Changed Classes and Interfaces
AbstractModule A support class for Modules which reduces repetition and results in a more readable configuration.
Binder Collects configuration information (primarily bindings) which will be used to create an Injector. Guice provides this object to your application's Module implementors so they may each contribute their own bindings and other registrations.

The Guice Binding EDSL

Guice uses an embedded domain-specific language, or EDSL, to help you create bindings simply and readably. This approach is great for overall usability, but it does come with a small cost: it is difficult to learn how to use the Binding EDSL by reading method-level javadocs. Instead, you should consult the series of examples below. To save space, these examples omit the opening {@code binder}, just as you will if your module extends AbstractModule.
This statement does essentially nothing; it "binds the {@code ServiceImpl} class to itself" and does not change Guice's default behavior. You may still want to use this if you prefer your Module class to serve as an explicit manifest for the services it provides. Also, in rare cases, Guice may be unable to validate a binding at injector creation time unless it is given explicitly.
Specifies that a request for a {@code Service} instance with no binding annotations should be treated as if it were a request for a {@code ServiceImpl} instance. This overrides the function of any @ImplementedBy or @ProvidedBy annotations found on {@code Service}, since Guice will have already "moved on" to {@code ServiceImpl} before it reaches the point when it starts looking for these annotations.
In this example, {@code ServiceProvider} must extend or implement {@code Provider}. This binding specifies that Guice should resolve an unannotated injection request for {@code Service} by first resolving an instance of {@code ServiceProvider} in the regular way, then calling get() on the resulting Provider instance to obtain the {@code Service} instance.
Binding A mapping from a key (type and optional annotation) to the strategy for getting instances of the type.
Guice The entry point to the Guice framework. Creates Injectors from Modules.
Inject Annotates members of your implementation class (constructors, methods and fields) into which the Injector should inject values.
Injector Builds the graphs of objects that make up your application.
Key Binding key consisting of an injection type and an optional annotation.
MembersInjector Injects dependencies into the fields and methods on instances of type {@code T}.
Module A module contributes configuration information, typically interface bindings, which will be used to create an Injector.
PrivateBinder Returns a binder whose configuration information is hidden from its environment by default.
PrivateModule A module whose configuration information is hidden from its environment by default.
Provider An object capable of providing instances of type {@code T}.
Provides Annotates methods of a Module to create a provider method binding.
Scope A scope is a level of visibility that instances provided by Guice may have.
Scopes Built-in scope implementations.
