Comparison to ACS Commons

The ACS AEM Commons project also contains an implementation of an AEM Object Injector. It has basically the same feature-set as the wcm.io version, but it uses name-based injection based on field names.

The wcm.io AEM Object injector use class-based injection, making it easier to use independently from the field name. Since version 1.1 it supports more features than the ACS AEM Commons version.
