The WinForms project to which I have been assigned contains this file in the bin\debug folder.

Could someone tell me what it does?

It's about 42,000 lines long and about 2 MB in size.

Is it from Microsoft?  What's it do?

What are the alternatives?

its not microsoft - a quick google search and I found this http://www.springframework.net/overview.html I think it could be part of thier .net application framework.

Thanks.  But I still can not understand what it does.  Can you think of one sentence that describes what Spring.Core does?

To use it needs Dependency Injection.  Or does Spring empower us to use DI?

I don't think a sentence will explain it - it looks to me like a software factory, but I've never used it just found it on google from your filename. I would give thier documentation a good read to be able to understand what it does. This is a good place to start I think

thanks. a co-worker told me the biggest feature is that it allows a single DLL to be updated when updating software that uses Spring.net.
