I've never really understood why those particular 5 design principles became a sort of "top 5". Then I grokked dependency inversion and it really changed how I write code.

> And reading some more about it, I found this good article: http://qualityisspeed.blogspot.com/2014/08/why-i-dont-teach-...

That article bashes (among other things) IOC containers and mocking frameworks. I absolutely hate Spring IOC and mockito. But dependency inversion is not dependency injection. It wasn't until I got sufficiently fed up with Spring being everywhere in my Java code that I figured out how to hide Spring as an implementation detail.

This is where I ended up: https://sites.google.com/site/unclebobconsultingllc/home/art...

These are just a bunch of ideas that have been cobbled-together by Robert Martin and accidentally ended up as folklore in a world without rigor and order.

Kevlin Henney basically refuted the idea that SOLID has any meaning or use in software development.
