The design goals for the Policy Injection Application Block are the following:

  • Allow policies to be dynamically applied to any business object in an application.
  • Allow policies to be modified without changing the code.
  • Minimize the performance impact of checking for and applying policies at run time.
  • Provide extensibility of handlers, matching rules, and the interception mechanism.
  • Allow developers to create and reuse key parts of the infrastructure independently. This independence requires the following:
    • Handlers to be independent of the proxy and the pipeline mechanism
    • Configuration and assignment of handlers to be independent of the proxy
