When a standalone program starts, it starts the main program, creates the dependencies, and then proceeds to execute the appropriate methods. However, this is exactly the reverse if IoC is applied. That is, all the dependencies and relationships are created by the IoC container and then they are injected into the main program as properties. The program is then ready for action. This is essentially the reverse of usual program creation, thus the name Inversion of Control principle.
