Hello. I am using your library Prism. And I’d like to use your library Enterprise Library. I like MEF, and I was using prism on MEF. But Enterprise Library using Unity. At least, code of example made on Unity. I think, if I will be use both, Unity and MEF, in my app then my app will be have long starting. But I need in quick start my WPF app. How case use:

Try use Prism with Unity? Or try use Enterprise Library with MEF? Maybe is other case?

My personal take to this is, it really depends on your requirements. Mixing those technologies might require you to create some pre-configuration for them to work which may take you some time. On top of that, you may also need additional time to learn how to make these technologies work together. You can also refer to this link regarding the advantages of MEF and Unity.
