weaving tools in general, and this is largely due to the necessity of using an IoC tool to accomplish weaving, and the loose(r) coupling it provides when compared to a compile-time weaving tool.
