MEF and Prism Integration

Apr 21, 2010 at 10:11 AM

Hi all ,

I need your advice deciding on a new project archetecture I'm going to implement .

Can I use MEF and Prism side by side ?

Is it to coplex to accomplish this ?

Can make the same stuff Prisim does with MEF , Right now , two features Prisim gives not MEF is the Regions and Event aggregator features, all other things I can do with MEf ?


Thanks in advance ...

Hi Wasim

Yes you can use MEF and Prism together. We are working with patterns & practices as part of the Prism v4 release to bake support for MEF in, however there are several posts in the community that illustrate paths to doing this today. A great start point is Jeremy Likeness's blog at He's been doing a quite a bit of work with MEF and Prism at customer sites.
