Managed Extensibility Framework

  •        0

The Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) is a library in .NET that enables greater reuse of applications and components. Using MEF, .NET applications can make the shift from being monolithic to dynamically composed. If you are building extensible applications, MEF is for you.

vs-mef - Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) implementation used by Visual Studio


The MEF that ships with the .NET Framework (System.ComponentModel.Composition) is good, and Visual Studio used it through Dev12 (Visual Studio 2013). But it had performance limitations inherent in its "dynamic composition" capability, which Visual Studio did not require, and Visual Studio needed to surpass the performance that ".NET MEF" could offer.The .NET team went on to create an all new implementation of MEF, which was "portable", and shipped in a NuGet package called Microsoft.Composition. This was faster in some respects than the .NET Framework, but lacked the extensibility Visual Studio required, was incompatible with MEF parts written for ".NET MEF", and suffered from poor startup performance. This new MEF implementation was later renamed to System.Composition, but has otherwise not received much by way of upgrades.
